The Roundup

Updated: January 11, 2018 at 2:02 am by Nation World HQ


Leafs shouldn’t be tanking, the Canucks climb back up the standings, Red Wings re-live jail, comparing Gaudreau to the NHL’s best, Oilers building on inheritance, a KHL player goes crazy, NCAA free agent frenzy, no goalie equipment changes, new advanced stats and more in this week’s Nation Roundup brought to you by Violent Gentlemen.

In the Roundup we go around the Nation Network and give you some of the best articles of the last couple weeks. Every once in a while it’s good to know what other teams are doing, or maybe you find an interesting article you wouldn’t have found otherwise.
