Carl and Joel are back with the latest from around the NHL!

With the San Jose Sharks underperforming expectations, does that mean that it’s a good time to swim with sharks? Doubtful. But don’t tell a man in Toronto that.

With Elias Pettersson concussed, and Mike Matheson suspended, Eric Francis chose to turn the injury into a joke. Is this a sign of hockey culture or one person’s poor choice

With Frederik Andersen, who will the Toronto Maple Leafs turn to in net if Freddie is out long? And how worried is Joel about William Nylander this week?

The Colorado Avalanche claimed Marko Dano on waivers. Does it matter?

The Edmonton Oilers claim to be in search of a defenseman. Again. But what will they give up in a trade?

Staying in the Pacific division, it’s time for a spin through the Calgary Flames, Vegas Golden Knights and Anaheim Ducks. Sure, the sample size is small, but can these teams be expected to play like this the entire season?

They also pick their Pavel Bure Must Watch Games of the Week!

All this and more on a episode 202 of the 4th Line Hockey Podcast.
