I joined Adrienne Pan on the CBC Edmonton News this week to discuss all things Oilers. Clip is here and starts at the 18:00 mark: CBC Edmonton News (2018, March 8)
Topics we covered:
- Eberle’s return to Edmonton as a member of the Islanders, and his season so far.
- The trade that sent away Eberle for Strome, and how why it wasn’t a smart move by management. Largely because the Oilers didn’t properly allocate their cap savings and they traded Eberle when his value was at its worst.
- The improved play of Ryan Strome, but also why we should temper expectations. His underlying shot numbers have not been good, and I don’t think he’s shown enough as a center. The Oilers really need to careful how they evaluate him considering he’s due for a contract this summer.
- The trade rumors around Klefbom, and why the Oilers would be selling low if they were to move him. Best to hold on to your good, young talent.
Big thanks to the crew at CBC. 🙂
