With the pre-season starting, the NHL decided to give us a busy week of off ice news!
The 4th Line Hockey Podcast #198 – The It’s No Longer Summer Episode
Erik Karlsson was traded from the Ottawa Senators to the San Jose Sharks. Which leads to questions about why the Sens did it, where Karlsson ends up and how Pierre Dorion still is a GM.
Steve Yzerman stepped down as the general manager of the Tampa Bay Lightning. Where does he end up and where does it leave the Lightning?
Henrik Zetterberg retired as a Detroit Red Wing, but Joel isn’t buying it.
Tyler Seguin signed an extension with the Dallas Stars, but why isn’t he getting as much hype as other offseason signings?
Rumors abound that the NHLPA will opt out of the current CBA deal, which means we get more Gary Bettman. Yeah……….
Austin Watson was suspended. Good.
Jake Dotchin was released by the Tampa Bay Lightning. Does this set a precedent for the future?
All this and more on episode 198!

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.
