It’s Friday afternoon and that means we just wrapped up a fresh episode of Oilersnation Radio to help you get through what’s left of your week with a full hour of all things Edmonton Oilers. On today’s show, we looked at Jesse Puljujarvi’s new deal, the Matthew Tkachuk trade, and a whole lot more.
To kick off this week’s podcast, we got started with a conversation about the Pacific Division and specifically how everyone else has been doing through these first few weeks of free agency. Have any of these teams improved to the point of being the Oilers’ biggest threat in the division? From there, we looked at the monster trade the Calgary Flames made last Friday after they sent Matthew Tkachuk to the Florida Panthers in exchange for Jonathan Huberdeau, Mackenzie Weegar, a prospect, and a 1st round pick. Will the Flames be able to hold onto both guys? Did they fleece the Panthers like so many people are saying? Getting back to the Oilers, we looked at the Jesse Puljujarvi extension that came down last week and what we expect from the former 4th-round pick in 2016. Can Pulujujarvi build upon the strong start he had before suffering a few injuries down the stretch? We also spoke about the defence a little bit and whether or not the existing group will be good enough for the Oilers to take a step forward. Lastly, we wrapped up the podcast with another round of Ask the Idiots and Hot and Cold performers to recap the week that was.
