It’s Friday afternoon and that means a brand new episode of Oilersnation Radio is wrapped up, edited into a masterpiece, and set to get you ready for the weekend. This week, we looked at Leon Draisaitl’s trophy wins, trading back at the NHL Draft, listener questions, and a lot more.
To kick off today’s podcast, we jumped in with the Sherwood Ford Giant Question of the Week which had to do with whether or not we would feel comfortable with the Oilers trading down at the draft. Would it make sense to slide back a few spots if that meant picking up another pick in the second or third rounds? From there, we looked back at Leon Draisaitl picking up both the Ted Lindsay Award and the Hart Trophy this past week, and some of the hilarious overreactions that came along with the announcement. From there, we looked at the upcoming NHL season after Gary Bettman advised that the 2020-21 schedule will likely start in late December or early January. Is that a surprise given the way the world is going right now? Next up, we answered some listener questions that came in via our Twitter account to offer up some free wisdom on all things Edmonton Oilers. Lastly, we wrapped up the podcast with our Hot and Cold Performers to highlight some of the best and worst moments from the past seven days.
