Better Lait Than Never: Connor McDavid is back and everyone else should be worried about it
By baggedmilk2 months ago
It’s so much more exciting to be recording Better Lait Than Never after a run of wins as opposed to the Oilers getting shelled all the time. Needless to say, today’s episode of the podcast was a little bit more uplifting than they have been over the last few weeks.
Kicking off this week’s episode of BLTN, I jumped in with some Oilers news after the team beat the Vegas Golden Knights for their third consecutive win. That’s not to say it was the prettiest win you’ll ever see — Gord knows the Oilers tried to make it as tough as possible — but the good news is that they still found a way to get the job done even when the going got tough. A big part of that win was the performance by Connor McDavid, who put up another three-point period as he continues to vault his way up the NHL scoring leaderboard. Another guy who found a way to chip in last night was Sam Gagner. Gagner has already put three goals on the board despite playing in only nine games, which is fantastic production from the bottom six at a time when we desperately need some goals. And since we were talking about needing some goals, there are no two players on the Oilers’ roster that need one more than Ryan McLeod, Connor Brown, and Warren Foegele. Those three guys are getting things done in terms of possession metrics and pushing the play, but the finish has yet to follow in any real capacity. Should we be concerned yet? Lastly, I wrapped up the episode with another Righteous Sack Beating and a fresh round of voicemails to get your take on everything that’s been happening since last week’s episode. Oh, and subscribe to my YouTube channel.
