Better Lait Than Never: Is Jeff Jackson sure he doesn’t want to be the Oilers’ GM?

13 days ago
I’m still trying to wrap my head around how much the Oilers got done in free agency, and it has me excited to see what else is yet to come. Either way, I don’t know that I’ve seen Oilers social media as united as it’s been over the last few days, and that positivity is incredibly nice to see only a week after the team fell short in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final.
I started off this week’s Better Late Than Never by confessing how relieved I am that the NHL season is done and that there’s finally some time to recharge. That’s not to say that I’m complaining about the Oilers’ Cup run — far from it — just that it was a lot of punishment on the body. Without knowing for sure, I’d guess that I probably put on 15-20 pounds over the last couple of months, and now the goal will be to see how quickly I can shed the weight.
Turning the podcast back to the Oilers, how could I not start with a tribute to Jeff Jackson? Even though Jackson told everyone he is not interested in being Edmonton’s general manager long-term, the guy has done a fantastic job in the role so far. Given everything he was able to accomplish on the first day of NHL free agency, many Oilers fans are wondering what it will take for Jackson to remove the interim tag off his title and keep doing what he’s been doing. Of course, it’s easy to say that when we have no idea
Lastly, I wrapped up this week’s show with a guest RSB about the Oilers being tied to Stan Bowman and capped off the pod with another round of voicemails ranging from praising Jeff Jackson’s free agency and everything in between. Once again, this podcast really is one of my favourite parts of the week, and I’m so very grateful for the levels of participation by the wonderful BLTN community that keeps moving.
