Oilersnation Radio Episode 74 – Trade Deadline Preview

Another Friday is upon us and that means a brand new episode of Oilersnation Radio is here to get you set for the weekend. This week, we talked a lot about the upcoming trade deadline and whether we think Ken Holland is going to weave the magic required to upgrade the roster.

To kick off this week’s podcast, we started with a look at newly extended defenceman, Darnell Nurse, as the former 7th overall pick has taken some heat around here lately for his missteps as he tries to fill in the for the injured Oscar Klefbom. Can we really fault the guy for filling in as best as he can even though that probably means he’s fighting above his weight class? Next up, we broke down Ken Holland’s press conference from yesterday to try and figure out what his approach will be for Monday’s trade deadline. Considering the price that some teams are paying for rentals so far, does it even make sense to be too aggressive in trying to upgrade the team? We also touched on former friend, Jesse Puljujarvi, after Holland said that he hasn’t been shopping the winger nor has anyone really be calling about him, so I asked the boys whether or not anyone thought there might be a chance that he comes back. Lastly, we looked at the upcoming schedule and took a few swings on how the Oilers are going to fare, starting with tonight’s matchup against a Minnesota Wild team that has run the show so far in the season series.
