Another Friday has landed on your calendar and that means the boys are back with a brand new episode of Oilersnation Radio to help make sense of all things Edmonton Oilers. On today’s podcast, we’re talking about Jesse Puljujarvi, the Joel Edmundson rumours, and a whole lot more.
Kicking off today’s podcast, we got started with a conversation about Joel Edmundson and how the Oilers have been linked to his name over the last couple of weeks since everyone in the league knows we need defence. While all of us agreed that Edmundson would probably help the team, the current cost of acquisition + the cap hit makes this a tough deal to make without having some salary going back the other way. If the Edmundson trade doesn’t work, who else could make sense? Sticking with the rumour mill, we looked at the latest Jesse Puljujarvi drama and whether or not the big Finn will still be around for much longer. Changing gears, we looked at Klim Kostin’s emergence as a fan favourite after being acquired for Dmitri Samorukov in the offseason, and how his style of play is exactly what this city cheers for. Lastly, we wrapped up the podcast with another round of Ask the Idiots and Hot and Cold performers to make sense of the last few days.
