Happy Wednesday, Internet friends, and welcome to yet another chapter of your ol’ pal Baggedmilk’s adventures in radio. As I do every week, I jumped on the air with the boys on The Locker Room for a quick segment to talk about the Oilers while also offering my takes on anything else that’s going on in the world.
To kick off this week’s appearance, we jumped in with a look at the preseason and how the Oilers have rolled through their first two games against Calgary and Seattle respectively. While I’d say is that it’s true we shouldn’t necessarily get too excited about preseason results, there are definitely some storylines that should get us all fired up, including the chemistry that seems to be building on the first line between Zach Hyman, Connor McDavid, and Jesse Puljujarvi. If those three can keep this going through the rest of the tune-up games and into the regular season then Oilers fans are going to have a lot to be happy about. We also touched on the Josh Archibald situation as it continues to unfold, and how that story could get even more interesting as players like Brandon Perlini and Colton Sceviour do everything they can to try and steal his spot. Needless to say, it can’t be easy for Archibald to watch his spot in the lineup slipping away but that’s the situation we’re in right now and it will be fascinating to see how this thing wraps up.
