The 4th Line Hockey Podcast #197 – The Wheeler and Dealing

On the heels of the Max Pacioretty trade from the Montreal Canadiens to the Vegas Golden Knights for Tomas Tatar, etc., the real question that needs to be asked is: When did Marc Bergevin get so fit, and was he a better player than general manager?  Did the trade have a winner, and is Patches’ extension good for the Knights?

Seaking of extensions, Blake Wheeler signed an extension with the Winnipeg Jets. Is it a case of too much, too late?

The Vancouver Canucks are on the final Summer Hot Seat. With a mix of young talent and old players on this team, what can be expected from this team? And is Jim Benning getting better at his job? Find out, in an all new game of “Carl Picks the Best GM in the League”!

All this and more on episode 197!

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.
