The 4th Line Hockey Podcast #198 – Erik Karlsson Trade, Steve Yzerman Steps Down

With the pre-season starting, the NHL decided to give us a busy week of off ice news!

Superstar defenseman Erik Karlsson was traded from the Ottawa Senators to the San Jose Sharks. Which leads to questions about why the Sens did it, where Karlsson ends up and how Pierre Dorion still is a general manager.

Steve Yzerman stepped down as the general manager of the Tampa Bay Lightning. Where does he end up and where does it leave the Lightning?

Henrik Zetterberg retired from the Detroit Red Wings, but Joel isn’t buying it.

Tyler Seguin signed an extension with the Dallas Stars, but why isn’t he getting as much hype as other off-season signings?

Darnell Nurse and Josh Morrissey signed bridge deals. Which is more likely to stay with their team long term?

Rumours abound that the NHLPA will opt out of the current CBA deal, which means we get more Gary Bettman. Yeah……….

Austin Watson was suspended. Good.

Jake Dotchin was released by the Tampa Bay Lightning. Does this set a precedent for the future?
