As David Ayres has continued his Tour de Force, we discuss the logistics of the emergency backup goalie.

With the emergency backup goalie the flavor of the month, is that the best way to handle the goalie injury problem?

It’s been a week since the trade deadline. The San Jose Sharks didn’t trade Joe Thornton. Should they have moved him to finally let him get a Stanley Cup?

The Carolina Hurricanes are struggling with their top 2 goalies hurt. Can they fix the losing streak in time for a playoff birth?

The Toronto Maple Leafs are winning, in spite of their defense being almost entirely hurt. What’s the trick?

Looking at the Western Conference playoff race, will the Minnesota Wild pull themselves out of the Elimination Station?

Speaking of the Elimination Station, the Chicago Blackhawks are the latest to enter it. Are there any moves to turn this team around, or do they just ride it out?

The Pavel Bure Must Watch Games of the Week are selected too!

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.
