A new week means a fresh episode of the Real Life Podcast coming straight for your earholes, and this week’s podcast gets a little bit heated as Jay returns from his vacation to discover the Oilers have turned into a dumpster fire since he’s been gone.
With Jay back from his Australian vacation, there was a lot of catching up to do as he reacclimatizes himself to being back home and being back in the mix with the Oilers. When he left, the Oilers were in the midst of a solid run that saw them climbing their way up the Western Conference standings, but then things really went sideways so we hear the Squire describe what it was like to be frustrated by the Oilers while trying to relax on the other side of the planet. On the bright side, Nation HQ will be getting a new Australian game called Finska set up in the yard and it could be used to solve any and every dispute that comes up with the crew.
With the vacation recap out of the way, the guys got into a lot of Oilers talk as they try to figure out what the hell is going on with this hockey team. Is there a trade out there that could potentially solve the issues we’ve run into? Considering this is the fourth year of McDavid’s career, the guys dipped their toes in the unthinkable waters of Connor asking for a trade and what that would mean for not only the team but for the franchise. Even more disappointing than the thought of McDavidless Oilers is the idea that no one would probably blame him if he did want out. As you can imagine, this was a tough conversation to have based on the hopes and dreams that came with winning the McDavid lottery. Could the Oilers actually be on the verge of ruining the golden opportunity they were given?
