Last Word on Hockey presents The 4th Line Hockey Podcast #252 – The Giving of Thanks. 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. This week they look at new Vancouver Canucks captain Bo Horvat, struggling teams in New Jersey and Chicago, and undefeated teams in Edmonton and Colorado.

Struggles in New Jersey, Bo Horvat named Captain

On a Thanksgiving afternoon, Carl and Nick have much to be thankful for, including Cinnabon.

The Chicago Blackhawks and New Jersey Devils are still winless. After a seemingly successful offseason, what does New Jersey need to do to get things on track? Does a change behind the bench need to happen?

There are still two undefeated teams left in the league as well: Edmonton and Colorado. Can Carl’s team be the last to lose? Which of these opening performances is most sustainable?

With Bo Horvat being named the captain of the Vancouver Canucks, was that a good choice and how important is the role of the captain?

Brayden Schenn and Alex DeBrincat signed contract extensions, which got lost in the chaos of the opening week of the NHL season.

Nick takes Carl through a spin league reflecting on what each team has to give thanks for.
