Nick is away this week but German of the 104 Podcast is here to fill in!
We start by looking back on the news of the week, including:
Jonathan Toews is a proponent of a new format to the schedule that would lead to more sleep and less environmental harm. But is it better for the on ice product?
Roman Josi signed an extension with the Nashville Predators. As one of the best defenders in the league, there’s no chance that it’s a bad deal…..right?
Vladimir Tarasenko and Gabriel Landeskog are out for extended periods of time. Which of the Central division’s Blues or Avalanche are best equipped to with stand the loss? Also, can Carl withstand the loss of his captain?
We also speak with Power Play: Professional Hockey and the Politics of Urban Development. What does modern day arena financing look like? They explore this through the lens of Rogers Place in Edmonton and share with us what they found.
Lastly, we pick the Pavel Bure Must Watch Games of the Week!
All this and more on episode 254 of the 4th Line Hockey Podcast!

The 4th Line Podcast is a weekly hockey podcast hosted by Carl Landra and Nick Seguin. 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.
