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.
Kicking off this week’s appearance, we jumped in with a chat about the last couple of games the Oilers have played against the Colorado Avalanche and Dallas Stars and whether there are any positive lessons to be taken from those outings. Even though they lost both nights, I do absolutely think that there are silver linings to take away from both games but that doesn’t make last night’s third-period collapse to the Stars any easier to swallow. From there, we looked ahead at Brett Kulak and Derick Brassard joining the team as early as tomorrow, and I offered my takes on what each guy may bring to the lineup on a nightly basis. For me, the biggest question is where Brassard fits into the roster and how he’ll be used by the coaching staff. Lastly, we wrapped up this week’s appearance with a quick chat about our trip to Calgary that’s happening on Saturday. Want to join us in Calgary? Sign up for your spot on the bus right here!
