Better Lait Than Never: The Stanley Cup Finals are finally over, now bring on the trades

10 months ago
It’s Wednesday afternoon, it’s a rainy day in the city, and the Stanley Cup Finals are finally over, which means I’ve got a whole lot to talk about on the brand new episode of Better Lait Than Never.
To kick off this week’s podcast, I got started with a look at the news that shocked so many of us this morning after Bell Media announced that they had closed six stations across the country, including TSN 1260 here in Edmonton. While there’s little doubt that the business world is a cold one, seeing people you admire losing their jobs so suddenly was a jarring way to start the day. On a brighter note, the Stanley Cup Finals wrapped up last night with the Golden Knights claiming their first championship in franchise history, and while some folks were focused on that, I was just happy that the postseason is over. As I mentioned last week, the only things I care about at this time of year with the Oilers out of the running are the rumours and trades that can happen now that the season is officially over.
Speaking of rumours, I looked at the last name circling Edmonton these days after a Philly writer linked Travis Konecny to the Oilers as a potential solution on the wing. According to Anthony Di Marco, the Oilers have interest in the 26-year-old winger and I completely get it after he put up 31 goals and 61 points through 60 games played on a horrible Flyers team. That said, landing a guy like that would be a very tall order for Ken Holland to pull off given the Oilers’ cap situation so I guess we’ll just have to wait and see how things play out. To wrap up the news, I spent the next few minutes running through some general NHL stories, including a look at some of the ridiculous injuries players were competing through as the playoffs wore on. Lastly, I wrapped up the episode with another Righteous Sack Beating and a fresh round of voicemails to get your take on what’s been going on over the last week. Oh, and subscribe to my YouTube channel.
