Better Lait Than Never: Connor McDavid hits 60 goals, love for Mattias Ekholm, and Jeremy Coupal

1 year ago
It’s Wednesday afternoon and that means I’ve got a fresh episode of Better Lait Than Never all set and ready to guide you through the back half of your week. In this week’s episode, I’m looking at McDavid scoring 60, the Oilers’ current winning streak, Zach Hyman’s ridiculous run of goals called back, gushed about Mattias Ekholm, and a whole lot more.
To kick off the podcast, I got started with a thank you to everyone that attended the Oilersnation 15th birthday party this past weekend at the Pint Downtown. Not only was it a fantastic way to spend a Saturday, but the support we got from all of you is something that I won’t soon forget. It was the kind of day that made us all so incredibly happy because of the incredible support, and I couldn’t possibly think of a better group to spend that time with. Getting back to the Oilers, how could I not touch on Connor McDavid hitting the 60-goal mark in last night’s win over the Arizona Coyotes? No matter how you slice it, McDavid is the best player on earth and it’s not particularly close. Next up, the team announced that it had signed college free agent, Carl Berglund, to a two-year entry-level deal early today so I tried to figure out what the hell we’ve got here in our new friend. From there, I looked at the upcoming schedule and how there are some big games on deck for the Oilers if they have any hopes of climbing into one of the top-two positions in the Pacific Division. And since we’re in a spot in the season where news really slows down, I spent the rest of the segment digging into what’s been happening with the group over the last week while also checking in on some old friends that recently left town. Lastly, I wrapped up the episode with another round of voicemails to get your take on what’s been going on over the last week.
