It’s Monday morning. The Oilers had an, uh, eventful weekend. This weekend saw the club drop an OT decision to the Ottawa Senators, while Oilers CEO Bob Nicholson embarked on the Great Damage Control Tour of 2019.
Monday’s hotlinks are served fresh and hot, with extra broth and crusty bread. Dive in.
- Over at OilersNation, Baggedmilk kicks the Monday Mailbag off about Bob Nicholson’s terrible, horrible, no good very bad week. After a series of Season Ticket Holder meetings, Bob Nicholson finds that the Tier One fans aren’t really happy with the product.
- MORE BOB: Jonathan Willis suggests that Nicholson’s tirade against Tobias Rieder might just be the tip of the iceberg with regards to managerial problems in the Oilers’ organization.
- Bruce McCurdy’s latest at the Cult of Hockey suggests that the Oilers are over-relying on Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl by quite a fair bit.
- Lowetide takes a look at Saturday’s OTL to the Senators. Top line is golden, the second line still needs help on the wings. You know what you’re getting on lines three and four by now. Rinse and repeat.
Oilers hook up with the Kings tomorrow night. Seven more to go.
