Wrapping up a perfect month of January for the Edmonton Oilers

Ep. 349

It's Tuesday afternoon, and that means a fresh episode of Oilersnation Radio is all set and ready to discuss everything related to the Edmonton Oilers. This week, we're looking ahead at the NHL trade deadline, dove into the Oilers' 16-game win streak, and previewed what to expect from the NHL All-Star Game. 


Kicking off the fresh episode of ONR, we jumped in with a delicious debate about Jay Downton's dream of bringing in Sidney Crosby as a deadline addition. If you listened to the Monday episode of Real Life, you'd know that the guys spent way too much time following him down the rabbit hole. Obviously, Sid isn't going to be available, but that did lead us to talk about potential targets that the Oilers could look at as potential deadline targets. 


Changing gears, we looked back at the Oilers' perfect month of January and how the team kept finding ways to win games even though they may not have deserved it. From the depth scoring to the PK success to keep things locked up in the defensive zone, the Oilers had contributions from throughout the lineup, and it gave the team a sense of resiliency that contributed to a bunch of wins. Lastly, we wrapped up the Tuesday episode of ONR with another round of Can You Clear That Up For Me as well as a game preview of tonight's matchup against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

  • 370. Connor McDavid gets his 100th assist and some love for Warren Foegele

    01:09:14
    Oilersnation Radio is your favourite twice-weekly podcast, and that makes today a great day because we've got a fresh episode of the show wrapped up and ready to get you through the week.Kicking off the Tuesday podcast, we started the podcast with a delicious debate about whether or not we would play Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl over the last couple of games, given that there's not a whole lot left to play for in the regular season. Seeing as the Oilers are unlikely to kick off their playoff run until Monday, would you want the Dynamic Duo on the shelf for that much time?Changing gears, we looked at Warren Foegele's time with the Oilers and whether or not this run will come to an end after he put up a hell of a season in his contract year. After putting up career bests in goals, assists, and points, is it realistic for Foegele to stick around Edmonton, or is it more likely that he chases the bag somewhere else? While Baggedmilk thinks Foegele is as good as gone, Rick thinks McLovin will be back with the Oilers when all is said and done. Lastly, we wrapped up the Tuesday episode of ONR with another round of Can You Clear That Up for Me before wrapping up the podcast with some score predictions ahead of tomorrow's matchup with the Coyotes. As always, the Tuesday 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/@oilersnation SHOUTOUT TO OUR SPONSORS!!Play the Wendy’s Daily Faceoff Survivor Game for your chance to win (link in description below)👍🏼 WENDYs https://dailyfaceoffsurvivor.com👍🏼 DoorDash: https://www.doordash.com/?utm_source=wavemaker&utm_medium=Integration&utm_campaign=DoorDash_CAN_Q4_2023_CX_Core_Integrations_NTL&utm_term=TheNationNetworkReach out to sales@thenationnetwork.com to connect with our Sales Team and discuss opportunities to partner with us!Visit www.nationgear.ca for merch and more.
  • 369. How much do you care about the Oilers winning the Pacific Division?

    01:11:39
    It's Friday afternoon, which means a fresh episode of Oilersnation Radio is all set and ready to carry you into the weekend.Kicking off the Friday podcast, we got started with a delicious debate about why the Oilers are better suited to win the Stanley Cup this year over last year. From the increased levels of experience to the way they had to fight through adversity early in the season to their improved forward depth, there are plenty of reasons to believe the Oilers can legitimately make a go of it.Changing gears, we looked ahead at tonight's matchup versus the Arizona Coyotes only to have the conversation derailed in minutes because of the Utah relocation news. After Frank Seravalli broke the news that the Coyotes will be moving to Salt Lake City for next season, it's almost a relief that this neverending story is finally reaching a conclusion.Turning our attention to what's left on the Oilers' schedule, we looked at this week's games against the Coyotes and Canucks and debated whether or not it makes sense for McDavid to sit out the whole weekend. Seeing as the Oilers still have the chance to win the Pacific Division, picking up wins is incredibly important, but do the points matter more than Connor being healthy for the playoffs?Lastly, we wrapped up the Friday episode of ONR with another round of Ask the Idiots and Hot and Cold Performers before wrapping up the podcast with some score predictions ahead of the games against the Coyotes and Canucks. 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.
  • 368. Breaking down two impressive wins & McDavid's injury

    58:08
    The guys are back with a fresh episode of Oilersnation Radio on a beautiful Tuesday in Edmonton. They kicked off today's pod by looking back at the Oilers two big wins on the weekend. The team smoked the Colorado Avalanche on Friday and followed it up with a very impressive victory over the Calgary Flames on Saturday night, which prompted Tyler to ask the crew what the most impressive part of that six period stretch was. From there, they gave some love to a few individual players with Who Delivered for DoorDash. That eventually led to some talk about the news that they got today from Oilers practice. Connor McDavid is day-to-day with a lower-body injury and is questionable for tomorrow's game vs the Vegas Golden Knights. Should the team rest #97? Or is tomorrow nights game big enough that the Captain should play even if he's not at 100%? They debated it.In the back half of the show, they played a little 3v3 centred around tomorrow's game against Vegas and Woz swung by with 'Can you clear that up for me?' where he asked just how important winning the division title actually is.
  • 367. How concerned should we be about the Oilers' loss to Dallas?

    01:26:34
    There's nothing better than spending your Friday afternoon with a fresh dose of Oilersnation Radio, the podcast dedicated to giving you a weekly hour of all things Edmonton Oilers. This week, we're discussing Wednesday's loss to the Stars, new line combinations, the Oilers' record vs. playoff teams, and more. Kicking off the podcast, we started with a delicious debate about Wednesday's loss in Dallas and whether we should be concerned about the way things went against a legitimate Stanley Cup favourite. Seeing as losing 5-0 is a tough pill to swallow at the best of times, but having the boys look so disorganized against a team as good as Dallas was endlessly frustrating.Changing gears, we looked at the new line combinations that Kris Knoblauch put down at practice today and wondered how the bottom line would fare with McDavid and Draisaitl together on the first line. With the nuclear deterrent now available at the top of the order, it will be hugely important for the rest of the roster to find ways to contribute. Lastly, we wrapped up the Friday episode of Oilersnation Radio with a handful of Ask the Idiots questions submitted by listeners, some betting talk for Bet99, and another round of Hot and Cold Performers before winding things down with some score predictions ahead of tonight's matchup with the Colorado Avalanche. 
  • 366. What is the biggest Oilers X-factor heading into the playoffs?

    01:14:28
    Oilersnation Radio is your favourite twice-weekly podcast, and that makes today a great day because we've got a fresh episode of the show wrapped up and ready to get you through the week. Kicking off the Tuesday podcast, we started the podcast with a very strange conversation about Liam's fashion sense after he confessed that he doesn't like wearing t-shirts. Coupled with a Nation Gear staff gift question, Liam's wardrobe turned into a fantastic opening segment that no one saw coming. Getting back to the actual podcast, we got going with a delicious debate about what is the greatest X-factor for the Oilers down the stretch. Whether it's defencemen stepping up or players finding ways to score when it matters most, there are plenty of potential options to choose from. As you'll hear, there were plenty of interesting choices that ranged across the board. We also spent a few minutes talking about goaltending after the Oilers signed Olivier Rodrique to a one-year contract extension. The guys also discussed former friend, Mikko Koskinen, announcing his retirement upon the completion of the Swiss season. In hindsight, were we too hard on Mikko?Lastly, we wrapped up the Tuesday episode of ONR with another round of Can You Clear That Up for Me before wrapping up the podcast with some score predictions ahead of tomorrow's matchup with the Jets. As always, the Tuesday 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.SHOUTOUT TO OUR SPONSORS!!Play the Wendy’s Daily Faceoff Survivor Game for your chance to win (link in description below)👍🏼 WENDYs https://dailyfaceoffsurvivor.com👍🏼Bet 99: https://bet99-8390734.hs-sites.com/oilersnation-b99net-giveaway👍🏼 DoorDash: https://www.doordash.com/?utm_source=wavemaker&utm_medium=Integration&utm_campaign=DoorDash_CAN_Q4_2023_CX_Core_Integrations_NTL&utm_term=TheNationNetwork👍🏼 Snow Valley Aerial Park: https://www.snowvalley.ca/aerial-park/👍🏼Rainbow Valley Campground: https://www.rainbow-valley.com/
  • 365. Will Connor McDavid catch Nikita Kucherov for the Art Ross Trophy?

    01:08:27
    Just because we're heading into the long weekend doesn't mean that we're not offering up our usual dose of Friday afternoon Oilers talk. This week, we're recapping the Oilers' big win over LA, Connor McDavid's Art Ross Trophy hunt, depth scoring, and more.Kicking off the podcast, we started with a delicious debate about how Kris Knoblauch should dole out playing time down the stretch. Even though there's still plenty to play for right now, that may not necessarily be the case after the Oilers clinch a playoff spot. Would it make sense to sit some of the stars for a game or two if the team can lock in a second-place finish?We also looked back at last night's win over the Los Angeles Kings and how that performance was one of the Oilers' best defensive efforts that we've seen in quite some time. Despite the Kings playing the trap, it was the Oilers that really didn't give up much of anything. Outside of their lone goal in the third period, the Kings struggled to get much done despite firing a ton of shots from the perimeter.Lastly, we wrapped up the Friday episode of Oilersnation Radio with a handful of Ask the Idiots questions submitted by listeners, some betting talk for Bet99, and another round of Hot and Cold Performers before winding things down with some score predictions ahead of tomorrow's matchup with the Anaheim Ducks.SHOUTOUT TO OUR SPONSORS!!Play the Wendy’s Daily Faceoff Survivor Game for your chance to win (link in description below)👍🏼 WENDYs https://dailyfaceoffsurvivor.com👍🏼Bet 99: https://bet99-8390734.hs-sites.com/oilersnation-b99net-giveaway👍🏼 DoorDash: https://www.doordash.com/?utm_source=wavemaker&utm_medium=Integration&utm_campaign=DoorDash_CAN_Q4_2023_CX_Core_Integrations_NTL&utm_term=TheNationNetwork👍🏼 Snow Valley Aerial Park: https://www.snowvalley.ca/aerial-park/👍🏼Rainbow Valley Campground: https://www.rainbow-valley.com/Reach out to sales@thenationnetwork.com to connect with our Sales Team and discuss opportunities to partner with us!Visit  www.nationgear.ca for merch and more.
  • 364. Giving Zach Hyman flowers for his first 50-goal season

    01:06:32
    It's the Tuesday after the NHL trade deadline, and that means we've got a fresh episode of Oilersnation Radio set and ready to discuss all things Edmonton Oilers. This week, we're talking about Evander Kane being out against the Senators, Zach Hyman's 50th goal, and offered a quick preview for tonight's game against the Jets. Kicking off the podcast, we started with a delicious debate about Evander Kane's maintenance day in Ottawa and whether or not it was actually a day to recover or if there was more to it than that. If you read into Kane's pre-game comments ahead of Tuesday's game against the Jets, it certainly seems like there was more to the story than a sitting out for lack of goal-scoring.Changing gears, we looked at Zach Hyman cashing in his 50th goal against the Ottawa Senators and how that goal spawned all kinds of interesting reactions from other fanbases. If you dig into the Internet deep enough, you can find all kinds of hilarious reactions to Hyman's 50-goal season, and we broke down some of the best of the bunch.Lastly, we wrapped up the Tuesday episode of ONR with another round of Can You Clear That Up for Me with our boy Woz before wrapping up the podcast with some score predictions ahead of tonight's matchup with the Jets. As always, the Tuesday 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/@oilersnation SHOUTOUT TO OUR SPONSORS!!👍🏼 WENDYs👍🏼 Bet 99👍🏼 DoorDash👍🏼 Snow Valley Aerial Park👍🏼 Rainbow Valley CampgroundReach out to sales@thenationnetwork.com to connect with our Sales Team and discuss opportunities to partner with us!Visit www.nationgear.ca for merch and more.
  • 363. Should Troy Stecher play every day on defence over someone else?

    01:12:30
    It's Friday afternoon, and the Oilers are coming off a pair of big wins, which meant there was plenty to talk about on the latest episode of Oilersnation Radio. This week, we're looking at the Oilers' current win streak, Mattias Ekholm's big night, and a whole lot more.Kicking off the new episode of ONR, the podcast started with a delicious debate about whether or not Troy Stecher has done enough to become an everyday player over someone like Ceci or Desharnais. In last night's game against Buffalo, Stecher played very well while Ceci struggled a little bit, and that has Oilers fans wondering if it's time for a switch on defensive pairings.Continuing with our coverage of last night's win, we keyed in on a handful of fantastic performances that contributed to the win. From Mattias Ekholm's three-point night to Connor McDavid's four-point night to Darnell Nurse's game winner, there were plenty of fantastic stories from last night's win that were worth celebrating.Lastly, we wrapped up the Friday episode of Oilersnation Radio with a handful of Ask the Idiots questions, some betting talk for Bet99, and another round of Hot and Cold Performers before winding things down with some score predictions ahead of tomorrow's matchup with the Toronto Maple Leafs.
  • 362. Who is the ideal first round opponent for the Edmonton Oilers?

    58:02
    It's the Tuesday after the NHL trade deadline, and that means we've got a fresh episode of Oilersnation Radio set and ready to discuss all things Edmonton Oilers. This week, we're talking about Vinny Desharnais' hand injury, Saturday's loss vs. the Avalanche, and we learned why Liam thinks we should stop talking about the trade deadline. Starting off the podcast, we started the show with a delicious debate about which team we would prefer the Oilers to face in round one. Given that three or four teams could realistically line up as the Oilers' opponents in round one, the answers we gave for who we'd like to see them face in round one were quite varied. Looking at what's happening on the ice, we dissected Saturday's loss to the Colorado Avalanche and spoke about whether or not Edmonton was outclassed by the opposition. Some folks on social media wondered whether or not that loss meant the Oilers couldn't keep up with the Avs in a seven-game series, but none of us were buying that logic in the slightest. Lastly, we wrapped up the Tuesday episode of ONR with another round of Can You Clear That Up for Me with Woz before wrapping up the podcast with some score predictions ahead of tonight's matchup with the Habs. As always, the Tuesday episode of Oilersnation Radio was a blast to record, and we all of hope you had just as much fun listening to this nonsense. 💻 Website: https://oilersnation.com/ https://twitter.com/OilersNation/ https://www.youtube.com/@Oilersnationdotcom/ https://www.facebook.com/OilersNation/https://www.instagram.com/oilersnationdotcomhttps://www.tiktok.com/@oilersnation SHOUTOUT TO OUR SPONSORS!!Play the Wendy’s Daily Faceoff Survivor Game for your chance to win (link in description below)👍🏼 WENDYs https://dailyfaceoffsurvivor.com👍🏼 DoorDash: https://www.doordash.com/👍🏼 Snow Valley/Rainbow Valley: https://www.snowvalley.ca/ 👍🏼 Bet99: https://bet99.com/ Reach out to sales@thenationnetwork.com to connect with our Sales Team and discuss opportunities to partner with us!
