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 back at the Oilers’ playoff run and how much fun it was for fans and the city to see them go on this run despite not being able to get any further than the four games against Colorado. While getting swept in the Western Conference Finals was certainly a bummer, the way I’m looking at it is that the Oilers were playing hockey in June and that’s something none of us would have expected when they were losing all of those games back in December and January. From there, we looked at the Evander Kane situation and whether or not he’ll be back in an Oilers uniform next year, and while I absolutely think they will try, the season he just had will probably price him out of what Edmonton will be able to afford. Lastly, we wrapped up this week’s segment with a look at Mike Smith and the rumblings that came out yesterday that he may be considering retirement.
