Each Monday, Station Nation will have a feature called "Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down". The feature will have the best, and the worst from the Sea Dogs, QMJHL, and CHL.

- ... to Stanislav Galiev for making the trip across the Atlantic even in the wake of a feud with the Moscow Dynamo.
- ... to Subway on sponsoring the Canada/Russia Challenge. "Super Series" is a big improvement.
- ... to the Sea Dogs for the return of the 07-08 french speaking public address announcer.
- ... to the Moncton media on the lack of news surrounding Kirill Kabanov. He is rumored to be in New York and heading for Moncton.
- ... to the Sea Dogs front office for not having there schedules printed yet. Around 4,000 people have come through the Harbour Station doors for the pre-season. To bad none of them know when to return.
