NATION TALKS: Oct. 15 Mailbag

Did you get a chance to read our Monday Mailbag this week? If you didn’t (or, well, did but want to hear new answers) you’re in luck! We’re starting a new video feature where we’re going to answer mailbag questions on Instagram live video AND take more questions from our viewers.

Here’s the original mailbag. We walked about whether Oilers fans’ early-season frustration is valid, when Mikko Koskinen will make his first start, whether it was smart for the Oilers to go on the road after opening up in Europe, the Auston Matthews vs Connor McDavid discussion, and Todd McLellan’s blender. Somebody also asked if we thought it was time for McDavid to cut his flow. What?! Seriously??

Check it out on our YouTube channel! (Also, we’re @officialoilersnation on Instagram for those who don’t follow us yet.)

Just like last year, it was important for us to try and make this trip as cheap as possible and to announce it as early as we could to give you as much time as possible to get your life in order. Based on last year’s trip, this is a roadie that you really won’t want to miss — it’s an absolute blast and a good chance to get ridiculous behind enemy lines. And since I already know that you want to come, let’s get to the when, where, and how much, shall we?

Give me the details, guy:

  • When? Saturday, November 17th, 2018
  • How much? The depends on how many people are coming with you. To put it another way, we’ve got a range of options including single occupancy ($329/person) up to groups of four ($249/person).
  • Why? Because we love to party
  • Where do you buy tickets? Right here, friend. But be warned, just like the last time we did this, the trip sold out quickly and procrastinating will be your enemy if you want to come.
