It’s Friday afternoon and that means a brand new episode of
Oilersnation Radio is wrapped up, edited into a masterpiece, and
here to get you set for the weekend. This week, we looked back at
the amazing life of Joey Moss and what he meant to the Edmonton
sports scene and the community at large.
To start off today’s podcast, we jumped in with a look at what
the Oilers might do to honour the late Joey Moss after news broke
of his passing earlier in the week. Seeing as Joey meant so much to
so many people, there is little doubt that the team will do
something amazing to honour him, and we tried to help out by
batting around a few ideas about what types of tributes may happen.
From there, we got back to hockey and discussed the AHL
announcement that February 5th would be their target date for the
new season to get started, and wondered what that meant for the
NHL's next campaign. Seeing as there are plenty of questions that
remain unanswered, we discussed whether or not those unknowns could
result in the start of the season being pushed back. Sticking with
hockey, we celebrated Leon Draisaitl's 25th birthday by discussing
how good he can be and how far away from his ceiling he actually
is. Is it possible that the reigning MVP can actually get better?
Lastly, we looked at Northlands Coliseum which is slated to be
demolished sooner than later and shared some of our favourite
memories from the old barn.
