Baggedmilk on #theLOCKERROOM: Darnell Nurse quotes and Ryan McLeod inches toward arbitration

10 months ago
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 segment, we got started by educating me on the Jimmy bit they always run when he’s on vacation that he’s down in Taber for Corn Fest even though that’s not actually happening until August. My favourite part of the bit is that it’s so dumb but still manages to annoy people anyway. Speaking of annoying people, we then dove into the Darnell Nurse quotes that came out this week where he feels as though he’s blamed for everything from goals against to the traffic on Stony Plain Road. From my perspective, the hate for Darnell Nurse based on his contract reminds me a lot of what used to happen when Shawn Horcoff was around. While there’s no doubt that Nurse can be better than he was at points last season, I do think some of the discourse around him gets way out of hand. Lastly, we wrapped up this week’s segment with a look at the Ryan McLeod contract and whether or not I think the team will be able to get it done before his arbitration date on August 4th.
