Oilersnation Radio: Do the Oilers need more team toughness?

1 year ago
Another Friday has landed on your calendar and that means the boys are back with a brand new episode of Oilersnation Radio to help make sense of all things Edmonton Oilers. On today’s podcast, we’re talkin’ about the new line combinations, reverse retros, scoring woes, and a whole lot more.
Kicking off today’s podcast, we got started with a conversation about Mattias Janmark getting bumped up to the first line alongside Connor McDavid as Jay Woodcroft continues to look for the ideal trios. Does it make sense to put Janmark up with Connor or should Woodcroft have left things alone and let the boys try and work through it? From there, we looked at Wednesday’s loss to the Los Angeles Kings and how it was incredibly frustrating to see the Oilers look so ineffective on the attack without being able to adjust. We also looked at the Alex Edler knee on Connor McDavid and how the linesman prevented Darnell Nurse from handling the situation right there in the moment. Next up, we previewed tomorrow’s game against the Vegas Golden Knights and tried to guess which Edmonton Oilers team will show up. Will we get the team that looks like world beaters or the one that struggles to gain zone entry? Lastly, we wrapped up the Friday episode of Oilersnation Radio with another round of Ask the Idiots and Hot and Cold performers.
