The 4th Line Podcast is a weekly hockey podcast hosted by Carl Landra and Joel Schnell. Every week they share their unique and fun take on what is happening in the world of hockey. While they don’t take themselves too seriously, they have a typical no 4th line attitude: what they lack in finesse, they make for in being willing to go to the corners and work hard to get the job done.
Who are Carl and Joel? Carl comes from Calgary, AB. His facial hair of choice is a mustache. His team of choice is the Colorado Avalanche and his smoked meat of choice is brisket. Joel comes from Nanaimo, BC. His facial hair of choice is a beard. His team of choice is the Toronto Maple Leafs and his smoked meat of choice is ribs.
The guys are back as they break down all that happened in the week following the NHL draft and the start of NHL free agency, including:
–Carey Price signed an 8 year extension with the Canadiens. How will that turn out for them?
– The Washington Capitals kept their RFA’s on the roster. Is it enough for them to continue to be a Stanley Cup contender?
– The signings of Marleau and Hainsey but the Toronto Maple Leafs. Will this hurt them into the future more than it will help them now?
-The moves of Carl’s Colorado Avalanche. Were they enough to give him hope?
– What were the best deals of NHL free agency? What were the worst? Who were the winners and losers?
