The 4th Line Hockey Podcast #259 – The Coach Controversy

With Nick away, it takes three people to replace him.

The Calgary Flames, and the NHL as a whole, had a bad week after news of coaches behaving badly happened repeatedly. Thankfully, this news is coming to light. What does it mean for the future of the league? Ryan Pike of Flames Nation and The Sporting News joins us to discuss the week that was for the Flames: the resignation of Bill Peters, the fallout and the future with Geoff Ward.

Matthew Dillner, producer of the Dale Jr. Download and lifelong New York Islanders fan, joins us to discuss the New York Islanders’ fantastic season. With Mathew Barzal leading the way and Thomas Greiss and Semyon Varlamov sharing the net, who are the unsung heroes leading this team?

Alex Metzger, co-host of the MnM Podcast, joins us as well to see what teams are destined for a playoff position swap with the season at the one third mark. Can the Lightning turn it around? Are the Leafs destined for failure? Can the Flames recover from this terrible stretch?

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.

Who are Carl and Nick? 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.  Nick comes from Toronto, ON. His facial hair of choice is a light beard. His team of choice is the Detroit Red Wings and his smoked meat of choice is ribs.
