Welcome, citizens, to yet another episode of Inside the Nation with Dusty Nielson. This week, he takes a look at moving this year’s first round pick at the upcoming draft, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins trade rumours, Bob Nicholson, and a whole lot more.
To start off today’s episode, Dusty jumps into the mix with a look at Ken Hitchcock’s future with the Oilers. After reports came out that Hitchcock signed a three-year deal with the organization, we try to figure out what exactly that role might look like. An advisor of some kind? Next up, Dusty looked at the Oilers’ first round pick at the upcoming draft and wonders whether or not it might be worth moving it for immediate help. Would it make sense for the Oilers to go fishing with what looks likely to be another top 5-10 pick? From there, Nielson breaks down the ridiculous rumours that are circulating right now with Ryan Nugent-Hopkins being the centrepiece. Would it make sense for the Oilers to move RNH to try and land a top-pairing defenceman? It worked well the first time, right? Needless to say, it was another jam-packed episode of Inside the Nation and you’re going to want to check it out.
