It’s Friday afternoon and that means a brand new episode of Oilersnation Radio has been wrapped up, edited into a masterpiece, and ready to stimulate your ear feelings as you head into the weekend. This week, we looked at early line combinations, outdoor games, ghosts of Oilers past, and a whole lot more.
To kick off this week’s podcast, we jumped in with a look at the Giant Question of the week which revolved around the top-six for the upcoming season. With that in mind, we spent a few minutes discussing a way-too-early look at what the line combinations might look like when the season is finally able to get underway. Should Dave Tippett move Nugent-Hopkins up with McDavid? Should he keep the NuDraMoto line together? Will he? Needless to say, all four of us thought that the Oilers have more options available than they have in the past, which makes the idea of mixing up the combinations a lot more interesting for this season. From there, we looked at the report from Elliotte Friedman that a handful of teams are exploring the possibility of outdoor games, so we spent a few minutes talking about whether or not it’s even possible. Next up, I recently discovered that former friend, Teemu Hartikainen, is leading the KHL in points but was just never able to make it with the Oilers, spawning a conversation about past guys that we had hoped would be The Answer.
