The 4th Line Podcast #167 – Eric Lindros Jersey Retired, Red Wings Re-Build
The guys are back and are recording in the midst of the Colorado Avalanche versus the Toronto Maple Leafs. This is Joel’s first time watching the Avalanche during their winning streak. What does he think of the new Avalanche? Can they actually win with Jonathan Bernier in net? All this and more as their friendship takes a great testing.
Carl had a very unique conversation with Micah Blake McCurdy, the man behind hockeyviz.com, taking a look at what it’s truly like to develop a mathematical model behind hockey.
Next up, the guys up put a new team in the Elimination Station. But first, they have a new jingle! Who ends up being eliminated this week? (Spoiler: It’s the Detroit Red Wings)
