You’re more than halfway through your week and that can only mean one thing — a brand new episode of Better Lait Than Never to welcome into your earholes and enjoy. This week I’m looking at Ken Holland’s pre-camp availability, the decision to give Jake Virtanen a PTO, Evander Kane’s settlement, and a whole lot more.

To kick off this week’s episode of BLTN, I jumped in with the news that most Oilers fans were talking about this week, which is obviously the club’s decision to bring Jake Virtanen in on a PTO. As much as I had been trying to avoid this story over the past couple of weeks because there was nothing going on outside of rumours, the guy is now at Oilers camp and that means it was time to give my take. From there, I looked at some of Ken Holland’s pre-camp comments from this morning’s pressure as he covered all kinds of ground, including Ryan McLeod’s contract status, Jesse Puljujarvi’s frustrations, Philip Broberg‘s progression, and more. Even though I never expect Ken Holland to say a whole lot in his media availabilities, I did find some interesting tidbits within his presser that I wanted to share. Lastly, I wrapped up the episode with another round of voicemails to get your take on what’s been going on over the last week in your life.
