Last Word on Hockey is pleased to present our new hockey podcast, The 4th Line Podcast. 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.
Connor McDavid Signs, Bandwagon Teams and more!
The guys are back as they explore more of what Carl should do with his bandwagon team problem. What should he be looking for in a bandwagon team? What about cheering for a bandwagon team in the same division as the Avalanche? The listeners have their suggestions and Joel gives his thoughts on who he should cheer for.
They also break down the news of the week, including:
– Connor McDavid signs his contract with the Edmonton Oilers. How does this impact future signings that will happen? How much will the likes of Leon Draisaitl, John Tavares, Mitch Marner and Auston Matthews sign for?
– Alex Galchenyuk, Zach Hyman and more re-signed with their teams as the off-season signings continute to trickle in
Lastly, Carl and Joel talk about the current state of sports media as they look back on how we got here, where we’ll go and if they’re okay with the direction that sports media is going.
