Another week in the NHL season is now in the can and as expected Phil Kessel leads the league in points, Nikolai Khabilbulin has the lowest GAA among goalies and the Oilers are in first place in the West. No, you haven't accidentally stumbled through a worm hole into a parallel universe.
This is NationRadio.
The first guest this week on NationRadio is Danny Gray of TheLeafsNation who is positively beside himself to talk about the 7-2-1 Toronto Maple Leafs. Other topics of justified humble bragging include the strong play of Phil Kessel and Dion Phaneuf.
Next up on the docket in the Court of Lowetide is a guy who knows a thing or two about a thing or two Kirk Luedeke. Regional scout for Red Line Report; Leudeke and Lowetide give a review of the 2011 NHL draft as teams decide who stays in the NHL and who returns to junior. The dominance of RNH comes up - surprise of surprises.
Lowetide discusses a variety of topics including the early season performances of the Oilers in this here 2011-12 NHL season.
Jeff Krushell discusses the state of healthiness of the Oilers including the impact of an NHL season's worth of travel time on an NHL team. Krushell and LT also discuss the injury to Gagner as well as concussion problems and their impact on the game.
Ryan Batty from the Copper n Blue has been described by Lowetide as "always (having) a srong opinion and doesn't waiver when it is unpopular." We can't imagine what that would look like but Batty has the gall to come on NationRadio and make a case that Ryan Nugent-Hopkins should have been returned to junior by the Edmonton Oilers.
Lowetide freestyles for several minutes over the classic Wutang Hit "C.R.E.A.M."
