Better Lait Than Never: The Year of Nuge, McDavid and Draisaitl milestones, and the NHL trade deadline

1 year ago
We’ve officially passed the midway point of the week and that means I’ve got a fresh episode of Better Lait Than Never to help break down what’s happened so far and what’s yet to come. This week, I’m looking at the Oilers’ struggles in overtime, the Dynamic Duo’s latest milestones, the Year of Nuge, and a whole lot more.
To kick off this week’s episode of Better Lait Than Never, I got started with a look at life in Edmonton, specifically how we’re working through another tundra week here in the capital city with temperatures plummeting through the floor. On the brighter side, however, we’re also inching closer to the Oilersnation 15th Birthday party, and that has me endlessly excited for what is sure to be a wonderful afternoon with the Nation at the Pint Downtown. Getting back to the Oilers, I started off with the good news after Connor McDavid, Leon Draisaitl, and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins all registered milestones in last night’s win over the Philadelphia Flyers, and how it’s so much fun to watch them do their thing together. And since all three of those guys are having such amazing years, it’s almost impossible to understand how they’re still spinning their tires in the standings. That led me to talk about the four-game losing streak that was basically the Oilers’ own fault as they simply could not close out games to save their lives. 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.
