In what can only be described as 'epic' - Robin Brownlee makes his inaugural appearance on NationRadio this week. After 25 episodes of refusing to appear as a guest, the legend vaults right into the big chair taking the reins as the host, filling in for Lowetide who is on a well deserved vacation. And he flipped through his rolodex and booked some pretty spectacular guests.
Not one but TWO Edmonton Oilers are on the show this week as Sam Gagner and Ryan Whitney stop by to say hello. Newly re-signed Oilers play by play man Kevin Quinn comes by too, to put the rumours of a multi-million dollar contract to bed. Oh yeah, and Oilers Head Scout Stu MacGregor? He's here too.
This is some amazing NationRadio.
Oilers Head Scout Stu Macgregor stops by to discuss the Rookie Tournament, the numerous second year players on the Oilers roster next year, the RNH, and defensive prospects in the system.
Ever hear of Edmonton Oilers Centre Sam Gagner? Yeah, well he is on the show talking about his recovery from hand surgery during the summer, young players in the NHL and the impact of playing weight on performance.
Mr. Brownlee makes another first for NationRadio taking calls from Citizens of the Nation as depicted in the photo above.
Ryan Whitney plays defense for the Edmonton Oilers. Perhaps you have seen him on the television at some point. In any event he stops by the show to discuss his offseason rehab as well as the state of the Oilers defensive corps. He also looks ahead to the 2011-12 season.
Oilers play-by-play man Kevin Quinn stops by to discuss a myriad of topics with The Brownlee including his new contract with Sportsnet.
More conversation with Kevin Quinn brings the first episode of the Brownlee Era to a close.
