Happy Wednesday, Internet friends, and welcome to yet another chapter of your ol’ pal Baggedmilk’s adventures in radio. As I do every week, I jumped on the air with the boys on The Locker Room for a quick segment to talk about the Oilers while also offering my takes on anything else that’s going on in the world.
To kick off this week’s segment, we jumped in with a look at Connor McDavid’s heater and whether or not he can keep this going. On his current pace, McDavid would be the first player since Wayne Gretzky to pass 200 points in an NHL season so we wondered out loud if that is actually possible in today’s NHL. I mean, we all know that Connor McDavid is a freak but 200 points? Personally, I won’t ever expect him to hit such a lofty mark but I wouldn’t bet against him either. Next up, we looked at Zach Hyman’s fit with the Oilers after he’s gotten off to a very quick start in his first season with his new club. And not only is he fitting in well but his play and personality have also caused some to compare him to former Oiler, Ryan Smyth, so we spent a few minutes comparing both guys to see if there’s actually anything there. Needless to say, it’s been a fun start to the season for Oilers fans as we all cannot wait for tonight’s game against the Flyers.
