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.
McDavid Signs, Bandwagon Teams and more!
The guys are back as they explore more of what Carl should do with his bandwagon team problem. What should he be looking for in a bandwagon team? What about cheering for a bandwagon team in the same division as the Avalanche? The listeners have their suggestions and Joel gives his thoughts on who he should cheer for.
They also break down the news of the week, including:
– Connor McDavid‘s contract with the Edmonton Oilers. How does this impact future signings that will happen? How much will the likes of Leon Draisaitl, John Tavares, Mitch Marner and Auston Matthews sign for?
Lastly, Carl and Joel talk about the current state of sports media as they look back on how we got here, where we’ll go and if they’re okay with the direction that sports media is going.
