The 4th Line Hockey Podcast #164 – The Bigger and Better 2018

The guys are back from their week off for a power shortened episode (sort of), promising for a Bigger and Better 2018.  Before Joel loses power, the guys discuss:

The outdoor game from the World Junior Hockey Championship. Was this the worse hockey game that ever took place? The refs were bad. The TV camera placement was bad. The weather was bad. And the play was bad. Is there anything to actually take away from this game?

The Arizona Coyotes’ Zac Rinaldo was suspended six games for his sucker punch on Colorado Avalanche defenseman Samuel Girard. Was this enough of a punishment?


Rounding out the bad news for 2017, the Winnipeg Jets will be without Mark Scheifele for almost 2 months. Can they maintain they performance without him?

Carl is left alone so he picks the Pavel Bure Must Watch Games of the Week, for you to play Hi Sticking with.

To make up for the shortness of this week’s episode, let’s revisit a landmark episode for the show: The Captain’s Royal Rumble. Originally released on July 31, 2016 this is “probably [Joel’s] greatest idea ever for the show”.

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.
