Better Lait Than Never: The early exit and what comes next for the Edmonton Oilers

1 year ago
It’s Wednesday afternoon and that means a brand new episode of Better Lait Than Never is posted and ready to recap the last week in Edmonton Oilers land with a healthy dose of randomness mixed in for good measure.
To kick off this week’s podcast, I got started with a farewell to the playoffs after the Oilers got knocked out by Vegas in Game 6 of their second round series. While many of us were hopeful for another deep run, the reality is that the Oilers never did quite play up to their own standards against the Golden Knights, and that’s simply not good enough when facing an opponent as strong as they were. That led me to dig into some of the exit interviews quotes that have popped up over the last 24 hours, including some notes from Connor McDavid, Leon Draisaitl, Ken Holland, and Jay Woodcroft. Even though I never expect to actually learn much during these exit interviews, I will say that it was nice to see so many of the Oilers feeling the exact same way we all do. Sticking with the vein of being disappointed, this week’s Righteous Sack Beating dove into the wild overreactions we saw in the fanbase after the Oilers lost. As much as I love the passion we all share for this team and its players, the insane arguments we get in when things go wrong can be a little much. 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.
