Whether you know him as TSN's Edmonton beat reporter, from his radio appearances, or his Twitter account, Ryan Rishaug has been a staple in the Edmonton sports scene for over 15 years now. I had a chance to sit down with Ryan to talk about the Oilers, the changing environment of sports coverage, and whether or not the Oilers will make the playoffs. Here's part of our conversation.

The results have been very good for the Edmonton Oilers in the early going of the 2016-17 season. Notwithstanding Tuesday’s entertaining (and close) loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins, Edmonton owns a 9-4-1 record and some surprisingly excellent underlying numbers.
Impressively, the Oilers have done it with a lot of players on the shelf. In this week’s edition of What Would You Do Wednesday, we turn our focus to those players. What tough roster decisions does the team make when it gets healthy?
