Better Lait Than Never: All hail Jeff Jackson, waiting on Evan Bouchard, and the Dynamic Duo

8 months ago
It’s Wednesday and that means I’ve got a new episode of Better Lait Than Never. Are you excited? Of course you are.
Kicking off this week’s podcast, I got started with a look back at the long weekend. On Friday night, I made my way to Rogers Place to check out Alexisonfire and Avenged Sevenfold for what ended up being one of my favourite shows that I’ve ever attended. From start to finish, that concert made for one of the best nights ever and I had to talk about it. I also had to talk about my boy Tyler’s tweet from last night where he said he would be going to the Elks game while completely ignoring the fact that I tried to invite myself only to get shot down. It just hurts, ya know?
Turning the show toward the Oilers, I got started on the Jeff Jackson news after Connor McDavid’s agent was named CEO of Hockey Operations, effectively replacing Bob Nicholson at the top of the org chart. I also looked at the Brandon Sutter PTO that was announced yesterday and how I love bringing guys in on tryouts to add competition to the bottom portions of the lineup. Gone are the days of gifting people spots on the roster, and I can only hope that more names are added to the PTO list as the off-season rolls on. And while the team’s housekeeping efforts continue, we’re still waiting on news about Evan Bouchard who is one of the last pieces of the puzzle to get done. In down-the-line extension news, Frank Seravalli had another beautiful comment on the DFO Rundown about Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl sticking around that I absolutely had to share because it’s just so wonderful to hear. Lastly, I wrapped up the episode with a fresh round of voicemails to get your take on the BLTN presidential election and what’s been going on over the last week. Oh, and subscribe to my YouTube channel.
