Inside the Nation: Game Preview, Mark Hunter’s gig with Hockey Canada, and raiding Tampa Bay

Welcome, welcome, welcome to a Thursday edition of Inside the Nation with Dustin Nielson! In today’s episode, Dusty previews tonight’s game against the Vancouver Canucks, breaks down the Oilers’ GM search, looks at line combinations, and so much more.

To start off this week’s episode, Dusty jumps right into things with a look at tonight’s matchup against the Vancouver Canucks and what to expect as the Oilers face an opponent on the second half of a back-to-back set. From there, he looks at Mark Hunter’s new gig with Hockey Canada and whether or not that takes him out of the running to be the Oilers’ new GM. If Hunter is indeed out of the mix, would it make sense to look at what’s going on in Tampa Bay and trying to scoop someone from their management staff? From there, Dusty looks at the video that came out today of Jesse Puljujarvi riding on an exercise bike only three days after getting surgery to correct a hip issue. As always, it was another jam-packed episode of Inside the Nation and you’ll definitely want to get this one into your eyeballs.
