Inside the Nation (Bonus Episode) – Koskinen extension

Alright, it’s been a whole five minutes since Dustin Nielson finished his Monday Inside the Nation show and we’ve got breaking Oilers news on our hands. With that said, Dusty hopped right back on Facebook live to give his first reaction.

The official signing is a three-year extension with a $4.5 AAV. You can read the full breakdown of the trade here, and you can watch Nielson’s first Inside the Nation video here. In my unprofessional opinion, this is a pretty ballsy signing to make for a 30-year-old who has only played 31 career goals. Are they going to try sign Talbot as well in addition to the Koskinen signing? Or does this reassure that a trade is coming?

Watch the Dustin Nielson reaction below:
