Better Lait Than Never: Connor McDavid the apple tree, Oilers trade rumours, and so many sports docs

1 month ago
The best part of your Wednesday has finally arrived, as the new episode of Better Lait Than Never is prepped, edited, and ready for your ear holes. This week, I’m talking about the slog that is this latest stretch of Oilers hockey and what it’s going to take to get out of this little funk they’re in.
Kicking off this week’s BLTN, I started with a random collection of topics, including the hellish flu I was battling over the weekend and how it caused me to lose eight pounds in only three days. On the bright side, having the flu gave me an excuse to sit around and watch TV all day while my summer diet plan got a nice jump start without having to set foot in a gym. I also previewed the special episode of BLTN that will be happening with Dooks tomorrow down at Nation HQ and how I couldn’t be more excited for this episode to finally happen.
Turning the podcast back to the Oilers, I started with a look at the team’s three-game losing streak and how it was so massive that they were able to snap the skid against the LA Kings. Obviously, no one wants to lose games, but having the Oilers find a way to get the job done against a Kings team that’s been surging since their coaching change was a massive win in more ways than one.
Looking ahead to next week’s trade deadline, I ran through some of the latest rumours surrounding the Oilers and offered my take on whether or not I think the mentioned names would help. Most notably, Frank Seravalli mentioned this morning on Daily Faceoff Live that the Oilers could emerge as legitimate contenders to land Pavel Buchnevich from the St. Louis Blues, and if a trade like that happened, it could end up being a game changer for this team down the stretch.
