It’s Tuesday afternoon and after a quick trip to Montreal (and subsequently being trapped in an airport), Dusty Nielson is coming to you live from Facebook to make sense of all things Edmonton Oilers. Missed the live show? That’s okay, but next time make sure you follow @Oilersnationalt on twitter for all the updates and posts of when to be ready.
To start off today’s episode, Dusty jumps right in with a look at the Oilers’ third jerseys that leaked from this past week. Do you like the look of the navy blue? That led to a conversation about what is the best Oilers jersey of all time? Naturally, the answers that came in were all over the map. Next up, Dusty addresses the Rasmus Ristolainen trade rumours that are circling and wonders whether or not there would be a fit for him here in Edmonton. What would you give up? Could Jesse Puljujarvi and a pick be a starting point for a trade like this? Ristolainen rumour behind us, how could we run through an episode of Inside the Nation without revisiting the #SummerOfLineys? This week, Dusty shakes things up by having Sam Gagner up on the top line with McDavid and Draisaitl, leaving the rest of the roster a little more balanced than we’ve seen before. Could it work? Does Gagner have the smarts to play on the top line? Lastly, Tomas Jurco hasn’t received much attention around here lately and we close out this week’s episode with a look at the former Red Wing and a guess at whether or not he’ll be able to crack the roster in October.
