Game 5 is on deck and the Oilers have a massive opportunity here

Ep. 383

It's Friday afternoon, and that means a fresh episode of Oilersnation Radio has been edited and ready to massage your ear holes.


We started the Friday episode of ONR with a delicious debate about what we expect the Oilers to do in Game 5 to avoid the same result they got in the same situation in Vancouver. Given that the team played as poorly as they did in this exact spot in the last round, there are plenty of lessons the Oilers may have learned, and we tried to outline as many of those spots as possible.


Changing gears, we looked at Kris Knoblauch's lineup decisions this past week ahead of Game 4. A lot of Oilers fans questioned putting Corey Perry and Philip Broberg into that game, but it was another set of moves by Knobby that really turned out well. Regardless of what decision he makes, there will be plenty of pressure on either guy to come through with a clutch performance.


Lastly, we wrapped up the Friday episode of ONR with another round of Ask the Idiots and Hot and Cold Performers before winding down with some score predictions ahead of Game 5 against the Dallas Stars. As always, the Friday episode of Oilersnation Radio was a blast to record, and we all hope you had just as much fun listening as we did making it.

  • 394. We talked about the Oilers' GM search and then a bunch of random nonsense

    01:14:51
    It's Friday afternoon, meaning a fresh episode of Oilersnation Radio has been edited and ready to massage your ear holes. This week, we're talking about the Oilers' GM search, the Edmonton heat wave, and whatever random nonsense we could think of to fill the time. The guys kicked off the podcast with a random collection of topics, including a weather report, English TV recommendations, and whatever else they could think of to kill time since there's not much going on. Even though the fellas knew they were supposed to talk about the Oilers, they took a while to actually get going. Once they actually started talking about hockey, the conversation turned to who Jeff Jackson will hire as the Oilers' new general manager over the next few weeks. Will he pick an experienced candidate, as many people suspect, or will he go with a different candidate that no one sees coming? Either way, Jackson said earlier this week that he would like to get someone in place sooner rather than later, so it seems like it won't be much longer until we get our answer.Finally, we wrapped up the Friday episode of ONR with some Ask the Idiots questions, Kennedy's quote game, and another round of Hot and Cold Performers. Despite the fact that nothing is happening in the hockey world right now, the fact that we were able to knock out more than an hour of hockey content is truly remarkable. That's not to say that we need a parade, but we wouldn't be opposed to one if someone would like to organize it. 💻 Website: https://oilersnation.com/https://twitter.com/ONradiopodcasthttps://www.youtube.com/@Oilersnationdotcom/ https://www.facebook.com/OilersNation/https://www.instagram.com/onradiopodcast/https://www.tiktok.com/@oilersnationSHOUTOUT TO OUR SPONSORS!!👍🏼Mill Woods Golf Course: https://www.millwoodsgolfcourse.com/👍🏼Powered by @bet365.

  • 393. Getting excited about Matthew Savoie and all kinds of summer shenanigans

    01:16:19
    It's Friday afternoon, which means a fresh episode of Oilersnation Radio has been edited and is ready to massage your ear holes. This week, we're talking about the Ryan McLeod trade, answering your questions, and discussing whatever else is going on in our lives.The guys kicked off the Friday episode of Oilersnation Radio with a delicious debate about who is more likely to be on the opening night roster: Evander Kane or Cody Ceci. The Oilers are over the cap, so the team will need to do something to become cap-compliant, and a lot of folks are looking at those two players as potential options to move. Changing gears, the guys walked through an article series that Liam is working on that showcases the best and worst draft picks the Oilers have had outside of the first round. With the draft on our minds, we looked back at some of our favourite depth picks and then tortured ourselves by talking about some of the legit NHL players that were selected after. We can't wait to share this series with you!From there, the boys looked at the Ryan McLeod for Matthew Savoie trade and whether their opinion on the trade has changed in the last week after thinking about it a little bit. Even with some time to think things over, everybody on the podcast still loves the trade, even though it means losing a quality player in Ryan McLeod. It's a discussion that's sure to keep you entertained and engaged, as we thoroughly enjoyed talking about it. 💻 Website: https://oilersnation.com/https://twitter.com/ONradiopodcasthttps://www.youtube.com/@Oilersnationdotcom/ https://www.facebook.com/OilersNation/https://www.instagram.com/onradiopodcast/https://www.tiktok.com/@oilersnation SHOUTOUT TO OUR SPONSORS!!👍🏼Mill Woods Golf Course: https://www.millwoodsgolfcourse.com/👍🏼Powered by @bet365.

  • 392. Jeff Jackson crushed it as the Oilers' non-GM general manager

    01:11:16
    It's Friday afternoon, meaning a fresh episode of Oilersnation Radio has been edited and ready to massage your ear holes. This week, we're talking all things free agency, as the Oilers were major players in the NHL's annual fishing derby. Kicking off the Tuesday episode of Oilersnation Radio, the boys started the show with a delicious debate about everyone's favourite move from the first day of free agency. Even though the Oilers didn't have much cap space to spend, Jeff Jackson was able to do a lot to not only bring back his free agents but also improve the roster. The guys also offered their grades on all of the moves the Oilers made yesterday. From bringing back Connor Brown, Adam Henrique, and Mattias Janmark as UFAs to landing Jeff Skinner and Viktor Arvidsson as UFAs, Edmonton was one of the busier teams in the league on day one, and the fellas were pretty damned excited to talk about it. The guys wound down the Tuesday episode of Oilersnation Radio with some betting talk for bet365, as the sportsbook has already released some future bets for the 2024-25 season. Finally, the boys offered their takes on what the Oilers have left to do in free agency or if they think the team is done until training camp, provided they can clear the necessary cap space. Needless to say, this was the most excited that Oilers fans have been about heading into the summer that anyone can remember.
  • 391. Who stays and who goes?

    55:16
    The Edmonton Oilers are now in full off season mode with the NHL Draft starting today and free agency opening up on Monday. The Oilers don't have any top core players heading to free agency; however, they still have the likes of Warren Foegele, Adam Henrique and Mattias Janmark all pending as unrestricted free agency. Liam, Rick, Dan and Tyler, for a short period of the show, dove into who the Oilers should look to bring back and who they should move on from. As the show moved on, they talked about Ken Holland after it was announced earlier this week that he would no longer be the general manager. The guys gave their thoughts his Holland's time here deciding if his tenure was successful or a failure. They then closed out the show with Ask the Idiots and Hot and Cold performers.
  • 390. The Oilers lose in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final

    01:06:18
    The Edmonton Oilers quest for a sixth Stanley Cup came to an end last night, losing 2-1 to the Florida Panthers. The lose put a somber tone on today's edition of Oilersnation Radio. With Tyler and Baggedmilk travelling and Rick still in his feels, Liam and Nation Dan took the wheel along with Woz, Kennedy and, special guest, Captain Feltan.Of the jump, the five of them recapped Game 7 and talked about what went wrong for the Oilers. Was it the early goal by the Florida Panthers? The play of Sergei Bobrovsky? Or not rolling the lines in the third period? From there, they continued to discuss the Final but specifically Connor McDavid's Conn Smythe win. They reviewed the final ballot and talked about McDavid not collecting the award on the ice.As the show continued on, the gang started to have some fun with Dan's 3 v 3 game. This weeks topic was "Oilers Superfans" which was fitting with Captain Feltan in the room. They ran through that and then played "Can you clear this up for me?" which is Woz's signature segment.💻 Website: https://oilersnation.com/https://twitter.com/ONradiopodcasthttps://www.youtube.com/@Oilersnationdotcom/ https://www.facebook.com/OilersNation/https://www.instagram.com/onradiopodcast/https://www.tiktok.com/@oilersnation SHOUTOUT TO OUR SPONSORS!!👍🏼Mill Woods Golf Course: https://www.millwoodsgolfcourse.com/👍🏼Boston Pizza: https://teamupforthewin.ca/👍🏼Great Clips: https://app.greatclips.com/👍🏼Powered by @bet365.

  • 389. The Oilers' most important home game of the year

    01:04:28
    It's Friday afternoon, and that means a fresh episode of Oilersnation Radio has been edited and ready to massage your ear holes. The major difference this week is that the Oilers are fighting for their lives in Game 6 with the chance to push this series back to Florida for a seventh and deciding game.The boys started the Friday episode of Oilersnation Radio discussing what their non-negotiables are for Game 6 if the Oilers are going to win their third straight elimination game. Whether it's being strong on the special teams, limiting mistakes, keeping Florida to the outside of the ice, getting saves, or anything in between, there are lots of details the Oilers will need to focus on if they're going to extend the series.Changing gears, we looked back at Game 5 and what the Oilers did well in that win and what they need to improve on. Needless to say, beating the Panthers for a third straight time will be incredibly difficult, but Baggedmilk wanted to know what needs to be carried over and what needs to be scrapped ahead of the most important home game in nearly two decades.Lastly, we wrapped up the episode of ONR with another round of Ask the Idiots and Hot and Cold Performers before winding down with some score predictions ahead of a do-or-die Game 6 against the Florida Panthers. As always, the Friday episode of Oilersnation Radio was a blast to record, and we all hope you had just as much fun listening as we did making it.💻 Website: https://oilersnation.com/https://twitter.com/ONradiopodcasthttps://www.youtube.com/@Oilersnationdotcom/ https://www.facebook.com/OilersNation/https://www.instagram.com/onradiopodcast/https://www.tiktok.com/@oilersnationSHOUTOUT TO OUR SPONSORS!!👍🏼 Wendy’s: https://order.wendys.com/rewards?lang=en_CA👍🏼Mill Woods Golf Course: https://www.millwoodsgolfcourse.com/👍🏼Boston Pizza: https://teamupforthewin.ca/👍🏼Great Clips: https://app.greatclips.com/👍🏼Powered by @bet365.

  • 388. Can the Oilers drag the Panthers back to Alberta in Game 5?

    01:03:02
    The Edmonton Oilers are fighting for their lives tonight in Game 5, which meant there was plenty for the boys to discuss on the Tuesday episode of Oilersnation Radio. On the Tuesday episode of ONR, the boys covered the Oilers' commanding Game 4 win, what they need to do to extend the series, and the rumours from last week that the team has engaged in extension talks with Leon Draisaitl.We kicked off the Tuesday episode of Oilersnation Radio with a delicious debate about why everyone thinks the Oilers will still be alive tomorrow morning. Everybody knows how tough it's going to be for the Oilers to go into Sunrise and win their first road game of the series with their backs against the wall, but Baggedmilk wanted to hear why everyone thinks the job can still get done. No one is saying it will be easy, but that doesn't mean it's impossible.Changing gears, the guys needed to spend some time discussing what it was like to experience a Stanley Cup Final win in Edmonton on Saturday night. Whether you were at the game or downtown, the celebration was unavoidable, and the jubilation was very easy to get swept up in. And since the Oilers won Game 4 so handily, it was fair to wonder if any of the lessons and successes from that win can carry over into a do-or-die Game 5 matchup on the road.Finally, we wrapped up the Tuesday edition of ONR with another round of Dan's 3v3 game, which was all about the greatest comebacks we could think of. Finally, Baggedmilk stepped in for Woz for another edition of Can You Clear That Up For Me, which was centred around the parallels between the NBA/NHL finals and whether or not the Oilers' season can be deemed a success regardless of the result in Game 5.SHOUTOUT TO OUR SPONSORS!!👍🏼 Wendy’s: https://order.wendys.com/rewards?lang=en_CA👍🏼Mill Woods Golf Course: https://www.millwoodsgolfcourse.com/👍🏼Boston Pizza: https://teamupforthewin.ca/👍🏼Great Clips: https://app.greatclips.com/👍🏼Powered by @bet365.

  • 387. Oilers look to avoid disaster on home ice

    01:09:31
    It's Friday afternoon, and that means a fresh episode of Oilersnation Radio has been edited and ready to massage your ear holes. The major difference this week is that the Oilers are down three games, the sky seems to be falling, and we still had to try and grind out a podcast that's entertaining for everyone. Needless to say, it wasn't fun.The boys started the Friday episode of Oilersnation Radio with a delicious debate about what has been the biggest issue with the Oilers falling 3-0 to start their series against the Florida Panthers. For most of the boys, it's the lack of offence that has let them down the most. With only four goals scored in nine periods of play, the Oilers haven't been able to score nearly as much as they usually do.From there, the guys fell off the rails again. They were clearly trying to avoid talking about the Oilers' current position in the Stanley Cup Final and wanted to talk about literally anything other than hockey. From pop rankings to banana shenanigans to how many Taco Bell Cantinas there are in the U.S.A., there was no topic too dumb to spend time on to avoid talking hockey.Lastly, we wrapped up the episode of ONR with another round of Ask the Idiots and Hot and Cold Performers before winding down with some score predictions ahead of a do-or-die Game 4 against the Florida Panthers. As always, the Friday episode of Oilersnation Radio was a blast to record, and we all hope you had just as much fun listening as we did making it.💻 Website: https://oilersnation.com/https://twitter.com/ONradiopodcasthttps://www.youtube.com/@Oilersnationdotcom/ https://www.facebook.com/OilersNation/https://www.instagram.com/onradiopodcast/https://www.tiktok.com/@oilersnationSHOUTOUT TO OUR SPONSORS!!👍🏼 Wendy’s: https://order.wendys.com/rewards?lang=en_CA👍🏼Mill Woods Golf Course: https://www.millwoodsgolfcourse.com/👍🏼Boston Pizza: https://teamupforthewin.ca/👍🏼Great Clips: https://app.greatclips.com/👍🏼Powered by @bet365.
