Craig Custance takes a brief break from the circus on the eve of Connor McDavid’s NHL debut to discuss realistic expectations for both him and the Oilers this season. We also look into whether Jeff Blashill’s experience in Grand Rapids will result in a different style of handling young talent in Detroit, and why he’s higher on the Blue Jackets and Stars than most.
Plus a bonus treat for those that have listened to past episodes of the podcast (specifically the Western Conference preview): some insight on why the Blues made the Oshie-for-Brouwer swap this summer is provided.
