CBC Radio Active: Oilers busy on day one of NHL free agency

I joined Rod Kurtz on CBC Radio Active to talk about the Oilers and their free agency activities. Full segment is here: CBC Radio Active (2021, July 28).

Topics we covered:

  • The signings of Zach Hyman, what he brings to the team and the risks associated with the contract.
  • Trading away Ethan Bear to make room for veteran defencemen, and what to expect from forward Warren Foegele.
  • Re-signing Tyson Barrie and his actual impact on the team.
  • Signing Cody Ceci, and if he can fill Adam Larsson’s role (short answer: nope).
  • Chances of Evan Bouchard taking another step and playing meaningful minutes, and the barriers in place.
  • Remaining issues and how the front office remains the Oilers biggest deficiency.

Thanks to the team at CBC for putting it all together!
