A new week means a new episode of Oilersnation Radio and this episode is chock-full of Edmonton Oilers content that you can slip right into your earholes. This week, we cover the Valentin Zykov waiver claim, whether the Strome for Spooner trade is worse than Eberle for Strome, the "retro" jersey debut, and another look at the Milan Lucic goal bet.
To start off this week's show, we jump right into things with a look at the newest Edmonton Oiler, Valentin Zykov. With another right-handed winger in the mix (he plays on the left side), we try to figure out where he will slot in and how this will affect the current line combinations. Zykov has had some scoring touch at the AHL level but has yet to have that translate in the big show, so we'll have to wait and see how things shake out. Next up, we look at Dusty's Hot Takes article for November, specifically the part where he talks about the Strome for Spooner trade being worse than the initial Eberle for Strome. True? We debate. As the podcast wound down, we took a look at the Oilers' "retro" jerseys that made their season debut last night, and also the award-winning investigation that happened last night where a Kings fan show up wearing an LA McDavid jersey. Lastly, we revisited the Milan Lucic goal bet to have a look at how everyone is doing, and come up with some adjustments to the bet to make things more interesting.
