Better Lait Than Never Ep. 36 – Waiting on Kailer Yamamoto, and people do WHAT in grocery stores?

If you’re a big fan of Wednesdays then there is no doubt in my mind that you’ll also be fired up about a brand new episode of Better Lait Than Never. To kick off this week’s podcast, I got started with a look at my weekend and specifically how I’ve never felt older than I did when I took my missus to K-Days on Saturday night. From the moment we walked in until the cab picked us up after the fireworks, that was easily one of the most expensive reminders that I’m an old guy now that I

BLT Bets Episode 15 – The Opening Five Innings and an EPL Week One Preview

Welcome back to another episode of BLT Bets with Baggedmilk, Liam and Tyler on the Nation Network of podcasts. Today, you’re during the show three of them in the middle of a Toronto Blue Jays game, so expect to hear some live updates throughout the show. Sticking with baseball, Tyler had some thoughts on the MLB following Tuesday’s trade deadline and how it could affect the World Series odds. The biggest name moved was certainly Juan Soto, who was acquired by the San Diego Padres. Now with

Canada runaway with the game against Slovakia

Another day, another win for Team Canada at the Hlinka Gretzky Cup, however, this time around, it didn’t come as easy as their 14-0 win over Switzerland on Sunday. Yes, they beat Slovakia 9-1, but for the first half of the game, their opponents seemed to find the Canadian’s weakness.  Slovakia clearly came into this contest with a game plan to try and knock Canada off their game by being aggressive and getting under their opponent’s skin and it worked to an extent. Canada wasn’t able t

Next Chapter

It was one year ago almost to the day, Aug. 2, 2021, when I was poking some fun at Kevin Lowe over the barn fight that never was with Brian Burke. It was a beef that started in 2007 when Lowe put an offer sheet on Dustin Penner when Burke was running the show with the Anaheim Ducks as general manager. It was a spat between two ultra-competitive men that were good friends (and are again). It made for good copy, but was put aside years later for more important matters – a Cure Cancer Foundatio

Which Oilers could regress in 2022-23?

Last week, I looked at which Oilers could reasonably be expected to improve next season. That list included names like Darnell Nurse, Jesse Puljujarvi, Kailer Yamamoto, and surprisingly, Connor McDavid. Now, it’s time to look at the not-so-fun side of this conversation: players who could regress next season. Off the jump, there is one very obvious candidate and that’s Evander Kane. After signing with the Oilers about halfway through the 2021-22 season, Kane scored 22 goals in 43 games and a

Sail on, Quebec Rempart

Sail on, Quebec Rempart

This clip was from summer 1983, and obviously Kevin Lowe and the Oilers found a way to make the money work. He was the first draft pick in Oilers NHL history, scored the first goal, played for all five Stanley Cup winners. Later he coached the team for one season and then as general manager was the architect of the 2005-06 team that made it all the way to the SCF. Lowe’s retirement from a prominent front office role was announced yesterday, and the reaction online ran the complete emo
