The 4th Line Hockey Podcast #274 – The NHL Shutdown

While a lot has been happening in the sports world this week, Nick is having some very important blanket talk.


COVID-19 is expanding and the impact on the world of sports has grown as well. This week, we explore what it does mean for the NHL, including:

– will the season continue and do we get a Stanley Cup champion?

– what will happen with the salary cap this year?

– why aren’t teams paying their staff?

– how will the CBA extension change?

– when will the NHL draft be? When will free agency be? Will there even be an offseason?

– what will broadcasters do without sports?

We also cover what we’ll be doing now that there are no sports on TV. Do we have any new hobbies?

All this and more on episode 274 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.
