Baggedmilk on #theLOCKERROOM: Connor, Leon, and the NHL Trade Deadline

Good morning, dear Internet friends, and welcome to a fresh edition of your ol’ pal Baggedmilk’s adventures in local Edmonton radio. As I do every Wednesday, I jumped on with the boys on The Locker Room for a few minutes to talk about Oilers, what’s been going on around the NHL, and try to make sense of this crazy life we’re living.

To kick off this week’s appearance, we jumped in with a look at the Edmonton Oilers’ current homestand against the Senators, including the fact that Dave Tippett reunited Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl one the same line for the first time since last season. The question then becomes, how long are these two guys going to stick together and is it for the best of the team? Personally, I think they’re a lot of fun to watch but it may not be the best longterm solution either. From there, we looked at some of the rumours circulating on Twitter these days and whether or not the Oilers have a serious chance of getting in on Jake Debrusk or Eric Staal. we took an early look at the NHL Speaking of trades, the deadline is scheduled for April 12th this year, but with COVID adding an extra wrinkle of a two-week quarantine for any player that comes in from the USA, it will be interesting to see how much (if anything) Ken Holland gets done in the weeks leading up to that final trade buzzer.
