Better Lait Than Never: Erik Karlsson, Patrick Kane, and the finest Silly Szn rumours you could hope for

7 months ago
It’s Wednesday afternoon and that can only mean one thing — a brand new episode of Better Lait Than Never, your mom’s favourite podcast. This week, I’m talking about all of the silly szn rumours that are surrounding the Oilers right now, the fact that Jesse Puljujarvi is still here, the Super Bowl, and a whole lot more.
To kick off this week’s podcast, I got started with a quick look at the Oilersnation 15th Anniversary party that will be happening on March 18th at the Pint Downtown. As much fun as we’ve had over the years, it’s crazy to think that the Nation is already turning 15 seeing as it doesn’t really feel like we’ve been doing this that long. Then again, when I walk into Nation HQ these days, it’s wild to see how many people actually work for this company now. Moving the podcast back to sports, I spent the next 10 minutes or so talking about all of the rumours surrounding the Oilers right now, including their reported interest in Erik Karlsson. Even though having Karlsson in blue and orange seems like a whole lot of fun, I have a hard time believing a deal like this will actually happen, ya know? Same goes for the thought of bringing in Patrick Kane to take our top-end offence from a Ferrari to a fighter jet. I also touched on the oddness of the Kailer Yamamoto situation as we all expected him to be activated from the LTIR yesterday only to have the deadline come and go without activity. Is there a trade in the works? As Tom Petty once said, “the waiting is the hardest part.” 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.
