Inside the Nation: Talbot Rumours, Hitchcock on the sidelines, and Jesse Puljujarvi

With the Oilers season swirling the bowl and into the sewers below, there are a lot of problems that need solutions and, thankfully, Dusty Nielson is here to help.

Since we don’t think anybody could have ever expected the Oilers’ season to go this poorly, it’s hard to wrap our heads around all of the problems we’re watching on a nightly basis. Fortunately, Dusty is here every Monday and Thursday to offer up some ideas and solutions for fixing everything wrong with the Edmonton Oilers. To start off this week’s episode, Nielson looks at Ken Hitchcock taking a back seat at practice again this and what it means to let Glen Gulutzan run the show. Have the players tuned him out? What’s really going on there? Next up, Dusty looks at the Cam Talbot rumours that have him linked to the Philadelphia Flyers and whether or not the Flyers would pay a premium to have Talbot mentor Carter Hart? Up next, it wouldn’t be an episode of Inside the Nation without taking a look at Jesse Puljujarvi’s usage. Considering the way the organization is keeping other prospects like Tyler Benson and Kailer Yamamoto down in Bakersfield, how does it make any sense for Puljujarvi to not get the same treatment?
