Good morning, dearest Internet strangers, and welcome to a brand new 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.
Kicking off this week’s segment, we jumped into the obvious story of the week which was having all of the Oilers games in Montreal postponed as a result of COVID. According to reports, two Canadiens players were moved to the COVID protocol list and that triggered the NHL to postpone the three games from this week until a later date. Now, with only two players added to the list, I think it’s fair to wonder why the Habs didn’t just dip into their taxi squad, but there’s clearly more to the story here. Changing gears, we also spoke about the news that broke this morning that NHL referee, Tim Peel, was fired by the league after he was caught on a hot mic talking about makeup calls. The funny thing about this is that anyone with a working brainstem knows that there are makeup calls in the NHL, but the fact that a ref got caught talking about it is hilarious.
