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 backed as Carl has reached a final three in his bandwagon team decision. He calls on Mike and Derek from Section328.com to help him decide if the Carolina Hurricanes are the team for him. They touch on:
- What makes the Hurricanes a good team to follow
- What is a hidden joy about the Canes?
- What is the worst part about being a Caniac?
- What kind of a team the Canes are and who are the most fun players to watch, including Jeff Skinner and Sebastian Aho?
- Where will the Hurricanes finish in the standings this year?
Carl and Joel also review the Ryan Johansen extension with the Nashville Predators. How does this compare to other recent contracts? Also, with Andrei Markov going to the KHL, where will the Montreal Canadiens look to for skill on the powerplay? Lastly, with rumors of what Canada’s Olympic men’s hockey team will look like, will it even be worth watching for Canadians?
Thank you to Mike and Derek from Section 328 for joining us again!
