It’s Friday afternoon and that can only mean that we’ve got a fresh episode of Oilersnation Radio to help you finish off your week and make sense of all things Edmonton Oilers. On this week’s show, we talked about what's been happening in the preseason, fans being back at Rogers Place, Ask the Idiots, and a whole lot more.
To kick off this week's podcast we jumped in with a look at the preseason and specifically our biggest takeaways from the preseason so far. Whether it's the first line developing chemistry to the depth we now have in the organization to Brendan Perlini shooting the lights out, there are a lot of interesting stories to watch as we progress through the tune-up season and we tried to get to everything that came to mind. Getting back to the first line, we spent some time talking about whether or not the McDavid-Hyman-Puljujarvi line could develop into one of the league's best. Changing gears, Duncan Keith made his preseason debut this morning and caused a few waves with his takes on vaccination so we tried to make sense of the quotes and whether we're all making a bigger deal of it than we should be. With the vaccine talk out of the way, we got back into the fun stuff as both Tyler and Rick were in attendance for Tuesday's game against the Kraken, and it was fun to hear them describe what it was like to be back at Rogers Place for the first time in nearly two years. The boys both talked about how great the atmosphere was at the arena and it got me excited about when I'll be able to go back and just having fans in the stands in general. Lastly, we wrapped up the podcast with a little bit of betting talk after our announcement earlier in the week that The Nation Network has teamed up with PointsBet Canada for a new partnership that will launch all kinds of new content for the upcoming season.
