The weekend is nearly here and that means we’re back with a brand new episode of Oilersnation Radio to make sense of everything that’s happened here in Edmonton and around the NHL over the last seven days. On this week’s show, we looked at the Ryan Nugent-Hopkins contract extension, McDavid adds to his trophy case, and a whole lot more.
We Kept Nuge Forever.

Kicking off the podcast, we jumped in with a look at the Ryan Nugent-Hopkins contract extension and what it meant for both the organization and the fanbase. From the term to the dollars to where he slots in the lineup, we broke down every aspect of this new contract while also looking at some of the reactions that came out of the fanbase after the news broke. We also talked about what it means to have Nugent-Hopkins commit to the Oilers when so many free agents before him did not follow suit. From there, we spoke a little bit about the expansion draft and what the Oilers might be able to do with the open spaces they have on their protection list. Would it make sense to look at a team like the Bruins that may need help with their expansion list? What about the New York Islanders? We also touched on Connor McDavid adding to his trophy case after winning both the Hart Trophy and Ted Lindsay Award last night, sweeping the awards for the league’s best player handily. Lastly, we wrapped up this week’s podcast with a look at Oscar Klefbom’s future after Ken Holland announced that he would be talking to the injured defender in the coming days as he makes his final preparations for the Seattle expansion draft.
