The 4th Line WHLCast #1 – The Debut

The debut episode of The 4th Line WHLCast is here! Andy Eide and Ryan Pike join Carl Landra as they dive into what has been happening in the WHL.

As the season is already a few months old, it seemed fitting to use this opportunity to get up to speed on some of the surprises to start the season.

  • As Andy is in the Seattle area he gives us the low down on Carter Hart’s outstanding performance to start the season.
  • With the Regina Pats hosting the Memorial Cup this year, what steps will they take to do themselves proud in the Mem Cup tournament?
  • Many of the current starting goalies aren’t expected to be with their teams next year. What can teams do to solidify their goaltending into the future?

With World Junior Hockey Championship camp rosters announced we can start to look ahead to the tournament:

  • Who could have been added to a camp roster and just missed out?
  • What impact will the loss of key players like Carter Hart, Sam Steel, Cal Foote and more have on teams fighting to maintain their playoff footing?
  • What are the differences between the tournament in Canada and the United States?
  • What dual citizenship players will be suiting up for which country?

With Calgary already having made a big trade and another one likely coming shortly, what other teams could be looking to move out players? What team could be looking to add players?

  • Will the Calgary Hitmen and other young teams be able to ride the wave of young talent to a resurgence to end the season?
  • How does having two WHL teams in the Memorial Cup impact the trade deadline?
