Craig Button on Leon Draisaitl's exchange, Kent Hughes & Leafs-Rangers tonight
TSN Hockey Director of Scouting Craig Button joined OverDrive earlier today and got into a number of things including the viral exchange between Leon Draisaitl & an Oilers reporter, Kent Hughes & what he's expecting to see from Leafs-Rangers tonight.
Mike Johnson on Kent Hughes’ to-do list in Montreal, Leon Draisaitl’s ‘pissy’ comments & the ongoing turmoil in Edmonton
TSN Hockey Analyst Mike Johnson joins OverDrive to discuss Kent Hughes being hired as General Manager of the Montreal Canadiens. Johnson dives into the challenges Hughes will face with Montreal’s cap situation, why it could be difficult to move the contracts of Brendan Gallagher and Josh Anderson, Leon Draisaitl getting into a spat with Edmonton reporters, the ongoing struggles of the Edmonton Oilers, and more.
Leon Draisaitl is a warlord, shower routines, and Stuart Skinner
It’s Friday afternoon and that means a brand new episode of Oilersnation Radio is here to help you finish off your week with an hour of all things Edmonton Oilers. On this week’s show, we looked at the Oilers' defence taking yet another hit, Stuart Skinner's emergence between the pipes, another round of Ask the Idiots, and a whole lot more. To kick off this week’s podcast, we got started with a swing at how many goals Leon Draisaitl will have beside his name when the season comes to an end. I don't think any of us expect that he'll maintain this goal per game pace, but it was fun to hear everyone's guesses on where they think he'll end up by the time April rolls around. Sticking with Draisaitl, we dug into the clip of Trevor Zegras from Spittin Chiclets where the rookie talked about challenging Draisaitl to a bet on the opening faceoff and the former MVP chirping him in a way that only he can. From there we moved into the Oilers' injury woes that have come up over the last week, and how that's provided a huge opportunity for some of the younger guys that maybe we weren't expecting to arrive quite so quickly. We also looked ahead at tomorrow's matchup against the Vegas Golden Knights and how that is a massive game against a divisional team that has really started to turn things around after a slow start to their season. Lastly, we wrapped up this week’s podcast with another round of Ask the Idiots and Hot and Cold performers to recap what was yet another very busy week here in Edmonton.
The Cult of Hockey's "Oilers and Leon Draisaitl run into the ground in loss to Flames" podcast
Cult of Hockey podcast
Let's do this! The Edmonton Oilers, playing their third game in four nights, ran out of gas in a 3-1 loss to the desperate and rested Calgary Flames. Edmonton has its chances, including 5-alarm shots by Dominik Kahun and Leon Draisaitl in the first, and another by Kailer Yamamoto in the third, but Calgary goalie Jacob Markstrom thwarted them each time. The big goalie was the difference this game. Bruce McCurdy and David Staples dig in for the Cult of Hockey. By the Faithful. And for the Faithful.
