Podcasts, podcasts, podcasts! PLUS: Have they fired Ken Holland yet?! AND: SERIOUSLY?! WHY NOT?!

Morning, folks.

A bit behind it this morning as I started listening to some podcasts and, before you know it, it’s after 8:00. Minty.

Now that the deadline has come and gone and Ken Holland has basically conceded that neither he nor the team is good enough to win this year — and with the Oilers off for a couple days yet — we turn our attention toward the looming expansion draft, in which there is some discussion over the Oilers’ best path forward.

FWIW, I think both Alan and Darcy are right here. I think they should go 4-4-1, but that they will go 7-3-1. For a number of reasons, but primarily because Ken Holland might just be dumb as a post.

He needs to go. He really does. He CANNOT be in charge this summer. He’s going to ruin everything.
