The 4th Line Hockey Podcast #165 – The Elimination Station

The guys are back for the first episode of 2018 and Carl has reason to celebrate: His Colorado Avalanche are currently in a playoff spot. Does Joel buy that they can stay there the entire season?

As one with a beard, Joel gives us necessary insight into the battle of Nazem Kadri vs Joe Thornton‘s Beard. Why did the fight even happen? And why pull the beard?

Lias Andersson threw his silver medal from the World Junior Hockey Championships into the crowd. When is this okay? With Canada winning the gold medal it begs the next question: Should this be our Olympic men’s hockey team?

The guys bring a new segment to the show: The Elimination Station. This week the guys pick the Arizona Coyotes and the Buffalo Sabres as the teams that they are eliminating from playoff contention and ask the question, “What’s next?”

Peter Chiarelli made another trade this week, which made us wonder, is he the worst GM in the league?

Lastly, the Pavel Bure Must Watch Games of the Week are selected. Find out who gets selected and play along with Hi Sticking on Twitter.

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 Calgary, AB. 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.
