It’s Friday afternoon and that means a brand new episode of Oilersnation Radio is wrapped up, edited into a masterpiece, and here to get you set for the weekend. This week, we looked back at the amazing life of Joey Moss and what he meant to the Edmonton sports scene and the community at large.
To start off today’s podcast, we jumped in with a look at what the Oilers might do to honour the late Joey Moss after news broke of his passing earlier in the week. Seeing as Joey meant so much to so many people, there is little doubt that the team will do something amazing to honour him, and we tried to help out by batting around a few ideas about what types of tributes may happen. From there, we got back to hockey and discussed the AHL announcement that February 5th would be their target date for the new season to get started, and wondered what that meant for the NHL’s next campaign. Seeing as there are plenty of questions that remain unanswered, we discussed whether or not those unknowns could result in the start of the season being pushed back. Sticking with hockey, we celebrated Leon Draisaitl’s 25th birthday by discussing how good he can be and how far away from his ceiling he actually is. Is it possible that the reigning MVP can actually get better? Lastly, we looked at Northlands Coliseum which is slated to be demolished sooner than later and shared some of our favourite memories from the old barn.
