Inside the Nation: Leon Draisaitl, the second line and PLAYOFFS?

The Oilers haven’t been able to “put together a second line that could piss a drop”.

It’s that time of the week again, every Monday and Thursday at 2:30pm MT we go live on Facebook with Dustin Nielson of TSN1260 fame? infamy? Lots to discuss so let’s have a look at some of the talking points from this one:

  • The playoffs and the Oilers chances.
  • Hitchcock’s comments post-Sharks game.
  • Comments on John Shannon’s shots fired at Nugent-Hopkins “I’d like to see more out of Nugent-Hopkins, but what can you do?”
  • The line combos coming soon with JJ – Nuge – JP with an extended look at Jesse.
  • Leon Draisaitl criticism?
  • Speaking of a critic, Spector getting shelled over the weekend is discussed.
  • Dusty asks, what is an untouchable player, really?

    Reffing is BAD … Philly scores but ref believes Pit goalie Murry makes the save blows whistle! … Murray never ever had the puck! Disallowed as #10 ref ( shall not be named ) hot on the whistle blows the call! NO GOAL!! … The wanted to use would surely have not made this post possible! =\

    The Oiler interviews today – They are a very unhappy bunch for being called out, especially Drai. Either they respond and play great for the rest of the season or they are not mentally tough enough and fold .
    The road trip will show what kind of players the Oilers have. (and the kind that Chai recruited)

  • Big Nuggets

    Media guys seem to love taking shots at Nuge. I think they just like trolling Oilers fans and they know that pisses them off. Trolling is the new media strategy to get views I guess.
