No. 317 - Smörgoåliesbord 2021!!
It's the annual Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast Smörgoåliesbord!! Feast your ears on this two hour-plus episode in which we partake in our annual tradition of tiering every freaking gosh-darned dadblasted goalie in the league for your fantasy hockey draft, in the stubborn belief that there is any possibility that past goalie performance and our guts can help predict future goalie success and failure. The episode begins with a crash course in why we tier and the numbers Brian uses to evaluate goalies and project their performances in the season ahead. From there, Elan and Brian place 68 goaltenders into 7 tiers (and 4 sub-tiers!), using analytics and gut to justify every single choice as best they can.

No. 313 - Second Attempt In Learning
On this episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast, it's time for us to hold ourselves accountable-- again!-- for all we predicted and projected way, way, way, way, way, way back in the summer of 2019. Elan and Brian have compared their 2019-20 NHL fantasy skater projections against what actually ended up happening. In last week's show, we looked at players who exceeded our expectations by the most; this week, we look at the players whose output was closest to our projections, working to learn whether we were really good or just lucky. We then move on to doing our best to explain and understand the players who underperformed our projections by the greatest amount. We revisit direct quotes (and arguments) from our 2019-20 Audio Almanac and look under the hood to see if we were wrong to be so high on a player, or if a player was wrong to score so many fewer points than they should have.
