Another Friday is upon us and that means a brand new episode of Oilersnation Radio is here and set to lead you into the weekend. This week, we look back at last weekend’s BOA, a big win over the Predators on Tuesday night, and what to expect as the Oilers head into their bye week.
It’s Friday here in Nation country and that means Dustin Nielson was live on your TV screen, computer monitor, cell phone or reflecting pool (we see you, wizards and witches). Make sure to follow along with your friendly neighborhood @OilersnationHQ on twitter to always know within seconds of when Dustin will be live.

We are close to seven days removed from the WHL Trade Deadline and as expected, Oil Kings GM Kirt Hill stayed quiet.

Welcome to Oilersnation’s Deadline Targets series. Over the next few weeks heading into the trade deadline, I’ll be walking through the teams expected to unload at the deadline and the players who could be fits on the Oilers for their playoff push. Today, we have the Toronto Maple Leafs.
