Better Lait Than Never: How concerned are we with the Oilers tough start and scoring woes?
By baggedmilk5 months ago
A fresh episode of Better Lait Than Never to go along with the same ol’ hockey team? New podcast, same bad habits? Let’s talk about it.
I’m not going to lie to you, I did not expect to be walking folks away from the panic button only three games into this new NHL season but that’s exactly where we’re at for a small portion of people. Does it make sense to freak out this early? I know expectations are high, but we’ve only played three games so far. Sticking with what’s happened so far, I walked through Dylan Holloway’s first three NHL games and how the start of his career hasn’t exactly gone as planned. Outside of getting blown out by Ilya Lyubushkin last night against Buffalo, Holloway has struggled a little bit so far but I don’t think that’s anything we shouldn’t have expected. I also looked at some of the other roster moves the team has made over the last week, including the recall of Markus Niemelainen who I personally have a tonne of time for as a shutdown defender. He may not be ready for the big minutes/assignments just yet, but I don’t think it’ll be long either. Pivoting to fashion, the NHL released everyone’s new reverse retro jerseys today so I rang through who did a good job and who failed miserably. 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 in your life.
