cbc edmonton logoI joined Adrienne Pan for my weekly segment on the CBC Edmonton News to discuss the Oilers and the playoffs. Clip is here and starts at the 19:00 mark: CBC Edmonton News (2018, May 3)

Topics we covered:

  • The importance of drafting 10th overall and why the Oilers should not be trading the pick away.
  • The signing of Mikko Koskinen and how other teams like the Avalanche are approaching their back-up goaltending position.
  • Things the Oilers management needs to do this off-season and why a long-term perspective is needed when it comes to asset management.
  • Re-cap of game four between the Sharks and Golden Knights.
  • What the Oilers can learn from the Winnipeg Jets, including the importance of drafting and developing their own talent.
