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’ defence taking yet another hit, Stuart Skinner’s emergence between the pipes, another round of Ask the Idiots, and a whole lot more.
To kick off this week’s podcast, we got started with a swing at how many goals Leon Draisaitl will have beside his name when the season comes to an end. I don’t think any of us expect that he’ll maintain this goal per game pace, but it was fun to hear everyone’s guesses on where they think he’ll end up by the time April rolls around. Sticking with Draisaitl, we dug into the clip of Trevor Zegras from Spittin Chiclets where the rookie talked about challenging Draisaitl to a bet on the opening faceoff and the former MVP chirping him in a way that only he can. From there we moved into the Oilers’ injury woes that have come up over the last week, and how that’s provided a huge opportunity for some of the younger guys that maybe we weren’t expecting to arrive quite so quickly. We also looked ahead at tomorrow’s matchup against the Vegas Golden Knights and how that is a massive game against a divisional team that has really started to turn things around after a slow start to their season. Lastly, we wrapped up this week’s podcast with another round of Ask the Idiots and Hot and Cold performers to recap what was yet another very busy week here in Edmonton.
