The guys are back as the NHL Trade Deadline is almost here!
Last Word on Hockey is pleased to present our new hockey podcast, The 4th Line. Coming from Calgary, AB and Nanaimo, BC, Carl and Joel provide their own unique and fun view of hockey. Every week the guys share their thoughts on the news of the week, have a variety of guests from the world of hockey and spend some time in segments like Joel’s Counselling Couch, The Rant Shack, and The Hot Seat.
The guys start by breaking down the trades:
- Ben Bishop to the Los Angeles Kings
- Martin Hanzal to the Minnesota Wild
- Brian Boyle to the Toronto Maple Leafs
- Alexandre Burrows to the Ottawa Senators
- Jordie Benn to the Montreal Canadiens
- Michael Stone to the Calgary Flames
- Tomas Jurco to the Chicago Blackhawks
- Patrick Eaves to the Anaheim Ducks
- Ron Hainsey to the Pittsburgh Penguins
They then touch on the recent trend of aggression in hockey, with the addition of the Anaheim Ducks’ Twitter feed’s reaction to the Ryan Kesler vs Jeff Carter fight, the AHL hallway fight, and a college player fighting a referee. Joel has tips on how curb the aggression and that tip is using a meat injector. They wrap by previewing the trade deadline to come and pick the Pavel Bure’s of the Week.
