No. 231 - Couture Club
Hello, hello, hello! It's another spring series edition of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast! In this show's first half, Elan and Brian are inspired by the happenings of the Stanley Cup Playoffs' second round to discuss the rich irony of the Hurricanes goaltending, the pumpkin-ing of the Islanders goaltending, and the futures of a couple forwards on each team who had standout seasons for reasons both good and bad. They also try to nip any speculation on the St. Louis Blues' PP1 quarterback in the bud, give appropriate praise to one established and one up-and-coming Star, speculate on the potential of a repeat situation in the Bruins' crease next year, and wonder whether a Predators stud is actually that. In the second half, we kick off our Almanac review and self-evaluation, where we look back at our projections to celebrate the hits and understand and learn from the misses. To begin, we go easy on ourselves, looking at the player point projections on which we were furthest apart from other projectors, but ended up being right about. Don't worry... we'll hold ourselves fully accountable for the ones we got wrong in the offseason episodes to come. This episode was prepared with great help from @fantasyref, who sent us all their data on how we did on our projections, as well as how our projections stacked up to all the others. Check out their site and this year's rankings! And finally.. we announced on this episode that the Keeping Karlsson Audio Almanac will be returning for the 2019-20 season! You can pre-order yours at keepingkarlsson.com/almanac. (If you didn't listen to the 2018-19 Almanac and want to check it out, it's now available on a pay-what-you-want basis.) Players discussed on this episode include Petr Mrazek, Curtis McElhinney, Robin Lehner, Jaccob Slavin, Anders Lee, Brock Nelson, Logan Couture, Tomas Hertl, Timo Meier, Vince Dunn, Alex Pietrangelo, Tyler Seguin, Roope Hintz, Tuukka Rask, Jaroslav Halak, Filip Forsberg, Andreas Athanasiou, Jakub Vrana, Tom Wilson, Jon Carlson, Nathan MacKinnon, Evgeni Dadonov, Jack Eichel and more.  * * * Like what you hear?

No. 230 - In The Midnight Grubauer
Don't get upset: it's a the first summer spring series episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast! Unlike the Lightning, Penguins, Flames and Jets, Elan and Brian come through with the goods as they review and construe the surprising results pouring in from the first round of the 2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs so far. They have a look at both sides of the upsets to see which players might be most responsible, and which teams may have deserved better fates. Then, Jade and Lewis of @avgtimeonice don their best red carpet attire to present the Keeping Karlsson Ultimate Patron Fantasy League Year End Awards, aka the KKUPYs, to recognize the biggest splashes and crashes that happened in the KKUPFL this year. The episode wraps with our belated tributes to those who won and lost in the final weeks of the 2018-19 Fantasy Hockey Season. Players discussed on this episode include Mike Smith, Nathan MacKinnon, Cale Makar, Tyson Barrie, Sam Girard, Philipp Grubauer, Johnny Gaudreau, Elias Lindholm, Andrei Vasilevskiy, Matt Duchene, Sergei Bobrovsky, Artemi Panarin, Cam Atkinson, Jordan Eberle, Robin Lehner, Matt Murray, Evgeni Malkin, Alex DeBrincat, Martin Jones, Patrik Laine, Jordan Binnington, Jake Allen, Mark Stone, Max Pacioretty, Paul Stastny, Shea Theodore and more.  * * * Like what you hear?

No. 229 - Hurdy Gurdy Mantha
It's all over but the crying-- tears of championship joy, we hope, as we tie a bow on the 2018-19 Fantasy Hockey season in this new episode of the Keeping Karlsson Hockey podcast! We recount the MVPs and L(east)VPs of your fantasy playoff matchups, and search within the last two weeks for signs of things to come next year. We also try to divine a lesson or two that we can learn about managing our teams through the season and into the playoffs to help us get even better for next year. Then, it's time for some classic experimental KK action, where Elan and Brian share their thoughts and predictions on the 2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs the only way they know how: a live fantasy draft of their teams for the annual Keeping Karlsson Playoff Patron Box Pool (KKPPBP). They also drop tidbits of fantasy playoff philosophy along the way. Listen and feel the thrill as they recite the names of the players in each box, and then offer their semi-coherent reasoning for liking one more than the rest. Even better, join the pool yourself by becoming a patron (at any level! even $1) of Keeping Karlsson for the duration of the playoffs. And, fear not: Elan and Brian will still be bringing you brand new episodes of Keeping Karlsson all through the playoffs and summer, as they always do! Stick with us for all the hindsight, foresight, and continued analysis of the latest NHL news and notes that'll help you get set to win your pool (again??) next year. Episodes will be released bi-weekly, which means you can expect the next one to land on your device on April 22. Players discussed on this episode include Anthony Mantha, Tyler Bertuzzi, Dylan Larkin, Andreas Athanasiou, Filip Hronek, Taro Hirose, Filip Zadina, Oliver Bjorkstrand, David Savard, Josh Anderson, Zach Werenski, Leon Draisaitl, David Pastrnak, Alex Radulov, Tyler Seguin, Jamie Benn, Mikhail Sergachev, Dougie Hamilton, Sergey Bobrovsky, Darcy Kuemper, Jack Campbell, Alex Georgiev, Philipp Grubauer, Patrik Laine, Elias Lindholm, Elias Pettersson, Brock Boeser, Ryan Suter, Shayne Gostisbehere and more.  * * * Like what you hear?

It's part two of your Championship Final, or it's the prequel to your 2019-20 title pursuit-- either way, this brand new episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast has data, analyses and factoids for everyone! On this edition, Elan and Brian begin with a quick re-hash of last week's streaming madness bracket, holding themselves accountable for the choices they may or may not have made. They then look ahead to this week's best streaming options to help you bring your championship home, and how some situations may have some spillover effect into next season. They also play a game of "Can I Drop Him?", where they bring up a bunch of names who've potentially been rostered all year but who might have little chance of contributing over the season's last six days. Before the episode wraps, they pay tribute to the teams who've won fantasy championships in 2018-19, and wish a Happy Father's Day to those we've lost along the way.  Players discussed on this episode include Alex Kerfoot, Gabriel Landeskog, Tyson Barrie, J.T.

No. 225 - Yes We McCann
Have you heard of the latest genre of fantasy hockey podcast? It's called streamo! And this episode of the Keeping Karlsson Hockey Podcast is a pioneer of the scene, giving you all the news and analysis you need to get an edge ahead of the biggest weeks of your season. Elan and Brian are joined by Stream Scheme's Davey B, and together the trio talks about how they tweak their strategies for the fantasy playoffs, and which decent and perfectly rosterable players might not cut it with bad schedules next week. They also cover the flipside: players who are normally FA fodder who suddenly look attractive because of some extra games played they can offer you over the first part of the week. Also: what happened to Jimmy Vesey? Do we have a tandem in St. Louis? Does someone really need to score in New Jersey? Can anyone continue scoring in Anaheim? ..and, of course, plenty more. Don't follow Dave on Twitter, but if you get the desire, listen until he end of the show for his handle. Players discussed on this episode include Travis Sanheim, Phil Danault, Justin Williams, Jonathan Drouin, Josh Leivo, Brock Boeser, Elias Pettersson, Bo Horvat, Craig Smith, Mikael Granlund, Colin Miller, Mark Stone, Anze Kopitar, Drew Doughty, Dustin Brown, Nazem Kadri, Andreas Johnsson, Kasperi Kapanen, Jimmy Vesey, Vladislav Namestnikov, Mika Zibanejad, Pavel Buchnevich, Filip Chytil, Brett Howden, Pierre-Luc Dubois, Josh Anderson, Kyle Palmieri, Travis Zajac, Jakub Voracek, Travis Konecny, Nolan Patrick, Oskar Lindblom, Jack Eichel, Sam Reinhart, Conor Sheary, Gabriel Landeskog, Nathan MacKinnon, Mikko Rantanen, J.T.

No. 224 - Enter Sanheim
Hello, and welcome!, to a brand new episode of the million-times-downloaded Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast! The road to two million downloads begins now. Will we get there before the end of the season? With the benefit of having a full week of games played since the NHL trade deadline, Elan and Brian share their picks for the players who've seen their values rise the highest and fall the lowest as a result of all the dominoes falling not 7 days ago. The guys review the latest line combos on all affected teams, and pick out situations that they're liking and not liking for both team and player. Your intrepid hosts also discuss the aptitude of a Hurricanes top sixer, the unreliability of forwards in Tampa Bay and Pittsburgh, the baffling case of one particular Blue Jacket holding down top power play deployment, the disappearance of a recently emerged blue-liner in Montreal, the quiet triumphs of an under-the-radar Penguin forward and Blues defenseman, and their serious, deep concerns about whether Ottawa or New Jersey will ever score again. Players discussed on this episode include Thomas Chabot, Jimmy Vesey, Mika Zibanejad, Anthony Mantha, Anthony Duclair, Bryan Little, Nik Ehlers, Patrik Laine, Alex Tuch, Mark Stone, Brandon Pirri, Yanni Gourde, Tyler Johnson, Ondrej Palat, J.T.

Trade deadline-- more like trade aliveline, am I right?? Welcome to the 2019 NHL Trade Deadline edition of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast, where Elan is joined by guest co-host and Dobber Prospects content editor Peter Harling to break down the impacts of all the deals made from a fantasy perspective.

As usual, we remember that the trade deadline isn't the be all/end all, as the guys take a trip through the latest injuries, outjuries, line changes, hot streaks and cold streaks to find the contenders to be excited about and pretenders to avoid as you fine-tune your lineups for the fantasy playoffs.  Players discussed on this episode include Matt Duchene, Ryan Dzingel, Pierre-Luc Dubois, Keith Kinkaid, Joonas Korpisalo, Josh Anderson, Vitaly Abramov, Thomas Chabot, Brady Tkachuk, Mark Stone, Erik Brannstrom,  Mats Zuccarello, Ben Lovejoy, Jamie Benn, John Klingberg, Ryan Strome, Jimmy Vesey, Anthony Duclair, Wayne Simmonds, P.K.

No. 222 - Kuch Coma
Good morning-- and if we don't see you, good afternoon, good evening and good night! Rather than their usual Sunday evening schedule, Elan and Brian go straight from their morning coffee to breaking down the biggest fantasy news and impacts of the week on this edition of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast, which results in at least one take that has aged very poorly in the 12 hours between recording and releasing this episode.  Our first take of the show, however, is evergreen, as we look at a Shark swimming towards point-per-game status and some of the supporting cast he's working with. We also argue about whether a contract can ever be considered good even when all signs pointed to it being bad at the moment it was signed. We then talk about broken thumb recovery times, a pair of pretty boring trades unlikely to have a whole lot of fantasy impact, some Devils doing uncharacteristic things, some Avalanche players playing out some uncharacteristically cold strings, the newest lucky guy to be playing with the league's best scorer, a rising figure on the Philadelphia blueline, a surprising closeness between the value of two Hurricanes forwards, and a whole lot more. Players discussed on this episode include Erik Karlsson, Kevin Labanc, Joe Thornton, Joonas Donskoi, Marc-Edouard Vlasic, Evander Kane, David Pastrnak, Danton Heinen, Jake DeBrusk, Tuukka Rask, Jaroslav Halak, Kevin Boyle, Ryan Miller, Justin Schultz, Patric Hornqvist, Nico Hischier, Marcus Johansson, Jesper Bratt, Kyle Palmieri, Cory Schneider, Devan Dubnyk, Corey Crawford, Collin Delia, Jeff Carter, Tyler Toffoli, Cam Talbot, Anthony Stolarz, Brian Elliott, Mikko Koskinen, Carter Hart, Ryan Spooner, Sam Gagner, Oscar Klefbom, Darnell Nurse, Nathan MacKinnon, Mikko Rantanen, Gabriel Landeskog, Tyson Barrie, Nikita Kucherov, Yanni Gourde, Tyler Johnson, Ondrej Palat, J.T. Miller, Brandon Pirri, Alex Tuch, Max Pacioretty, Shea Theodore, Colin Miller, Nate Schmidt, David Rittich, Mike Smith, Matthew Tkachuk, Elias Lindholm, Alexandar Georgiev, Travis Sanheim, Devon Toews, Anders Lee, Sebastian Aho, Teuvo Teravainen, Nino Niederreiter, Tyler Myers, Reilly Smith, Ryan Murray, Alex Galchenyuk, Jordan Oesterle, Oliver Ekman-Larsson, Clayton Keller more. * * * Like what you hear?

No. 221 - When You Be Leivo
So many third wheels, you'd think we're talking tricycles on this brand new episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast. First, Elan and Brian take a look at whether a coaching change Anaheim actually brings either coaching or a change to the fortunes of struggling Ducks who've lost their quack. Then, they sift through the latest news, injuries, outjuries, streaks and slumps in the NHL, highlighting the most important and integral info for the success of your fantasy hockey team. Specifically, the guys produce a laundry list of third wheels-- otherwise unremarkable players who are playing alongside two bona-fide scoring stars-- and rank them in order of desirability for this week and beyond. Elan deploys his weekly team ranking request on the hot-again Montreal forward group, and he also continues to performatively fight the cognitive dissonance caused by Josh Bailey production. Also, we consider the Western Conference playoff picture, what John Tortorella might enjoy dreaming about, Patrik Laine's next contract, the crease sadness in Edmonton and New Jersey, the legitimacy of Canadiens dynasties, and drafting differences over the last two decades.  Players discussed on this episode include Ryan Getzlaf, Corey Perry, Rickard Rakell, John Gibson, Oscar Klefbom, Darnell Nurse, Alex Chiasson, Cam Talbot, Mikko Koskinen, Drake Caggiula, Brent Seabrook, Patrick Kane, Cory Schneider, Keith Kinkaid, Kyle Palmieri, Blake Coleman, Nico Hischier, Andrew Shaw, Jonathan Drouin, Phil Danault, Brendan Gallagher, Max Domi, Tomas Tatar, Jesperi Kotkaniemi, Kyle Turris, Alex Edler, Ben Hutton, Troy Stecher, Josh Leivo, Eric Staal, Nick Bjugstad, Bryan Rust, Jared McCann, Danton Heinen, David Pastrnak, Jaroslav Halak, Tuukka Rask, Michael Dal Colle, Anthony Beauvillier, Josh Bailey, Brock Nelson, Ryan Pulock, Jason Pominville, Sam Reinhart, Seth Jones, Nick Foligno, Boone Jenner, Josh Anderson, Patrik Laine, Jack Roslovic, Anders Nisson, Craig Anderson, Aaron Ekblad, Vincent Trocheck, Brian Boyle, Jeff Carter, Tyler Toffoli, Anze Kopitar, Andreas Johnsson, Zach Hyman, William Nylander and more. * * * Like what you hear?

We don't get no bye weeks over here-- even though everyone else is kicking back, we're at it again for another new episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast! If you thought there was no NHL news, notes and analysis to discuss during the all star break that could help you get an edge for your fantasy team.. you know us better than that. Elan and Brian begin the week by considering the possibility that regression-- gasp!-- just ain't gonna come to a player who has successfully avoided it for 45-50 games, and that morphs into talk of the Gambler's Fallacy and coin-flipping and the colours of roulette wheels. From there, they review where goalie loyalties might lie in Montreal, Nashville, Colorado and Washington, dig into some sad slumpers in Nashville and Winnipeg, herald some happy hotties in Calgary, Carolina, San Jose, Los Angeles and New York, discuss how Timo Meier can make history, and also share some names of players who were great not so long ago, but then blew it last year, but now are back to doing their thing in 2018-19.  Players discussed on this episode include Carey Price, Philip Danault, P.K. Subban, Ryan Ellis, Ryan Johansen, Pekka Rinne, Juuse Saros, Semyon Varlamov, Philipp Grubauer, Carl Soderberg, Braden Holtby, Pheonix Copley, Jaccob Slavin, Noah Hanifin, Nino Niederreiter, Frank Vatrano, Roberto Luongo, Auston Matthews, T.J.

No. 209 - Chytil Mania
On this episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fanasy Hockey Podcast, Elan and Brian debate whether Tom Wilson is or isn't a good guy, whether Mike Hoffman's points outweigh his 'locker room' effects, and whether you should gloat on twitter via infinite retweeting when you might not even be right about Max Domi.  But it's chock full of fantasy hockey stuff too, of course! We revise our projections for a couple Flyers forwards (including an early projection concession from Brian), consider the value of Tampa Bay's leading point-getter, figure out what to do with some of those pesky guys we're still waiting on in Anaheim and Vegas, and plenty more. There's also an explanation of how you, too, can bring the #FillyHeat. Shoutout to the @avgtimeonice crew for being the architects of the next big thing.

No. 207 - Aberg! Stream Ahead!
Goalie confusion abounds on the newest episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast! Why are some of the best goalies actually awful so far? Why are some of the oldest 'tenders dodging regression for their 3rd year in a row? How badly should you want an awful goalie on one of the best teams in the league? What #2s are potentially morphing into #1b? We also flip through a bunch of recently outjured players to see if our projections have changed for them since their last NHL action-- including a PPQB and one-time starting goale in the Atlantic, an old soul in San Jose, and a finally returned Blue. Also, Brian mistakes Juuso Riikola's first name for Juusi. Please accept our sincerest apologies. Join our Fanduel Weekly Listener League! Registration opens Tuesday around 10am ET.

No. 202 - KKUPFL 2018 Championship Tier Auction...
This episode of the Keeping Karlsson Hockey Podcast features the live recording, play-by-play and colour commentary of the Keeping Karlsson Ultimate Patron Fantasy League Championship Tier's auction draft! The draft features 14 owners, drafting from 6 different countries and on 3 different continents, building their teams to compete for ultimate glory in the most prestigious fantasy hockey league on the planet. Elan and Brian are joined by  co-hosts, Keeping Karlsson patron personalities and KKUPFL veterans Ben B and Jade B, who offer their live takes on all the action and offer up biographical nuggets and horoscopes for the Tier 1 drafters. Please bear in mind that this was recorded live! And so it includes many wonderful hiccups, snafus, bloopers and even a botched start to the draft, because nothing ever goes smoothly when you most need it to. "Elan, can you pause" is repeated often, until we discover that Yahoo only lets you pause a draft 5 times, making bathroom breaks for the drafters an extra strategical consideration and challenge. Why, Yahoo?! You can peek at the draft results at this link: https://hockey.fantasysports.yahoo.com/hockey/2831/draftresults.  Also: the Keeping Karlsson NHL 2018-19 Audio Almanac is out now! Elan and Brian slaved over hot mics and keyboards for weeks to put together the world's first audio fantasy hockey guide. It all adds up to a comprehensive and exhaustive 32 chapters, 27+ hours of content, 285 player points projections, 65 goalies tiered, and too many arguments to count to help you win your fantasy pool and just know pretty much everything about every relevant player in the entire NHL. Head to keepingkarlsson.com/almanac to purchase, where you'll also find a link to download the first chapter for free. This is also a good place to mention that Keeping Karlsson patrons get 20% off their Almanac purchase! Players discussed on this episode include all 252 players drafted, and then a few more for good measure. * * * Like what you hear?

No. 200 - The Karlsson Also Rises
First things first: Elan and Brian have not traded Karlsson. They are still keeping Karlsson. This podcast remains Keeping Karlsson. Anyone who does that is smart. Anyone who doesn't, particularly in actual real life, and particularly without getting anything of remotely similar value in return, is not.  So anyway, yeah, here's another episode of the Keeping Karlsson Hockey Podcast. It's a pretty good one. It was supposed to be all about Yahoo Average Draft Pick rankings, which we were going to comb through and then pick out some guys who we thought were being picked either too high or were bargains being picked as low as they were. But then this other thing came up. So instead, Brian rants for a bit at the start. Then Elan refocuses on the fantasy fallout of Karlsson to San Jose. Then Elan invokes a bit of a Smörgoåliesbord redux by wanting to tinker amongst tiers based on recent preseason news. Brian is chagrinned by this and wants to refocus on the trade. Then they look at the fallout of Karlsson gone from Ottawa (spoiler: it's not good). Afterwards, the guys do get around to combing Yahoo ADPs as originally planned, highlighting a handful of market inefficiences on both the high and low ends based on fantasy drafting trends to date.  Also: the Keeping Karlsson NHL 2018-19 Audio Almanac is out now! Elan and Brian slaved over hot mics and keyboards for weeks to put together the world's first audio fantasy hockey guide. It all adds up to a comprehensive and exhaustive 32 chapters, 27+ hours of content, 285 player points projections, 65 goalies tiered, and too many arguments to count to help you win your fantasy pool and just know pretty much everything about every relevant player in the entire NHL.

After Brian beat Elan in sudden death OT for the Keeping Karlsson Bubble Hockey Championship that took place at the tail-end of the Ottawa listener meetup, Elan was very sad while Brian did a victory dance.

Brian, being such a wonderful and excellent co-host, and also the best bubble hockey player of the two and thus feeling sorry for his friend who wanted to be champion so badly, obliged.

No. 150 - Yyyyesquicentennial!
Welcome to the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast's sesquicentennial episode! The free agent frenzy has slowed to a trickle, but we are bursting with takes on how player production around the league will be affected. Of course, our analysis goes beyond just the player that has moved-- we go up and down depth charts to scope out roster-wide effects, including the blue lines, top sixes, creases and power-play units in New York, Washington, New Jersey, Dallas, Buffalo, Florida, Detroit, Los Angeles and Toronto, to name a few. The last couple weeks have also seen plenty of address changes for goaltenders, which means a handful of new tandems and new opportunities for goalies to push and be pushed for playing teams. Elan and Brian name the 'tenders who are better off for their move, others who should be looking over the shoulder, and still others who could be platooning from the get-go-- particularly in Winnipeg and Philadelphia. Remember, we've got our summer patronage special on from now til September: become a $1 patron of the show, and you'll get the full slate of $5 patron perks, including access to the famous patrons-only Facebook group! Plus, you'll be supporting the show :) Players discussed on this episode include Kevin Shattenkirk, Mika Zibanejad, John Carlson, Andre Burakovsky, Brett Connolly, Jakub Vrana, Pavel Zacha, Nico Hischier, Marcus Johansson, Damon Severson, Cory Schneider, Mike Cammelleri, Darcy Kuemper, Jonathan Quick, Steve Mason, Connor Hellebuyck, Brian Elliott, Michal Neuvirth, Anders Nilsson, Ryan Miller, John Gibson, Antti Niemi, Jonathan Bernier, Ondrej Pavelec, Herik Lundqvist, Chad Johnson, Eddie Lack, Mike Smith, Alex Radulov, Martin Hanzal, Jason Spezza, Brendan Gallagher, Ales Hemsky, Philip Danault, Jason Pominville, Radim Vrbata, Evgeni Dadonov, Vincent Trocheck, Henrik Haapala, Aaron Ekblad, Keith Yandle, Trevor Daley, Mike Green, Niklas Kronwall, James van Riemsdyk, Tyler Bozak, Jussi Jokinen, Patrick Sharp, Justin Williams, Chris Kunitz, Joe Thornton, Patrick Marleau and more.   * * *   You might have heard that our friend Darryl Dobbs (aka Dobber) recently announced that he has been diagnosed with a rare bone marrow disorder.

It only takes a few minutes-- Canadian listeners can follow this link to Canadian Blood Services' OneMatch program, and American listeners can head over to Be The Match.  Elan and Brian begin this episode by parsing another offseason blockbuster in Montreal, considering whether the change of scenery will be a boon or bane for Jonathan Drouin, and what the short- and long-term prospects for Mikhail Sergachev look like in Tampa. They also argue over whether Mike Smith can deliver on the hopes thatthe Calgary Flames have for him. They then move on to share a couple quick thoughts on the expansion draft protection lists released today, scratching their heads over the choices of a couple teams in particular. For the rest of the show, the guys pick out some of the most pleasant production surprises of the 2016-17 campaign, and dig in to figure out whether they can do it all over again next year. The discussion includes a Bruin with a knack for scoring, a newly elite centreman in the Pacific, a pair of forwards outdoing Minnesota's scoring reputation, a defenseman who just needs an opportunity, and a goalie returned to stardom in the Metropolitan.

No. 147 - Larkin in the Shadows
Unlike its featured subjects, this brand new episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast doesn't disappoint! This edition signals the official beginning of our 2017 Offseason Series, where we dig deep to explore whether you can expect the player trends of 2016-17 to keep trending or trail off in 2017-18. First on the docket is a group of players who were so off their games, they shouldn't even be counted on to put the point in disappointment. Elan and Brian pick apart the numbers and consider the context that led to woof-worthy performances from a perennial top ten Flyer forward, a King on an island, an apparently one-handed Coyote blue-liner, a flickering Flames defenseman, a sophomore slumper in Detroit, the no longer heir apparents to the Red Wings and Devils #1 jobs, an undertapped Oiler, and more.

Elan's away, but Brian's not alone on this brand new episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast! This edition of the show kicks off with a conversation with tsn.ca's Travis Yost in which we touch on each of the conference finalists, including a weigh-in on the merits of the 'boring' and 'lucky' labels being applied to Ottawa by its detractors. We also talk coaching acumen in Pittsburgh and Anaheim, Duck luck, Nashville's most important defenders, and some of the PP QB roles around the league that may be open to competition. Then it's on to Brian's chat with FanRag Managing NHL Editor and hockey-graphs.com contributor Carolyn Wilke, in which we go deep on all things Dallas to figure out whether Benn, Seguin, Klingberg & co. are ready for a bounceback next year, and then turn our gaze to the more illuminating performances from this year’s now-concluded world championships.

No. 145 - Pageau Face
Welcome to another episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast! In early May, small news seems big, and we blow up some of the recent roster changes around the league, including a new number one contender in Carolina, a potential leading scorer in Vegas, a player to be named soon in New Jersey, a freshly-inked blueliner in Toronto, and a new coach in Vancouver. Elan and Brian then turn to the present playoff rounds to find the players who are hot and not, and then discussing the impact, if any, on their fantasy futures. The list includes a quiet rebound season and the next best players in Anaheim, a skyrocketing C and a pair of mirror-ish images in Edmonton, depth D stepping up in St Louis and Nashville, a playoff hero in Ottawa, the best Rangers to draft next year, a couple of elite but aging Pittsburgh forwards, and the newest member of Washington's third line.

Round 1 wasn't over when this episode began, but it was by the time we were done, and we've got a whole slate of early lessons learned on this episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast! Elan and Brian start off by attempting to rationalize all the surprises we've seen in the playoffs thus far, including two top teams going out with barely so much as a whimper. Playoff storylines aplenty are raised and dissected, including a couple huge goaltending performances, the emergence of a new member of Pittsburgh's top powerplay unit, the resurgence of a Cup-winning vet, and the possibility of Mr. Game 7 really being a thing. There have also been a litany of coaching moves made already, and we take a look at a couple players looking most likely to be affected at this point, including two franchise cornerstones in Los Angeles, a face-saving goaltender in Buffalo, and a pair of first round fantasy picks in Dallas. This episode also includes a look at what the offseason has in store for newly eliminated teams, including some difficult choices to be made in Chicago, an ongoing netminder conundrum in Calgary, and some soul-searching in Minnesota.

Well, here we are-- the final 2016-17 regular season episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast! (Elan wants you to know that, if you're a first time listener, this episode of the show is more lightly edited than usual, so expect a few uncharacteristic fumbles and pauses that normally don't make it to air outside of the live broadcast) Elan and Brian wrap up regular season business by combing the league leaders lists for a whole bunch of categories and coming up with a few interesting stories from the season to hone in on, including the unveiling of a recent 2nd overall pick's true star power down the stretch, the same for a slightly less recent 3rd overall pick, an historic season for a goal-hungry rookie, a debate between two Russian forwards who are good for at least 75 points, a Hurricane who broke the 60 point mark, a few goalies who've made a solid case for changing tiers, and the other underappreciated Bruin. Dobber Hockey's Managing Editor Steve Laidlaw came by to tell us about his 2016-17 fantasy all-stars at every position, and then some. He detailed his methodology for picking his all-stars, and also offered a look into his crystal ball for what this heralded group can offer next year, and how soon/late you should make a move for them in your 2017-18 drafts. Then, in a Keeping Karlsson first, the guys are joined by 6 KKUPFL champions to live-draft an 8 team, 6 player playoff pool. They also share some of their playoff pool drafting strategies later on in the show. And finally, they mourn the final week losses of a handful of teams, while celebrating the victories of a joyously long list of champion listeners. Congrats to everyone who won their pool this year! Oh, and also, join our playoff pool! All you need to do is become a $1 patron of the show, and you'll also get full patron perks along with that $1/month, including access to the famous patrons-only Facebook group!  And last thing-- promise!-- our shows through playoffs and offseason are bi-weekly, so expect your next episode to come in two weeks, right around April 24.  Thank you for listening all season long, and hope to see you in our playoff pool and patrons-only Facebook group!

It's another make or break week, and so we make another episode that breaks all the latest fantasy hockey news on the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast! In Outjuries, Elan and Brian delve into the fantasy impact of a return of a top line forward in Buffalo and the suspension of a key blueline cog, as well as temper immediate expectations from a high end Sen, consider upside versus steadiness on the Jets back end, speculate on how two healthy goalies will be rotated in both New Yorks, and lavish 2/3 of Tampa's top line with praise. Recent call-ups also get coverage here, as the guys fiure out what can be expected from two of the newest NHLers in Vancouver and Arizona. In Injuries, the Crosby line is hurting badly and looking for replacements, the Leafs may regret letting go of a crease replacement, the Bruins may have to turn to a career backup to carry them down the stretch, we neither endorse nor disapprove of potential moves for a Panthers forward, we get sad about the Stars, and dear god the St Louis depth chart is thin. In Hot Streaks, we look for value in the 5-game weeks coming for Nashville and Carolina, give a lukewarm kudos to a young New Jersey centreman, and set the record straight on our feelings about Leon Draisaitl. In Cold Streaks, there are a lot of guys that you'd never consider dropping earlier this year, but with just a week or two left, is there even a point to hanging onto them? This segment pays visits to slumpers in Columbus, Montreal, Buffalo, Colorado, Anaheim, Minnesota and Philadelphia. And all those goalies who blew it this week? We try to figure out if they'll do it to you all over again if given the chance. The episode once again ends with tributes to the fantasy teams we've lost along the way. Players discussed on this episode include Kyle Okposo, Jack Eichel, Jaroslav Halak, Thomas Greiss, Brayden Point, Nikita Kucherov, Dmitry Kulikov, Mark Stone, Carey Price, Richard Panik, Erik Karlsson, Kris Russell, Jacob Trouba, Dustin Byfuglien, Josh Morrissey, Evander Kane, Ryan O'Reilly, Mathieu Perreault, Bryan Little, Dan Girardi, Henrik Lundqvist, Antti Raanta, Vladislav Namestnikov, Martin Jones, Corey Crawford, Thomas Greiss, JF Berube, Andrew Ladd, Brock Boeser, Clayton Keller, Bryan Rust, Chris Kunitz, Connor Sheary, Frederik Andersen, Curtis McElhinney, Jhonas Enroth, Anton Khudobin, Tuukka Rask, Paul Stastny, Jaden Schwartz, Alex Steen, Jaromir Jagr, Jonathan Marchessault, Patrick Sharp, Adam Cracknell, Ales Hemsky, Aaron Dell, Sebastian Aho, Elias Lindholm, Philip Di Giuseppe, Teuvo Teravainen, Eddie Lack, Craig Smith, Colin Wilson, Ryan Ellis, Calle Jarnkrok, Pavel Zacha, Leon Draisaitl, Connor McDavid, Patrick Maroon, Eric Staal, Nick Foligno, Gabriel Landeskog, Cam Fowler, Sami Vatanen, Ryan Kesler, Corey Perry, Ryan Suter, Jakub Voracek and more.   * * *   Download this episode, subscribe, and review us on iTunes!   If you enjoy the show, please support future episodes by becoming a patron of Keeping Karlsson.    Keeping Karlsson patrons can join our patron-only Facebook group and take part in (and receive audio from) a monthly live, face-to-face and interactive Keeping Karlsson recording!   You can also support us by telling a friend, subscribing to and reviewing Keeping Karlsson on iTunes, and following us on Twitter (@keepingkarlsson).

No. 140 - Slavin Over a Hot Streak
For the still alive and the walking dead alike, Elan and Brian bring you the fantasy spin on all the latest NHL news in a brand new episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast! During your fantasy playoffs, players on the shelf can decrease your team's shelf life. The guys offer a multitude of ways to fight back against the injury ninja, including a new top line centreman and rookie winger in Chicago, a tenuously successful temporary starter in Anaheim, a blue chip defensive prospect with a bit of an opening in Winnipeg, and the latest whatshisname to skate with the Joes in San Jose. In this week's outjuries, we continue to wonder about one top six Penguin but are ready to cease wondering about another, wish for a connection that likely won't be in Washington while also celebrating their leading goal-scorer, increase the mentions per 60 of a Bruins top-niner, and fret over how low Boston's goaltending can go. This edition's hot streaks include a Professor Frink catchphrase, "Brian's Favourite Goalie", the other #66, a top nine Lightning player making the most of his ascendance to the top three, a Panther that we totally told you to let go of, the return to form of a Calder candidate defenseman, and a category-filling blueliner in the desert. For cold streaks, we visit the forward corps and goaltending in Minnesota, as well as a recently elite Flyer who has seen a bump down in deployment. In the more serious category of Snoozers, you might want to consider giving up on a Sabre that has been removed from a plum assignment and an Avalanche that is.. well, an Avalanche. Brian has a few final players in his mind, including a couple dormant forwards coming to life in Detroit, a vivacious but now dormant forward in Los Angeles, and a young goalie who is losing ground in his case to take over his team's starter job.   Players discussed on this episode include Artem Anisimov, Nick Schmaltz, John Hayden, Scott Darling, Corey Crawford, Jonathan Bernier, Rikard Rakell, Josh Morrissey, Jacob Trouba, Nik Ehlers, Blake Wheeler, Kyle Turris, Mark Borowiecki, Timo Meier, Tomas Hertl, Jake Guentzel, Conor Sheary, Sidney Crosby, Patric Hornqvist, Evgeni Malkin, Matt Murray, Andre Burakovsky, TJ Oshie, Ryan Spooner, Tuukka Rask, Jaccob Slavin, Eddie Lack, Cam Ward, Joshua Ho-Sang, Brayden Point, Thomas Vanek, Zack Werenski, Jaromir Jagr, Mark Stone, Jannik Hansen, Bobby Ryan, Jamie Benn, Jason Spezza, Alex Ovechkin, Marcus Johansson, Jeff Skinner, Jakob Chychrun, Oliver Ekman-Larsson, Morgan Rielly, Matt Dumba, Eric Staal, Mikael Granlund, Mikko Koivy, Jason Pominville, Zach Parise, Devan Dubnyk, Jakub Voracek, Ivan Provorov, Sam Reinhart, Tyler Ennis, Gabriel Landeskog, Dylan Larkin, Tanner Pearson, Tyler Toffoli, Gustav Nyquist, Tomas Tatar, Juuse Saros, and Andreas Athanasiou.   * * *   Download this episode, subscribe, and review us on iTunes!   If you enjoy the show, please support future episodes by becoming a patron of Keeping Karlsson.    Keeping Karlsson patrons can join our patron-only Facebook group and take part in (and receive audio from) a monthly live, face-to-face and interactive Keeping Karlsson recording!   You can also support us by telling a friend, subscribing to and reviewing Keeping Karlsson on iTunes, and following us on Twitter (@keepingkarlsson).

No. 139 - Streaky Weal Just a Tease?
Cross your heart and say your prayers, it's another cuss-free episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast! This week, Elan and Brian are feeling just peachy about the healthy returns of an apparent #1 goalie and a top line winger in Detroit, the apparently brief return of the Ducks' #1 goalie, and the hopefully fruitful return of a top line Canadien. But doggone it, even more players are off to the infirmary this week. The guys talk about the lineup and fantasy implications of injuries to a Metro starting goalie who was probably in need of rest anyway, a laundry list of Penguins, a struggling Panthers blueliner, a couple key pieces of Ottawa's top six, and a few key pieces of Tampa Bay's top nine. Bless the players whose production we can be thankful for, including a non-squeaky wheel in Philadelphia, several nondescript forwards in Carolina, a promoted hitter in Washington, a pair of persisting depth scorers in Columbus, and one of this year's stealthier breakouts. And, of course, we trust the hockey gods will shepherd back those players who may have lost their way, including a number one goalie not living up to his elite billing, and a King who is struggling far more than we'd anticipated. Players discussed on this episode include Jimmy Howard, Petr Mrazek, Gustav Nyquist, Henrik Zetterberg, James Reimer, Steve Mason, Sami Vatanen, Patrik Eaves, Ryan Getzlaf, John Gibson, Jonathan Bernier, Jhonas Enroth, Rickard Rakell, Alex Radulov, Henrik Lundqvist, Antti Raanta, Magnus Hellberg, Jake Guentzel, Connor Sheary, Patric Hornqvist, Carl Hagelin, Aaron Ekblad, Michael Matheson, Jason Demers, Jaromir Jagr, Jonathan Marchessault, Thomas Vanek, Jussi Jokinen, Reilly Smith, Kyle Turris, J.G. Pageau, Mark Stone, Alex Burrows, Craig Anderson, Devan Dubnyk, Sergei Bobrovsky, Ryan Spooner, Drew Stafford, Brayden Point, David Krejci, Michal Neuvirth, Sebastian Aho, Victor Rask, Teuvo Teravainen, Jordan Staal, Elias Lindholm, Jaccob Slavvin, Brett Pesce, Jordan Weal, Tom Wilson, Alex Ovechkin, Kevin Shattenkirk, John Carlson, Sam Gagner, Oliver Bjorkstrand, Josh Bailey, Andrew Ladd, Anders Lee, Nick Foligno, Cory Schneider, Tyler Toffoli, Tanner Pearson, Jarome Iginla and more.   * * *   Download this episode, subscribe, and review us on iTunes!   If you enjoy the show, please support future episodes by becoming a patron of Keeping Karlsson.    Keeping Karlsson patrons can join our patron-only Facebook group and take part in (and receive audio from) a monthly live, face-to-face and interactive Keeping Karlsson recording!   You can also support us by telling a friend, subscribing to and reviewing Keeping Karlsson on iTunes, and following us on Twitter (@keepingkarlsson).

No. 138 - Pet Rangelo Peeve
Like a new baby being born into the world, Elan and Brian are pushing out a brand new episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast! This week's show begins by sizing up most impactful and relevant players who've flown the coop since the trade deadline, and the players they may have displaced. This includes a visit to Washington and St. Louis's even strength and powerplay blueline setups, the blue paint situations for the Lightning and Kings, the top nine in Minnesota and Boston, defensive depth in Pittsburgh, and a couple floaters in Ottawa. The guys then shed light on those who've come out bruised and/or battered, including Florida's sort-of-but-not-so-much-anymore #1 goalie, a Devil we know, a Sabre that had just gotten rolling, and a Star that never really had a chance. We also pontificate on the healthy return of an Isle blueliner. Some players are hot this week! They include a lower-key sophomore and a once again promising forward in Buffalo, a couple Taylor Hall linemates, a Habs goalie who may also just be considered as being back to normal, a Flames goalie who we wonder whether this might be his normal, and a Calgary d-man who we wish it still could be his normal. Some players are cold this week. They include a top six Penguin who otherwise looks fantastic, a sobering season by a Coyotes defenseman that has cut back on taking shots, a Canes blueliner still taking shots but not getting anywhere, a New York top six/niner who has lost his early season sheen, and a couple of Avs forwards whose performances personify the mess in Colorado. Players discussed on this episode include Jonathan Quick, Ben Bishop, Peter Budaj, Andrei Vasilevskiy, Martin Hanzal, Kevin Shattenkirk, John Carlson, Matt Niskanen, Alex Pietrangelo, Colton Parayko, Alex Steen, Mark Streit, Connor Sheary, Chris Kunitz, Sidney Crosby, Patric Hornqvist, Valtteri Filppula, Steve Mason, Drew Stafford, Michal Neuvirth, Ryan Spooner, Frank Vatrano, Alex Burrows, Viktor Stalberg, Roberto Luongo, James Reimer, Thomas Vanek, Kyle Okposo, Evander Kane, Ryan O'Reilly, Jack Eichel, Michael Cammalleri, Travis Zajac, Kyle Palmieri, Taylor Hall, Antoine Roussel, Jason Spezza, Jiri Hudler, Ales Hemsky, Travis Hamonic, Josh Ho-Sang, Nate Prosser, Nick Leddy, Johnny Boychuk, Carey Price, Alex Radulov, Brian Elliott, Michael Ferland, Mark Giordano,  Oliver Ekman-Larsson, Mike Smith, Louis Domingue, Justin Faulk, Jacob Slavvin, Brett Pesce, Noah Hanifin, Matt Duchene, Gabriel Landeskog, Nathan MacKinnon, Mika Zibanejad and more.   * * *   Download this episode, subscribe, and review us on iTunes!   If you enjoy the show, please support future episodes by becoming a patron of Keeping Karlsson.    Keeping Karlsson patrons can join our patron-only Facebook group and take part in (and receive audio from) a monthly live, face-to-face and interactive Keeping Karlsson recording!   You can also support us by telling a friend, subscribing to and reviewing Keeping Karlsson on iTunes, and following us on Twitter (@keepingkarlsson).
