Oilersnation Radio Episode 65 – Playing Down to the Competition and Trading Evan Bouchard

Welcome, friends, to a brand new episode of Oilersnation Radio. This week, we looked back at the horrible loss to the Ottawa Senators from Wednesday night, previewed tonight’s game against the Los Angeles Kings, discussed the idea of trading Evan Bouchard, and a whole lot more.

To start off this week’s podcast, how could we not congratulate Tyler Yaremchuk on the news that he’s getting engaged that broke on Tuesday’s Real Life Podcast!? With our little man growing up, I felt like we needed to take a few minutes to recognize him for the fine young man he’s turning into. Congrats, Tyler. We couldn’t be more proud of you. Back to the Oilers, we jumped right in with a look at the Sherwood Ford Giant question of the day (shown above) and the boys gave their takes on how likely the Oilers are to make the playoffs. From there, we moved into a strange take from Jay who was sitting in for Rick as he thinks that the Oilers would be best served to move Evan Bouchard while his value is high. Naturally, the boys all jumped in to try and talk Jay off the bizarre ledge he’s on but he just wasn’t having it. I felt like we had to walk through Wednesday night’s disaster against the Ottawa Senators and try to figure out why the team keeps playing down to their competition. With the Kings in town tonight, the boys have a chance to right Wednesday’s wrong, but they’re, obviously, going to have to be a whole lot better if they plan to make that happen. As always, it was another big episode of Oilersnation Radio and one that you’ll want to sink in your earholes as soon as humanly possible.
