Welcome, citizens, to another live episode of Inside the Nation with Dusty Nielson, the Facebook Live show that breaks down all things Edmonton Oilers.
To kick off today’s episode, Dusty jumped in with a look at the Taylor Hall rumours that hit Twitter today which suggested that the former winger wants to come back to Edmonton. Would it make sense for #4 to make a return? Could the Oilers even make it work under the salary cap? Next up, he looked at the Oilers rookies going up against the NAIT/MacEwan All-Stars and wonders whether or not there’s a chance to repair that relationship. With training camp just around the corner, there are still plenty of NHL rumours circulating so Dusty looked at whether or not it would make sense to go fishing for a guy like Mike Hoffman out of Florida? Getting back to the Oilers, it seems like many folks have Caleb Jones slotted in for the Oilers’ third pairing now that Andrej Sekera has been moved out, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that Dave Tippett will see things the same way. Should Jones be pencilled in with a job to lose? Could someone else beat him for the job? Lastly, Dusty looked at free agency acquisition, Tomas Jurco, and wondered where he’ll fit in the lineup. Would he have a better chance to crack the squad over someone like Gaetan Haas? That’s what the #SummerOfLineys is all about, friends.
