It’s Friday afternoon and that means a brand new episode of Oilersnation Radio is here to help you finish off your week with an hour of all things Edmonton Oilers. On this week’s show, we looked at the Oilers’ run of injuries, more magic from Connor McDavid, another round of Ask the Idiots, and a whole lot more.
His ability to be calm and collected comes from the investment he puts into the small details. He picked his spot 4-5 seconds ahead of the play,4-5 seconds to calculate and create in hockey is a massive window. He is a special player. https://t.co/LxVLS3tkqt pic.twitter.com/xBjOaeHfAj

To kick off this week’s podcast, we got started with a look at Connor McDavid’s ridiculous goals against the Rangers and then the Jets and tried to decide which was nicer. Whether you liked the one against the Rangers from two week’s ago or last night’s carbon copy against the Jets, Connor McDavid seems to be bringing his best at the most crucial moments in these hockey games and none of us could contain our excitement to walk through his latest magic moments. And from where we podcast, there is no better pairing for some McDavid magic than the accompanying call by Jack Michaels, which sent us down another rabbit hole for why he needs to be calling playoffs games. From there, we looked at the injury bug that’s running through the Oilers’ lineup right now as all three of Derek Ryan, Darnell Nurse, and Slater Koekkoek suffered injuries in the two-game mini-series against Winnipeg. Seeing as there are now holes in the lineup, the Oilers recalled both Philip Broberg and William Lagesson this morning, and we tried to figure out where they’d be slotted in and what that means in terms of continuing this early season heater. Lastly, we wrapped up this week’s podcast with another round of Ask the Idiots and Hot and Cold performers to recap what was a very busy week here in Edmonton.
