One month away from the start of the NHL season, Carl and Joel are back exploring some of the weirder NHL rules, including goaltender rules and what happens when the officials cannot officiate any longer.

Noah Hanifin has signed a contract extension with the Calgary Flames. Is it time to start worrying about the other un-signed RFA’s?

Nate Schmidt has been suspended 20 games for performance enhancing substances. But his defense of the suspension is what has everyone talking. How much are the Vegas Golden Knights to blame for this? Is his defense worth buying?

The Philadelphia Flyers are on the Summer Hot Seat. Is this team better or worse than last year? What are their biggest strengths and weaknesses? Can Carter art be handed the keys to the team yet?

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.
