With another week in the books, that means it was time for a fresh episode of Oilersnation Radio to land in your ear holes. It’s the weekly podcast that discusses all things Oilers and whatever else we can crowbar in.
It’s been another action-packed seven days for our beloved Edmonton Oilers since we last recorded, and they finished their week with a 3-1 record which gave us plenty to talk about. We start things off by recapping the week that was, specifically going through the games against Minnesota and Chicago and talking about how sometimes the stats don’t always match up to results. With that in mind, Cooom drops a hot take on us about a major player being moved out of town and we give our thoughts on whether or not it will happen. Major player? Leaving? Say it ain’t so, Cooom.
Next up, we looked at the Oilers upcoming road trip four-game road trip which starts off in Detroit on Saturday and I wanted to know what the boys think McLellan will do with his goaltenders. Will he go back to Koskinen after registering his first shutout of the year or will he go back to Cam Talbot who struggled a bit in his last start against the Wild? As the Oilers continue to play well, these decisions will come under more and more scrutiny and we debate what we think is the correct approach with the goaltenders. From there, we get into Drew Doughty’s interview with NHL.com where he talks about being scared of Connor McDavid so we took a few minutes to gush over the captain. Lastly, we get into a heated debate over The Answer title that currently lives with Alex Chiasson. Before him, Ty Rattie held the title but lost it due to injury. Will he be able to regain the belt upon his return? Will someone else throw their name into contention?
