Edmonton Oilers Deliver Premium Content Services
I had to check the schedule to make sure it wasn’t April 1 yet. This is not the case, and it is very real.
Visitors to the Oilers website are urged to complete a premium content survey. Would you pay for premium content? A little glimpse behind the scenes? Getting in-depth interviews that are not available to the regular non-paying audience? Maybe, maybe not. The questionnaire asks you everything about the services that might interest you (or not) so that you can pay hard cash.
The one that caught my eye? An “Oil Change” style program, available only to subscribers.
You had me good morning “.
” WE ARE GOING THERE “
Yes. I would spend about $ 10 per month for a program similar to “Oil Change”.
“Oil change” was probably the funniest thing about the Oilers during the Dark Decade. If you missed it, Oil Change was a behind-the-scenes series that chronicled the rebuilding of the Edmonton Oilers. It spanned three incredible seasons from 2010 to 2013. It was must-see TV. You would get an interview with Jordan Eberle talking about the club’s upbeat future, you would get another with veteran Sam Gagner on how the club has evolved over time. Craig MacTavish would tell you a story about Kiril Tulupov. You would have a conversation with Nikolai Khabibulin because … well, you would have an interview with Nikolai Khabibulin. Some of this content was quite interesting. Sometimes you would chat with Rick Olczyk about the next Oilers draft.
Sometimes Steve Tambellini traded a fourth-round pick for Jerred Smithson in the 2013 NHL Trade Deadline and the trumpets would sound like something from a Mike Winters comic, except ironically. Jerred Smithson! Let’s go !
That’s the content I’m here for, and it’s a topic I’d gladly give a few dollars to. It has to be absolutely as serious as the first three years of an oil change though. Imagine Ken Holland being followed by a camera to the table of the inevitable deal with Luke Glendening. Let’s go for that.
I don’t know how many fans would be willing to part ways with real dollars to watch the executives of their favorite hockey club do mundane things like walk around a draft table or listen to one of the fourth liners in this. club talk about character in the locker room. If “Oil Change” or something like that comes up, odds are the stuff that costs a few bucks is way better than post-game audio.
For better or worse, a program like “Oil Change” would offer must-see material from some of the hockey minds who made this list. Depending on what you think of the Oilers, it will either make you feel confident or drive you crazy.
