The snow is flying in Edmonton, the Oilers lost their third straight game against the hated Calgary Flames, and that meant a whole lot for the boys to talk about on the Monday episode of Real Life.
Kicking off the podcast, the guys started the podcast by welcoming Dooks from Australia and Brandon from Illinois to the podcast to talk about their respective trips to Edmonton to watch the Oilers. From the way Nation Citizens have stepped up to make their trips feel more special to experiencing Rogers Place for the first time, it was so much fun to hear the boys talk about what it’s been like to visit our city and view it through their eyes.
Getting back to the regularly scheduled programming, the guys tried to figure out what the hell is happening with the Edmonton Oilers and why the team seems to be struggling so immensely right now. For whatever reason, the Oilers are playing as porously as they were early in the season, and the result is giving up goals en masse, and those lapses are costing them games.
Lastly, the guys wrapped up the Monday episode of Real Life with a look at Kris Knoblauch’s line combos and how there are some players who probably deserve more ice time than they’re getting, even though the coach doesn’t seem to agree. As an example, when Dylan Holloway is leading the team in shots against the Flames, would it not have made sense to give him a few extra shifts to see if he could make good on all that hard work?
