It was a special day for us at Nation HQ as we welcomed our first-ever guest onto the podcast. Legendary Oiler Big Georges Laraque — thrower of fists, scorer of hat tricks, and all-around beauty of an individual — joined us to talk about the Oilers of now and the Oilers of back then.
Personally, this was an incredibly exciting conversation for me as Georges was my favourite Oiler as a kid. His Oilers jersey was the first that I owned as a kid and I got it signed by him as a nine-year-old. We started off by asking Georges about his thoughts on the current Oilers and what their issues are and how they can improve. He then talked about how great it was playing in Edmonton and how much the pressure and excitement from the fans pushed him and other players to work harder. Beyond hockey, Georges talked about the importance of his charity work and the impact it had on his career. It was an amazing talk and Georges is an amazing person. Now toss in some headphones and relax because you won’t want to miss this.
