The 4th Link Hockey Podcast #311 – The 2021 Central Division Preview

This week on The 4th Line Hockey Podcast, with the NHL almost back, it’s time to preview the Central division! But first, an update to an octopus news story from early 2020.

The NHL has modified the offside rule. Will it be for the better?

Zdeno Chara has signed with the Washington Capitals, but who will fill his vacancy with the Boston Bruins?

Pierre-Luc Dubois signed an extension with the Columbus Blue Jackets, but is apparently still not happy with the club. Will he find his way out?

Jonathon Toews is out for the Chicago Blackhawks, leaving an unfortunate and unexpected hole at center.

The AHL has put together a plan for this coming season. It’s small, but will have a significant impact on the NHL teams they support.

With Canada and the US destined to meet in the finals of the World Junior Hockey Championship, who have been the standout players thus far?

We also preview the new Central Division, which somehow now houses both Stanley Cup finalists.

All this and more on episode 311 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 4th line attitude: what they lack in finesse, they make up 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.
