Welcome, citizens, to a brand new episode of Oilersnation Radio! This week, we had a lot to discuss as the Oilers find themselves in first place in the Pacific Division as we head into December, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins’ injury and what that means for the roster, and what the hell is going on with the NHL referees.
A brand new episode of ONR drops tomorrow! @OilersnationHQ
Here is this weeks @SherwoodFord GIANT Question of the week!

To start off episode 64 of the podcast, we kicked things off with a look back at the former first overall pick from 2012, Nail Yakupov, and what we remember about our former friend now that he’s been playing in Russia for the past couple of years. With the trip down memory lane out of the way, we turned back to the current Edmonton Oilers and what they’re going to do if Ryan Nugent-Hopkins’ hand injury is more severe than we initially anticipated. Would an extended stint on the shelf for RNH add more pressure on Ken Holland to find another centreman? In the meantime, is there someone from the Condors that should be called up and given a chance in his absence? From there we looked back at Wednesday’s game against Colorado and the ridiculous sequence that saw the Oilers losing both Alex Chiasson and Adam Larsson in a matter of seconds. We were all in agreement that the hit on Chiasson was a clean one, but the conversation got a lot more heated when discussing the strange decisions made by Steve Kozari and the officiating team. Lastly, we finished up this week’s show with a look at the Edmonton Oilers sitting atop of the Pacific Division as we head into December and whether or not that means this team is truly for real. As always, it was another jam-packed episode of ON Radio and a wonderful massage for your ear feelings as we head into a huge weekend for the boys.
