Oilersnation Radio


Sep 18, 2020

It’s Friday afternoon and that means a brand new episode of Oilersnation Radio is wrapped up, edited to perfection, and set to get you ready for the weekend.

To kick off this week's podcast, we jumped in with a look at the offseason and what it will take for Ken Holland to have a successful summer fall. On the flip side, what would count as a disastrous offseason for the Oilers? We looked at both sides of the coin and took a few swings at what each scenario might look like. Sticking with goaltending, we looked at some of the rumours that are circling the Twitterverse these days and whether or not moving the first-round pick makes sense if it means finding the right fit at that position. What about drafting a goaltender like Askarov with the 14th overall pick? Changing to the forward group, we looked at the Andreas Athanasiou situation and what are the Oilers' options are when it comes to the recently acquired winger. Is there any scenario that makes sense for the Oilers to qualify him at $3 million, or is it more likely that the team and player part ways because of circumstance? Lastly, we wrapped up the podcast by offering our Stanley Cup predictions as the Dallas Stars and Tampa Bay Lightning are getting set to face off for the COVID Cup.
