2019 NHL Free Agency

Carl is not okay with the Tyson Barrie trade to Toronto. Can Nick convince him that Nazem Kadri is a good enough return?

More trades happened as Phil Kessel headed to Arizona and Ottawa did Toronto a favor and took Nikita Zaitsev off there hands. But why?

And then….the offer sheet bomb was dropped! With Sebastian Aho signing the offer sheet with the Montreal Canadiens, why exactly did he do it? And why did they? And why wouldn’t Carolina match?

It’s then time to dive into the rest of the signings, including Artemi Panarin, Sergei Bobrovsky, Matt Duchene, Mats Zuccarello, Semyon Varlamov, Anders Lee, Robin Lehner, Joe Pavelski, Timo Meier and more!

Can someone help us with taxes? Please. Anyone.

All this and more on episode 237 of the 4th Line Hockey Podcast!
