It was the best of times and it was the worst of times. After just six days, the Oilers playoff run has come to an end and we are here to tell you how we feel about it. Is there a reason to be angry? Sad? Hopeful? We let all of our emotions out this week on The Real Life Podcast (pres. by JAPA Machinery).

The qualifying round series against Chicago was heartbreaking for a handful of reasons but there are still plenty of reasons to be optimistic about the future of the Edmonton Oilers. We talked about a few of them today on the podcast and also touched on the big story of the day: the NHL Draft Lottery. If the Oilers win, how could it change their plans? Also, what team do we want to see win if it’s not the Edmonton Oilers? We answered those questions.

We also kicked off a new segment! Every Monday on the podcast we will be joined by Scott Hastings from OddsShark to go in-depth on the world of sports betting, with a close focus on the NHL!
