Last Word on Hockey presents The 4th Line Hockey Podcast #251 – The Undefeated. Carl and Nick 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 as well as spending some time in segments like The Elimination Station, The Rant Shack, and The Hot Seat. This week, a First Week NHL Recap.

Both Carl and Nick are supporters of undefeated teams. But how long will that last?

First Week NHL Recap

Diving into the undefeated, which of these teams will be the first to lose? It can’t be the Avalanche or Red Wings, can it?

And what about the yet to be victorious? Which of the winless teams are most primed for a bounce-back? Can we eliminate any from the playoffs already?

What impact have the new rule changes had on games so far? Are coaches challenges used differently this year? Does picking the side on icing really matter?

Carl plays a round of “For or Against” starring such things as the Toronto Maple Leafs, Drew Doughty and Gary Bettman.

Also, a trade breaks mid-show! Vladislav Namestnikov is off to Ottawa. But why?

With Dustin Byfuglien still away from the Winnipeg Jets, when will he return and what can the Jets do to fix their defence?

All this and more on episode 251 of the 4th Line Hockey Podcast!
