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 last night’s loss to the Jets and specifically how another dreadful start put the Oilers in a hole too deep to find their way out. Needless to say, when you give up a goal on the first shot of the game and then another three before even getting started, it’s going to be nearly impossible to win in this league and that’s exactly what happened. I don’t know why the Oilers are struggling with their starts so much these days, but it’s a problem that Dave Tippett and his staff need to sort out sooner than later because it’s a trend that cannot continue. From there, we looked at Connor McDavid not getting anything called in his favour, which has led some fans to say he’s a whiner. Seeing as I haven’t missed any games in McDavid’s career to this point, the fact that anyone could say he’s whining tells me that they just don’t watch him play very often. In his defence, however, I don’t know how many hacks, slashes, and holds the guy is supposed to play through before being allowed to say something, ya know?
