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.

This is also a good place to mention that Keeping Karlsson patrons get 20% off their Almanac purchase! Players discussed on this episode include Erik Karlsson, Brent Burns, Evander Kane, Marc-Edouard Vlasic, Tomas Hertl, Timo Meier, Martin Jones, Aaron Dell, Jonathan Quick, Devan Dubnyk, Tukka Rask, Pekka Rinne, Jake Allen, Ville Husso, Corey Crawford, Cam Ward, Cory Schneider, Carter Hutton, Brian Elliott, Carter Hart, Michal Neuvirth, Thomas Chabot, Matt Duchene, Mark Stone, Chris Tierney, Brady Tkachuk and more. * * * Like what you hear?

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. As they said their goodbyes, Elan asked Brian to write the introductory text for this brand new episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast-- which features a listener mailbag, plus the latest injuries/outjuries/line changes/hot + cold streaks-- before the night was done. 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.

No. 148 - How You Drouin?
Welcome to another summer series episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast! Before we get to the content, you might have heard that our friend Darryl Dobbs (aka Dobber) recently announced that he has been diagnosed with a rare bone marrow disorder. In support, we encourage our listeners to sign up for their national bone marrow registries, or otherwise support bone marrow and blood donor programs. 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. 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!

No. 146 - Sens a Snore? / Brooding Stars, ft. Y...
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.

No. 143 - La Crème Nikita
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! Players discussed on this episode include Connor McDavid, Alex Ovechkin, Sidney Crosby, Jack Eichel, Leon Draisaitl, Nikita Kucherov, Vladimir Tarasenko, Auston Matthews, Jeff Skinner, Claude Giroux, Tyler Seguin, Patrice Bergeron, Adam Larsson, Mark Borowiecki, Cam Talbot, Sergei Bobrovsky, Robin Lehner, Devan Dubnyk, Matt Murray, Carey Price, Craig Anderson, Brad Marchand, Nicklas Backstrom, Conor Sheary, Mark Scheifele, Patrik Laine, Mikael Granlund, Viktor Arvidsson, David Pastrnak, Brent Burns, Erik Karlsson, Victor Hedman, Anton Stralman, Dougie Hamilton, Zach Werenski, Cam Atkinson, Justin Schultz, Kris Letang, Braden Holtby, Peter Budaj, Max Pacioretty, Jonathan Marchessault, Rickard Rakell, Patrick Eaves 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).

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.

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).

No. 136 - Bo-lieve!!
Injuries may have decimated Ottawa, and the guys begin by seeing how it may impact the able bodied players who can still take the ice. They also tip their cap to a couple d-men who've swapped an IR spot in Pittsburgh, and consider whether Claude Julien can bring a staggering Habs roster back to life. Then, a hotly anticipated rookie who couldn't impress at this season's outset is back for another kick at the can in Columbus, while teammates around him alternately slump and awaken. Outjuries double as snoozers, as the merits of activating or jettisoning a returning centreman in Dallas and a blueliner in Anaheim are debated, with a healthy but quiet-til-now Panthers defenseman thrown in for good measure. Meanwhile, the debate over whether a certain Ducks forward can maintain a 55+ point pace appears all but settled, and new lines in Anaheim lead to a depth chart search for fantasy value outside of the usual suspects.  In hot streaks, Brian thinks Elan's feeling confident about one Canuck too many. The segment also features a couple Coyotes forwards and defensemen are helpful for as long as they remain in the desert, an entire line reigniting a pretty great even-strength run in Detroit, an assist-happy Blue who Brian prefers as a goal-scorer, a 60+ point scorer starting to maybe look like one again, a doghouse escapee in Boston, Brent freaking Burns, and Elan pining over vintage Zetterberg. Goalies get some time in the spotlight, including thoughts on why the Blues goalies are suddenly keeping the red lamp from being lit, a Philadelphia goalie whose only hot in the category of 'games started', an apparently reliable Western Conference goalie who could be spelling his starter more often, an emerging title change in Florida, and a struggling Isles tender with rough waters ahead. Also, what the heck should you do with a couple struggling Jets as they enter their bye weeks? And which Jet forward should you pick up when they hit the ice again? Players discussed on this episode include Mark Stone, Kris Letang, Bo Horvat, Henrik Zetterberg, Alex Galchenyuk, Oliver Bjorkstrand, Jaden Schwartz, Martin Hanzal, Zach Werenski, Michal Neuvirth, Oscar Klefbom, Jordan Eberle, Thomas Greiss, Aaron Dell, Nikolaj Ehlers, Ryan Spooner, Petr Mrazek, Mike Hoffman, Bobby Ryan, Brad Marchand, Max Pacioretty, Ryan Dzingel, Zack Smith, Curtis Lazar, Erik Karlsson, Craig Anderson, Mike Condon, Justin Schultz, Chris Kunitz, Jake Guentzel, Carl Hagelin, Shea Weber, Jeff Petry, Brendan Gallagher, Carey Price, Brandon Saad, Brandon Dubinsky, Jason Spezza, Patrick Sharp, Sami Vatanen, Radek Faksa, Ryan Getzlaf, Ryan Kesler, Sidney Crosby, Connor McDavid, Brent Burns, Rikard Rakell, Aaron Ekblad, Nick Ritchie, Ondrej Kase, Alex Edler, Daniel Sedin, Henrik Sedin, Troy Stecher, Radim Vrbata, Oliver Ekman-Larsson, Michael Stone, Alex Goligoski, Tomas Tatar, Anthony Mantha, Jake Allen, Carter Hutton, Steve Mason, Leon Draisaitl, Andrej Sekera, Mark Letestu, Mark Scheifele, Patrick Laine, Mathieu Perreault 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. 135 - Glory Hayes
Welcome to a special mid-week edition of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast! Listen now, or save it for your usual Sunday night or Monday morning listening-- the choice is yours! Several outjuries are eyeing prime playing spots on their rosters, including yet another mid-six Ranger putting up top six numbers, a couple mid-six Jets with potential to step into a top six role, and a hard-luck Habs winger who would be happy to help spark his squad. The guys also chat about Andrei Markov and what his ceiling for the rest of the year could be. Hot streaks carry the rest of the main show, as we circle back to a minor league call-up in St Louis that we zoomed past last week, a trio of Isles who may be feeling some of the weight lifted off of their shoulders since a coaching change, a New Jersey forward who is very quietly on pace to post the best numbers of his career, a Colorado rookie finally hitting the scoresheets, a Sabres forward who's clicking and ticking most of his boxes on a new line, a Panthers defenseman who looks to lead the blueline down the homestretch, and a Columbus centreman taking a run at reclaiming his depth value. Players discussed on this episode include Kevin Hayes, Mika Zibanejad, Connor Hellebuyck, Drew Stafford, Mathieu Perreault, Ondrej Pavelec, Brendan Gallagher, Andrei Markov, Shea Weber, Kris Russell, Travis Konecny, Shane Gostisbehere, Kenny Agostino, Alex Steen, Jake Allen, Carter Hutton, Andrew Ladd, Brock Nelson, Ryan Strome, Adam Henrique, Mikko Rantanen, Calvin Pickard, Nicklas Backstrom, Philipp Grubauer, Evander Kane, Keith Yandle, Brandon Dubinsky, Cam Atkinson, Charlie Coyle, James Neal, Viktor Arvidsson, David Backes, David Krejci, Matt Beleskey, David Pastrnak, 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. 134 - Marleau Contraire
As on any given Sunday, go ahead and pop in your air buds-- it's time for little fantasy giants Elan and Brian to help you remember the titans (and not-so-titans) of this week's NHL action in a brand new episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast!  In this week's injuries, it's a real case of you don't know what you've got til it's gone with a shelved even-strength stud in Pittsburgh, a still underappreciated centreman in Dallas, and a Lightning forward whose absences from the scoresheet are now further assured. In outjuries, the guys go back to the future in trying to imagine what 2/3 of the Panthers' first line can offer on offesne, and what that also means for former and remaining members of that top trio. They also head to the desert to wonder how excited it's reasonable to get about they Coyotes' likely top scorer, and then move slightly westward for a Kings forward who finally has returned to the lineup. This episode's hot streaks feature your Cane(s) of the Week, a powerless Senators centreman finding his way at even strength, a meh Shark becoming more whoa, Cody Franson???, a re-established Nashville #1, and a challenger for #1 on the Columbus blueline. Cold streaks end the show, with looks at an ever-alarming press box presence in Philadelphia, an unsprung foward in Minnesota, and a flickering Flame. Players discussed on this episode include Jonathan Huberdeau, Max Domi, Seth Jones, Chris Kunitz, Justin Schultz, Jason Zucker, J.T. Miller, Mark Giordano, Shane Gostisbehere, Mark Streit, Kris Letang, Conor Sheary, Jason Spezza, Patrick Eaves, Cody Eakin, Radek Faksa, Jiri Hudler, Devin Shore, Bryan Rust, Nick Bonino, Ondrej Palat, Tyler Johnson, Vladislav Namestnikov, Alex Killorn, Alex Barkov, Jack Eichel, Jonathan Marchessault, Jeff Carter, Tyler Toffoli, Peter Budaj, Jonathan Quick, Sidney Crosby, Alex Ovechkin, Max Pacioretty, Alex Steen, Paul Stastny, Robby Fabbri, David Perron, Jake Allen, Sebastian Aho, Elias Lindholm, Jordan Staal, Jeff Skinner, Derick Brassard, Pekka Rinne, Juuse Saros, Zach Werenski, Sergei Bobrovsky, Cody Franson, Patrick Marleau, Sam Reinhart, Robin Lehner, Michal Neuvirth, Charlie Coyle, Ryan Suter, Dougie Hamilton, TJ Brodie, Mikael Backlund, Pavel Buchnevich, David Backes, Ryan Miller, Jacob Markstrom 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. 133 - 30 Teams, 30 Takes
On the 133rd episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast, we're trying something for the 1st time.

No. 132 - Forgot About Ondrej
Roster moves around the league kick off this week's show, as we see an old-but-new #1 option re-emerge once more, an AHL dominator get another crack at a top top six, and the impacts of a coaching change in Long Island. In this week's infirmary, we consider the backup options for a goalie who'd just been finding his rhythm, a goalie who hasn't had a rhythm, a pair of blue-liners who can be trusted to step into high production roles, the Red Wings' top scorer, and whether or not extended absences in Florida are encouraging or deflating for the fantasy prospects on the rest of the roster. In this week's outfirmary: a couple new Rangers who are still establishing their point pace expectations, a dynamic d-man whose gamelog betrays expectations, and a Sabre with whom you'll only ever be satisfied if you maintain low expectations. As usual, streaks abound, including everything being upside-down in St Louis, a former team-leading scorer being demoted to coach-swears-it's-not-actually the third line, a couple of Wild going Wild, an attempt to pass the torch of top production on Calgary's blue line, a top six tourist and a slumping goal-getter in Boston, a top six mainstay in Ottawa who might be starting to play like one again, a long-time top six Leaf making the case that he truly velongs there, and a few goalies that Elan claims Brian has been wrong about. Players mentioned on this episode include Ondrej Pavelec, Connor Hellebuyck, Jake Guentzel, Mathieu Perreault, Andrew Copp, Justin Schultz, Thomas Greiss, Anders Lee, Ryan Strome, Jonathan Bernier, Jhonas Enroth, Rickard Rakell, Jakob Silfverberg, Logan Shaw, Ryan Kesler, Semyon Varlamov, Calvin Pickard, Spencer Martin, Tyson Barrie, Francois Beuachemin, Erik Johnson, John Carlson, Philip Grubauer, Matt Niskanen, Andre Burakovsky, Alex Barkov, Jonathan Huberdeau, Vincent Trocheck, Reilly Smith, Jussi Jokinen, Jaromir Jagr, Jonathan Marchessault, Thomas Vanek, Anthony Mantha, Mike Zibanejad, Rick Nash, Pavel Buchnevich, PK Subban, Viktor Arvidsson, Tyler Ennis, Jaden Schwartz, Alex Steen, Paul Stastny, Vladimir Tarasenko, Jake Allen, Carter Hutton, Pheonix Copley, Nino Niederreiter, Zach Parise, Jason Pominville, Dougie Hamilton, Mark Giordano, TJ Brodie, Johnny Gaudreau, Sean Monahan, Frank Vatrano, David Pastrnak, David Backes, Tyler Bozak, Jordan Eberle, Bobby Ryan, Mike Condon, Ryan Miller, Cam Ward, 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. 131 - Ghost Busted
The Blue Jackets' streak is over, but the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast's streak of appearing in your podcast feed on a weekly basis continues!  The show begins on an optimistic note with Outjuries, where we consider what can be expected by one old and one new Ranger returned to health, the upside of Montreal's #1 centre and his affect on some complementary pieces, a hopefully healed point-per-game Star, and if the return of Ryan Getzlaf can save Elan's bacon in the Rakell over/under bet. Underwhelming crease battles are renewed in Tampa Bay and Pittsburgh, and a pair of blueliners come back to man their teams' top powerplay units. In injuries, the guys wonder if there's top pairing scoring potential from either of the Predators' second pairing mainstays, and also if it's time to just save yourself the headache and rid yourself of Kris Letang.  Hot streaks this week feature the latest of Connor McDavid's benefactors, John Tavares and his benefactors, Anze Kopitar and his benefactor, Torey Krug, and so many Hurricanes because they figured out how to score. Cold streaks include an Oiler on the outside who should be able to do better for himself, another who maybe shouldn't, and a Devil who doesn't happen to be getting in on any of the 1.5 goals the Devils score each game. The show is interspersed with a mess of conversations about goalie messes. Huge messes. Gross messes. Sad messes. So many goalies making messes. Players mentioned on this episode include Shane Gostisbehere, Alex Galchenyuk, Philip "Phil" Danault, Pavel Buchnevich, Rick Nash, Carey Price, Nick Holden, Michael Grabner, Paul Byron, Jamie Benn, Radek Faksa, Patrick Sharp, John Klingberg, Ryan Getzlaf, Corey Perry, Rickard Rakell, Ben Bishop, Andrei Vasilevskiy, not Victor Hedman, Marc-Andre Fleury, Matt Murray, Mark Streit, Ivan Provorov, Roman Josi, Mattias Ekholm, Ryan Ellis, Mike Green, Antti Niemi, Kari Lehtonen, Michal Neuvirth, Steve Mason, James Neal, Viktor Arvidsson, Mike Fisher, Filip Forsberg, Auston Watson, Curtis McElhinney, Justin Schultz, Kris Letang, Joonas Korpisalo, Anton Forsberg, Sergei Bobrovsky, Sam Gagner, Alex Wennberg, Brandon Saad, Zach Werenski, Patrick Maroon, Milan Lucic, Jordan Eberle, Jon Tavares, Nick Leddy, Anze Kopitar, Marian Gaborik, Jordan Stall, Brock McGinn, Victor Rask, Torey Krug, Patrice Bergeron, Mike Cammalleri, Braden Holtby, Jake Allen, Carter Hutton, Connor Hellebuyck, Michael Hutchinson 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. 129 - Eberle's Ills, 000000
It's the holiday edition of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast, which is to say that it's exactly the same as all the others! Perhaps next week, when the podcast takes the week off, is the true holiday edition.. (take note: our next regular episode comes at you on January 8th).   Unwanted holidays begin our show, as Elan and Brian unwrap the effects of injuries around the NHL, including a couple of tender tenders in Tampa and Detroit, a shelved blueliner also in Detroit, and infirm top six forwards in New York and St. Louis. Returns from unwanted holidays follow, with kudos being handed out to a back-to-backup goalie in Chicago, best wishes to a Bruin forward edging his way out of the doghouse, and a couple of Hurricanes whose output will likely remain limited by their locale. Then, it's on to players gone AWOL, who've taken holidays without permission or approval from anyone. The guys lament the scoresheet absences of the next best Oiler after McDavid, a bandaid boy Blue, a couple of Habs, and the Sabre who was supposed to fix everything. We put a bow on this edition by saluting those players working overtime for your fantasy team, with four Blue Jackets, three Minnesota Wild, two Calgary Flames, and a Leafs goalie on a hot streak.  Players featured on this episode include Alex Wennberg, Cam Atkinson, Jordan Eberle, Mark Letestu, Matt Dumba, Andrei Vasilevskiy, Brian Elliott, Matthew Tkachuk, Frederik Andersen, Petr Mrazek, Anthony Mantha, Shea Weber, Alex Radulov, Jack Eichel, Jimmy Howard, Jared Coreau, Ben Bishop, Kristers Gudlevskis, Mike Green, Rick Nash, Kyle Palmieri, Brandon Pirri, Mika Zibanejad, Derek Stepan, Ryan Sproul, Paul Stastny, Alex Steen, Corey Crawford, Scott Darling, David Pastrnak, Ryan Spooner, Frank Vatrano, Elias Lindholm, Derek Ryan, Eddie Lack, Patrick Maroon, Leon Draisaitl, Jason Zucker, Eric Staal, Niklas Kronwall, Brian Rafalski, Cory Schneider and more.   This episode was sponsored in part by SeatGeek.

If yes, then you'll love the opening to this edition of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast-- and you'll hopefully find some value in the fantasy hockey news, analysis and advice that follows, too!   Elan and Brian kick off the show with a visit to the infirmary, where they consider whether there's already a perfectly capable replacement for Kris Letang in Pittsburgh, whether there's anyone even left to play for the Habs, how the heck Cory Conacher found his way back into the Lightning lineup (and use this as a springboard to consider whether Victor Hedman is a top ten keeper defenseman), who the heck this Seth Griffith guy is that appeared in the midst of Marchessault's returns and departures to the lineup, and whether there's any meaning in Pastrnak's injury for Patrice Bergeron's fortunes rest of year.   Then they head over to the outfirmary, where they question Avs' management's handling of their should-be-peaking captain, wonder what Chicago's lines will possibly look like going forward, and chatter about whether anyone playing with the Flames' two best forwards is worth owning.   In hot streaks, they bicker (again!) over the future of a Duck on fire, a recently snoozing Senator, another blueline producer in Toronto, a Tavares linemate in Brooklyn, a sizeable chunk of the top nine in Minnesota, a Barracuda temporarily(?) evolved into a Shark, the obvious number one goalie in New York, and a guy who is awful but throws a billion hits, so he's got that going for him.   And just a couple cold streaks this week, featuring this week's victim of the St Louis Blues shuffle (but is there more to it than that?), a Star whose lost his grip on the coattails he's been riding, and a curiously underperforming super Star whose once long coattails have suddenly shrunk.   The show closes off with a few guys Brian tosses in at the end, including a dream sequence still continuing in Carolina, a secretive resurgence in Washington, and the very early seeds of a crease controversy for a Pacific team that's been without one for ages.   Players featured on this episode include Justin Schultz, Patric Hornqvist, Patrice Bergeron, Frank Vatrano, Kris Letang, Jeff Petry, Seth Griffith, Jonathan Marchessault, Alex Barkov, Jaromir Jagr, Jussi Jokinen, Cory Conacher, Victor Hedman, Tyler Johnson, Gabriel Landeskog, Jarome Iginla, Jonathan Toews, Artem Anisimov, Marian Hossa, Kris Versteeg, Sean Monahan, Troy Brouwer, Johnny Gaudreau, TJ Brodie, Mark Giordano, Chad Johnson, Brian Elliott, Rickard Rakell, Sami Vatanen, Shea Theodore, Corey Perry, Bobby Ryan, Jake Gardiner, James van Riemsdyk,  Nazem Kadri, Anders Lee, Josh Bailey, Eric Staal, Nino Niderreiter, Mikko Koivu, Timo Meier, Henrik Lundqvist, Antti Raana, Mark Borowiecki, Alex Steen, Patrick Eaves, Jamie Benn, Derek Ryan, Evgeny Kuznetsov, Antti Niemi, Pekka Rinne, Juuse Saros and more.   This episode was sponsored in part by SeatGeek.

No. 127 - Raanta Awes
Too early for a holiday-related episode title? This brand new episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast makes no apologies!    This week's edition kicks off with injuries, where we pause to consider how the Montreal Canadiens put up a ten-spot without two of their top three centremen, as well as how anything good can happen in Arizona with a key component of their first line gone for a while. And yes, Martin Hanzal is healthy..   There's much more happening in outjuries, where we've got a Predator and Senator goal-scorers whose gamelogs aren't all that dissimilar to when they were injured, a reliable top-sixer getting his spot back in Washington, and a masked Red Wing who'll be looking to regain the pre-injury form that had eluded him for a long, long, long, long while.   Speaking of goalies, weirdness continues to pervade keeper numbers and performances and tandems around the league, with a sudden extended rest for a legendary Ranger tendy, an apparent attempt at a tandem in Colorado, a turn away from a heretofore #1 in Winnipeg, and Cory Schneider doing his best Cam Ward impression.   Cold streaks this week sweep through an entire Metropolitan squad, key components of an Atlantic team, a couple guys named Zach, and a usually reliable King. Hot streaks include a guy Brian called a snoozer last week, a guy Elan called a snoozer last week, a still kind of hopeless buy maybe not Cap, a Cap tease, as well as a less hopeless Cap, a Blue and an Oiler who find themselves this week's beneficiaries of their teams' usual line shuffling, a bunch of Islanders(!?), a former Isle, and two Penguins d-men who Brian will again tell you not to rush to pick up.   Players featured on this episode include Alex Galchenyuk, Tomas Plekanec, Antti Raanta, Henrik Lundqvist, Max Domi, James Neal, Filip Forsberg, Viktor Arvidsson, TJ Oshie, Evgeni Kuznetsov, John Carlson, Bobby Ryan, Petr Mrazek, Jimmy Howard, Marcus Johansson, Radim Vrbata, Tobias Rieder, Anthony DeAngelo, Michael Stone, Mike Smith, Chet Pickard, Semyon Varlamov, Pekka Rinne, Michael Hutchinson, Connor Hellebuyck, Cory Schneider, Keith Kinkaid, Victor Rask, Derek Ryan, Jaccob Slavin,  Max Pacioretty, Brendan Gallagher, Zach Parise, Mikko Koivu, Eric Staal, Zach Werenski Andrew Shaw, David Desharnais, Alex Radulov, Paul Byron, Philip Danault, Tyler Toffoli, Sam Gagner, Marian Gaborik, Jonathan Drouin, Tyler Johnson, Ondrej Palat, Steve Mason, Michal Neuvirth, Robby Fabbri, John Tavares, Josh Bailey, Anders Lee, Frans Nielsen, Justin Schultz, Ian Cole, Drake Caggiula and more.   This episode was sponsored in part by SeatGeek.

No. 126 - Eichel, Jack's In
Want to know what's on Brian's shelf? Well, you're in luck: the 126th episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast tells you that, and more! With the "more" being cutting edge and deeply informative fantasy analysis on the most important hockey news of the past week.   Big things are expected from this week's outjuries, as it's October in December for poolies who have Jack Eichel or any of his linemates. How much can he do for them? Same question for high-end forwards returning to boost top sixes in St Louis, Winnipeg, New Jersey, Pitsburgh and Calgary.   In a brand new segment this week, entitled Appendectomies and other Injuries, Elan and Brian discuss whether Scott Darling is the de facto number one on the league's top team while Corey Crawford is out, or whether that title can't possibly be bestowed on Chicago if Crawford's not in their lineup (not to mention Toews). We also mention a couple fallen Stars, and an unheralded Avalanche blueliner who will be dearly missed by his owners for the duration of his injury.   Hot streaks on this edition include a feast-or-famine Oiler who's currently feasting, a Bolt who quietly stepped up in Stamkos's absence, a Senator whose buy low window may now be closed, a shooting and hitting Blue Jacket with a couple recent points to his name, a Bruins D left for dead, a Coyote leading his team in scoring, and a Red Wings rookie riding shotgun with a streaking vet.   Cold streaks include a Dallas d-man, so disempowered players in Montreal, a demoted Coyote, a heretofore PP1 contributor in Columbus, and so many of the Florida Panthers.    Players featured on this episode include Jack Eichel, Alex Steen, Taylor Hall, Conor Sheary, Marc-Andre Fleury, Matt Murray, Johnny Gaudreau, Sean Monahan, Chad Johnson, Alex Barkov, Corey Crawford, Scott Darling, Roberto Luongo, Jonathan Toews, Marian Hossa, Patrick Sharp, Julius Honka, John Klingberg, Jason Spezza, Erik Johnson, Tyson Barrie, Francois Beauchemin, Leon Draisaitl, Oscar Klefbom, Andrej Sekera, Valtteri Filppula, Jonathan Drouin, Mike Hoffman, Mark Stone, Kyle Turris, Erik Karlsson, Anthony Mantha, Henrik Zetterberg, Max Pacioretty, Brendan Gallagher, Anthony DeAngelo, Brandon Saad, Boone Jenner, Cam Fowler, Sami Vatanen, Sam Gagner, Radim Vrbata, Sam Reinhart, Evander Kane, Rasmus Ristolainen, Nik Ehlers, Blake Wheeler, Vladimir Tarasenko, Kevin Shattenkirk, Colton Parayko, Travis Zajac, Adam Henrique, and more.   This episode was sponsored in part by SeatGeek.

No. 125 - Leisure Suit Cammalleri
Welcome to the quasiquincentennial edition of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast!   Injuries open this week's episode, as Elan and Brian get into who's out of the lineup, and who's moving up the depth chart as a result. We take a look at the top six in Pittsburgh, a nail in the coffin in Carolina, an unheralded shooting wizard moving on up in Nashville, a de-railed PP1 coup in Washington, and open doors to creases in the Pacific and Atlantic. There's also movement in the F corps in Toronto, Philadelphia and New York.   Outjuries follow, with the guys taking stock of several players returning to lineups already in progress. A pair of Kings enter an ace lineup, a top six forward in New Jersey that Brian urged you to pick up last week does heavenly things for himself and others, a Sabre tries to sharpen his team's shooting, and depth Panthers and Blue Jackets may only be drops in larger buckets.   Who's hot this week? We'll tell you! Specifically, there is a Duck who is actually scoring more goals than maybe he should, a couple Blues feeling downright jazzy, and a couple Canucks desperately trying to make the most of their situations.   Who's snoozing this week? We'll tell you that, too! Hover over the drop button for blueliners in Columbus, Boston and Minnesota, a couple goalies in the Metropolitan, and a forward in Philly.   Players featured on this episode include Jake Guentzel, Calvin Pickard, Semyon Varlamov, Petr Mrazek, Cam Ward, Viktor Arvidsson, James Neal, William Nylander, Leo Komarov, Nikita Soshnikov, Nazem Kadri, Mitch Marner, John Carlson, Chris Kunitz, Jesper Fast, Chris Kreider, Travis Konecny, Wayne Simmonds, Anze Kopitar, Marian Gaborik, Jeff Carter, Tyler Toffoli, Peter Budaj, Carey Price, Tuukka Rask, Devan Dubnyk, Michael Cammalleri, Ryan O'Reilly, Evander Kane, Nick Bjugstad, Seth Jones, Zach Werenski, Oscar Klefbom, David Perron, Jaden Schwartz, Rickard Rakell, Corey Perry, Ryan Getzlaf, Brandon Carlo, Jaroslav Halak, JF Berube, Ryan Kesler, Jakob Silfverberg, Jonathan Bernier, Loui Eriksson, Bo Horvat, Keith Kinkaid, Cory Schneider, Matt Dumba, Matt Murray, Marc-Andre Fleury and more.   This episode was sponsored in part by SeatGeek.

No. 124 - Wards of Warning
Erik Karlsson's engaged, and we hope you are, too, throughout this entire brand new episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast!   This episode kicks off with a list of injuries to star players that might just be the kick in the pants their healthy teammates need to finally get going. We pore over the depth charts in Tampa Bay, New Jersey, Calgary and Washington to figure out who might be ready to pick up the slack, with a particular nod to a Devil you know from last season.   Elan and Brian then go the other way to outjuries, considering whether the heretofore top line right winger in Dallas might finally get bumped, marveling at an entire top line that is criminally underowned, wondering whether a returning Red Wing offers any hope on a points-poor roster, and more.   Finally, the guys run down current hot streaks around the NHL, including the other point man in Montreal, the other winger in Vancouver, the other rookie in Toronto, the other McDavid linemate in Edmonton, the other Anisimov linemate in Chicago, and the other other guys in Winnipeg.   And somewhere along the way, they fight about Cam Ward and Jimmy Howard, while remaining reasonably calm on Mike Smith and Connor Hellebuyck.   Players featured on this episode include Steven Stamkos, Jonathan Drouin, Taylor Hall, Damon Severson, Michael Cammalleri, Johnny Gaudreau, Sean Monahan, Sam Bennett, Chad Johnson, Brian Elliott, Andrei Vasilevskiy, Ben Bishop, Mark Giordano, Dougie Hamilton, TJ Oshie, Justin Williams, John Carlson, Andre Burakovsky, Bobby Ryan, Pavel Buchnevitch, Tomas Hertl, JT Miller, Mika Zibanejad, Jimmy Vesey, Chris Kunitz, Patric Hornqvist, Kevin Labanc, Patrick Marleau, Joe Thornton, Logan Couture, Patrick Sharp, Patrick Eaves, Jason Spezza, Antoine Roussel, Martin Hanzal, Radim Vrbata, Max Domi, Matt Niskanen, Mike Smith, Louis Domingue, Thomas Vanek, Henrik Zetterberg, Dylan Larkin, Jimmy Howard, Ondrej Palat, Tyler Johnson, Petr Mrazek, Cam Ward, Andrei Markov, Victor Rask, Teuvo Teravainen, Brandon Sutter, Troy Stecher, James van Riemsdyk, Mitch Marner, Tyler Bozak, Morgan Rielly, Marian Hossa, Artem Anisimov, Jesse Puljujarvi, Milan Lucic, Patrick Maroon, Jordan Eberle, Marko Dano, Nic Petan, Connor Hellebuyck, and more.   This episode was sponsored in part by DRAFT!  It's a super fun and simple daily fantasy app where you build your team through a snake draft with your opponent, and then compete through the night's or week's games.

No. 123 - Skjei My Name
 Another episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast, another argument about Steve Mason!   Elan and Brian butt heads right off the top over whether a fresh injury to Michal Neuvirth lays out a road to recovery for Steve Mason's 2016-17 season. There's less contention as they unpack the consequences of injuries to bluelines in Carolina and Columbus (btw, is Nick Foligno for real??), and thinner-than-you'd-think top sixes in Los Angeles and Colorado.   Outjuries and cold streaks are one and the same this week, as Evander Kane, Hampus Lindholm, Jacob Trouba and former shootout specialist Jussi Jokinen have yet to make an impact since re-joining their teams. Top power-play defensemen are also sputtering in Winnipeg, Florida, Colorado and Calgary-- we'll let you know whether you can expect the outages to continue with those players, as well as a banging Oiler, a quieter wunderkind Maple Leaf, and the entire Senators and Blues rosters.   And for every cold blue-liner, there's a hot one-- a Ranger and Coyote are both getting opportunities to make positive first impressions in the NHL, and an oft-cycled Flyer is suddenly hitting people. The guys also give props to streaking masked men in Ottawa, Pittsburgh and Nashville, along with a pair of revived veteran centremen in Minnesota and New Jersey.   The show rounds out with three snoozers: players that you might have on your roster without realizing they're no longer doing anything at all for your team. One of them scored 77 points last year, and Elan would drop him for Eric Staal in a shallow league.   Players featured on this episode include Steve Mason, Brady Skjei, Anthony DeAngelo, Seth Jones, Nick Foligno, Noah Hanifin, Pekka Rinne, Eric Staal, Evgeny Kuznetsov, Travis Zajac, Mark Scheifele, Connor Hellebuyck, Cam Ward, Eddie Lack, Evander Kane, Hampus Lindholm, Ryan Kesler, Jacob Trouba, Jussi Jokinen, Jonathan Marchessault, Reilly Smith, Vincent Trocheck, Dustin Byfuglien, Patrick Sharp, Jason Spezza, Kari Lehtonen, Antti Niemi, Tyson Barrie, Mark Giordano, Richard Panik, Aaron Ekblad, Auston Matthews, Mark Stone, Kyle Turris, Bobby Ryan, Derrick Brassard, Mike Hoffman, Erik Karlsson, Craig Anderson, Mike Condon, Milan Lucic, Patrick Maroon, Michael del Zotto, Matt Murray, Robby Fabbri, Teuvo Teravainen, Troy Stecher and more.   This episode was sponsored in part by DRAFT!  It's a super fun and simple daily fantasy app where you build your team through a snake draft with your opponent, and then compete through the night's or week's games.

No. 122 - Color Me Ladd
Is patience a virtue? This week's episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast is all about the players who are are most likely to be testing your tolerance with early-season slumps. Elan and Brian are here to help you decide whether to grant a stay of execution to these heretofore snoozers, or to cut your losses and move on. You've been asking all week for permission to let go of several skaters after watching them struggle to score for ten-plus games. Can a new Islander make more of a dent towards gaining back the 134 points sent out the door in the offseason? Is a young Panther centreman able to produce without his left-hand man? Were we fooled by an early-season surge by a perennial tease in St. Louis? Do two of three triplets deserve to survive on your roster? Will a Calgary forward's stat line continue to be as boring as he is?  The guys also examine the other side of the coin, which features a surprising selection of point-per-game players from around the league. Will several Blue Jackets continue lighting the lamp? Can a trio of Rangers possibly crack fifty points with only third line minutes and no power-play time? Did our earlier haste make waste of an opportunity to ride a Chicago centreman's ten game point streak? Can a Devils' d-man contend for forty points while barely putting any shots on net? All that, and more, on this week's episode! Players featured on this episode include Sergei Bobrovsky, Steve Mason, Aleksander Barkov, Jaromir Jagr, Colton Sceviour, Ondrej Palat, Tyler Johnson, Paul Stastny, Jaden Schwartz, Sean Monahan, Johnny Gaudreau, Michael Frolik, Derek Stepan, Poor Torey Krug, Andrew Ladd, Leon Draisaitl, Loui Eriksson, Radim Vrbata, Semyon Varlamov, Calvin Pickard, Jake Allen, Alexander Wennberg, Nick Foligno, Zach Werenski, Damon Severson, Yohann Auvitu, Artem Anisimov, Marian Hossa, JT Miller, Kevin Hayes, Michael Grabner, Marcus Johansson, Rickard Rakell, Dennis Seidenberg,, Alec Martinez, Jake Muzzin, Cal Clutterbuck, Evander Kane, David Backes, David Krejci, Conor Sheary, Niklas Kronwall, Mike Green, Carl Hagelin and more.

No. 121 - Dzingel All The Way
Will Mikko Rantanen meet high expectations in year one? Has Radko Gudas metamorphosed into an offensive force? Can the league's best five-on-five goal-scoring team continue being that after losing their best player to injury? Is there a chance for the newly-signed Hampus Lindholm to actually do anything on a crowded Anaheim blueline? How are Talbot, Dubnyk, and Rask doing so well? Is it time to rename the Habs' powerplay after one of its featured players? Hanifin or Matheson or Severson? And what about Carlson and the other slumping superstars in Washington? And Nashville!? The answers to those questions, along with news and analysis on your latest NHL injuries, outjuries, line changes, hot streaks, cold streaks and miscellany in another jam-packed episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast. Players discussed on this episode include Sidney Crosby, Pavel Buchnevich, Scott Wilson, Matt Murray, Mikko Rantanen, Radko Gudas, Jori Lehtera, Jaden Schwartz, Robby Fabbri, Jimmy Vesey, Jiri Hudler, Zach Parise, Charlie Coyle, Joel Eriksson Ek, Ryan Suter, Eric Staal, Nikita Kucherov, Alex Killorn, Brayden Point, Ondrej Palat, Tyler Johnson, PK Subban, Thomas Vanek, Gustav Nyquist, Tomas Tatar, Nick Ritchie, Hampus Lindholm, Shea Theodore, Cam Talbot, Tuukka Rask, Devan Dubnyk, Shea Weber, David Desharnais, Alex Radulov, Noah Hanifin, Michael Matheson, Yohann Auvitu, Damon Severson, Pavel Zacha, Matt Moulson, Kyle Okposo, Sam Reinhart, Ryan Dzingel, John Carlson, Nicklas Backstrom, Marcus Johansson, Tom Wilson, Evgeny Kuznetsov, David Krejci, JT Miller, Vincent Trocheck, Troy Stecher, Philip Larsen, Mark Streit, Brandon Pirri, Devin Shore, Michael Stone, Anthony Beauvillier, Henrik Lundqvist and more. * * * Download this episode, subscribe, and review us on iTunes!

No. 120 - Werenski or Die
Afraid you've missed a single hockey news item or note from the past week? Or that you're misreading the numbers while trying to make sense of the outlandish player performances to date? Let this brand new episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast be your antidote! Pearson-mania all over again? Matthews a top ten scorer? Is there an impressive Canuck? Is Brouwer a more interesting human being than fantasy own? Do we have a Jack Campbell sighting on the horizon? Time to panic about Panik? Jimmy How-muchlongercanhepossiblykeepthisup? Boone no longer a boon for fantasy owners? Montoya earning greater share of the starts? Elan begins by going way off script to officially anoint the heir of his hashtag-team allegiance for this season, and then gets to a welcome group of outjuries that are shaking up depth charts, including a new opportunity for a returned St Louis Blue, and a way out of the doghouse for a Boston Bruin. Then it's over to injuries, where we draw particular attention to a new second-best power play option in Pittsburgh, weak goalie depth in Arizona and LA. Taking a tour of hot streaks around the league, Elan and Brian work to figure out when two overachieving Blackhawks may come down to earth, whether a Detroit blue-liner has hope of regaining his form of yesteryear, which ice time distribution quirks are favouring which Hurricanes, and whether Huberdeau's replacement in Florida is earning his keep on the top line. Elan also gets pretty sad about not having enough patience for a certain Leaf centreman to contribute to his roster, and gets very un-sad about a second line centre in Colorado. The guys also examine the meaning of roster moves made in Columbus and Anaheim, and line changing madness happening in Calgary, Nashville and New Jersey-- the last of which has Elan wondering whether there's more than one fantasy relevant Devil to be owned. The show wraps up with some early snoozer candidates, including this year's edition of a quality winger struggling in Vancouver, a non-Okposo in Brooklyn, a couple goalies struggling in Canadian creases, and an Atlantic PPQB with nothing to show for his efforts. Players discussed on this episode include Carey Price, Richard Panik, Auston Matthews, Jimmy Howard, Tanner Pearson, Zach Werenski, Shayne Gostisbehere, Mike Green, Jaden Schwartz, David Perron, Nail Yakupov, Patrice Bergeron, Ryan Spooner, Michael Stone, Alex Goligoski, Brayden Schenn, Matt Read, Tanner Pearson, Mike Smith, Louis Domingue, Justin Peters, Jeff Zatkoff, Peter Budaj, Jack Campbell, Patrick Sharp, Ales Hemsky, Brett Ritchie, Radek Faksa, Justin Schultz, Marc-Andre Fleury, Brian Campbell, Duncan Keith, Jonathan Marchessault,  Lee Stempniak, Victor Rask, Jeff Skinner, Sebastian Aho, Teuvo Teravainen, Elias Lindholm, Alex Killorn, Petr Mrazek, Nazem Kadri, Kari Lehtonen, Sergey Bobrovsky, William Nylander, Mitch Marner, Matt Duchene, Mikhail Grigorenki, Mikko Rantanen, Shea Theodore, Brandon Carlo, Torey Krug, Cam Fowler, Sami Vatanen, Oliver Bjorkstrand, Boone Jenner, Johnny Boychuk, Kris Versteeg, Troy Brouwer, Viktor Arvidsson, Kevin Fiala, TJ Brodie, Brian Elliott, Frederik Andersen, Loui Eriksson, Brandon Sutter, Andrew Ladd and more. * * * Download this episode, subscribe, and review us on iTunes!

No. 119 - Auston Translation
Boxscores! Line juggling! On-ice events! Terrible goaltending performances! They're all finally here after a long season of waiting, and the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast is here to catch you up on all that you need to know about the first five days of NHL regular season play. First off, what the heck should you do with your team post-draft? Should you tinker with adds/drops or stand pat? Elan and Brian dish out some advice on early season management strategies, describing how they evaluate and react to the first handful of games played in a season. Next, they dig into the first week's most tantalizing performances, rolling through a list of the vets, rookies and tweeners who are scoring above a point-per-game pace at this early stage, and making the call on whether they're 'add now!!'s or wait-and-sees.  Elan and Brian then go over a handful of injuries, specifically speculating on what the heck might happen in LA's crease. A discussion of players on cold streaks-- or, well, whatever you'd call guys who are scoreless in back to back games to start the season-- rounds out the show.

No. 118 - Dinged Crosby
Two sleeps until the NHL regular season begins, but the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast is already in full swing with a new episode jam-packed with all of the latest hockey news and fantasy spin.  We start with two awful real-life injuries that have an urgent fantasy impact, suggesting which Penguins and Panthers may get or take a bump while Crosby and Huberdeau are on the shelf. Then, Elan and Brian turn their attention to the NHL's waiver wire, where 3 more-than-serviceable players sit after being surprisingly let go in advance of the season opener. In particular, Brian plays the role of wet blanket to perfection by doubting whether Ondrej Pavelec's waiving means clear skies ahead for Hellebuyck, and also provides his dream scenario for P.A. Parenteau in 2016-17. The guys then roll through some of the season's newest Calder Trophy candidates as news trickles out of which prospects are making their teams out of camp, with stops in Philadelphia, Chicago, Anaheim, Toronto, Columbus and Montreal. Finally, we share all the opening night line combos we've seen and mine them for hints at fantasy fortunes in the year ahead, zeroing in on a top-line winger in Detroit, a questionable piece in Ottawa's top six, an expected shift in Chicago, a rising youngster in Boston, and a multi-generational combo in Arizona. And still, there's more! The Yakupov trade, how to handle injured players, whether to trade for injured players, RFA situations, last-minute IR stashes, pre-season scoring leaders.. and tons more info that'll give you the early upper-hand in your fantasy pool as we head into the season. Players discussed on this episode include Sidney Crosby, Nail Yakupov, David Perron, Kris Russell, Jonathan Huberdeau, Jonathan Marchessault, Alex Steen, Kevin Shattenkirk, Jussi Jokinen, Michael del Zotto, Ivan Provorov, Travis Konecny, Brayden Schenn, Joonas Korpisalo, Sergei Bobrovsky, Marian Gaborik, Nikita Kucherov, Johnny Gaudreau, Hampus Lindholm, Rasmus Ristolainen, Rickard Rakell, Nick Ritchie, Jacob Trouba, Ondrej Pavelec, Connor Hellebuyck, Michael Hutchinson, P.A. Parenteau, Teemu Pulkkinen, Antti Niemi, Kari Lehtonen, Jake Allen, Carter Hutton, Connor Sheary, Nick Bonino, Nikita Zaitsev, Zach Werenski, Yohann Auvitu, Damon Severson, Richard Panik, Tyler Motte, Marian Hossa, Nick Schmaltz, John Tavares, Ryan Strome, Matthew Barzal, Jakob Silfverberg, Anthony Beauvillier, Joshua Ho-Sang, Ryan Spooner, David Pastrnak, Tomas Tatar, Zack Smith, Colton Parayko, Charlie Coyle, Joel Eriksson Ek, Oliver Bjorkstrand, Mikhail Sergachev, Sam Reinhart, Brandon Pirri, Mikhail Grigorenko, Artturi Lehkonen, Alex Edler, Philip Larsen, Aaron Dell, Jaden Schwartz, Tyler Seguin, and more. * * * Download this episode, subscribe, and review us on iTunes!

No. 117 - Sold (The KKUPFL Auction Incident)
On this week's episode Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast, we try something different, giving you a behind the scenes, unedited and uncut look at the Keeping Karlsson Ultimate Patron Fantrax League's Championship Division auction draft. Elan and Brian have a quick chat to open the show about lessons they may or may not have learned from their super competitive auction draft experiences. We then share the live broadcast of the KKUPFL Tier 1 auction draft, hosted by Elan and Jeff Good, which Brian repeatedly tries to join only to have to suddenly leave when players he wants get nominated. We laugh, we cry, we talk about the fantasy value of players as they're drafted, we heap criticism upon Brian's real-time decisions whenever possible. Later this week, keep an eye out for our interview with Peter Harling of Dobber Prospects Radio where we'll offer up some thoughts on which rookies are ready to make a fantasy impact in 2016-17, and then we'll be back with our next episode about all the preseason comings and goings on Monday, October 10.  See the auction draft results at http://www.keepingkarlsson.com/blog, and view the live auction video on our youtube channel at http://www.keepingkarlsson.com/youtube. * * * Download this episode, subscribe, and review us on iTunes!

No. 116 - Fancy Fantasy 2016: Which 'Advanced' ...
As called for by annual tradition, it's time for the 2016 edition of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast's Advanced Stats Primer! 'Which advanced stats are the ones that'll give me a leg up in my pool?' is one of the questions we get most often, and this is the episode where Elan and Brian run down the list of new-ish numbers that they use for their fantasy analysis throughout the year. The guys offer a crash course in finding and understanding rate stats, shooting percentages, IPP, shot attempts for, relative stats, primary assists, and the effects of new coaches, so that you can be a step ahead of your fantasy competition and also keep up with us as we bounce these numbers around through the season. We're also joined by social scientist Stefan Wolejszo, who explains that just because we can't see a quality doesn't mean that it's not there. He describes how often misunderstood character traits-- like resilience and leadership-- really can have measurable effects on hockey players and team dynamics.

No. 114 - Smörgoåliesbord!! 2016
The episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast you've been waiting all summer for: it's Smörgoåliesbord 2016! *kermit-style wildly waving arms and hands motions*   Elan and Brian tell you all about goalie tiering: what it is, why you need to do it for your draft, and what info you should use to guide you in your tiering. Then, they share their own 2016-17 tiers! Can Henrik Lundqvist hang on to his well-worn seat in Tier 1? Just how high will Martin Jones rate on the strength of one fantastic year? Should you draft Murray before Fleury, or the other way around? Does Sergei Bobrovsky hold steady or continue free-falling to lower tiers? Is Steve Mason actually better than Michal Neuvirth? Which as-of-now #1 goalies are ripe for the picking, with quality backups chomping at the bit for more time in the crease? We discuss literally-- literally!-- every goalie that has a chance to see time in an NHL crease this season. Those goalies include: Henrik Lundqvist, Braden Holtby, Martin Jones, Carey Price, Ben Bishop, Pekka Rinne, Jonathan Quick, Tuukka Rask, Roberto Luongo, Corey Crawford, Cory Schneider, Connor Hellebuyck, Sergei Bobrovsky, Peter Mrazek, Steve Mason, Mike Smith, John Gibson, Jake Allen, Frederik Andersen, Craig Anderson, Semyon Varlamov, Devan Dubnyk, Marc-Andre Fleury, Matt Murray, Antti Niemi, Kari Lehtonen, Ryan Miller, Jacob Markstrom, Cam Talbot, Brian Elliott, Robin Lehner, Andrew Hammond, Thomas Greiss, Jaroslav Halak, James Reimer, Cam Ward, Eddie Lack, Joonas Korpisalo, Michal Neuvirth, Ondrej Pavelec, Al Montoya, Carter Hutton, Calvin Pickard, Jhonas Enroth, and many more but I'm going to stop here because I already told you that we talked about every 1st string, 2nd string, and even a bunch of 3rd string goalies who could possibly guard an NHL net this year. Woo!

Bonus Episode: What are Goalies?, with Nick Mer...
It's another bonus episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast! Are goalies really the Papa Shangos of the NHL? Hockey-graphs contributor and goaltending analyst Nick Mercadante joins Brian for an hour-long chat to try and demystify hockey's masked men. The two of them review the pitfalls of conventional goaltending evaluation, the benefits of Nick's new goalie evaluation metric adjGSAA/60 (aka Mercad/60), goalie ageing curves, and projecting goaltender performance.  They also put several of 2015-16's unexpected goaltending performances under the microscope, looking for clues to see whether collapsed goalies are due to rebound, whether goalies riding high can keep from collapsing, and whether 2016-17's likely crop of first-timer #1 goalies will have what it takes to weather their new workloads. The episode wraps up with some crease-based mythbusting regarding the effects of a strong backup on a #1 goalie, and whether enormous amounts of games played really can help a goalie thrive. Goalies discussed on this episode include Henrik Lundqvist, Roberto Luongo, Jonathan Quick, Sergei Bobrovsky, Connor Hellebuyck, Pekka Rinne, Tuukka Rask, Matt Murray, Marc-Andre Fleury, Brian Elliott, Jake Allen, Frederik Andersen, Steve Mason, John Gibson, Michal Neuvirth, Cam Ward and more. * * * Download this episode, subscribe, and review us on iTunes!

No. 113 - Draft Prankings 2016
Dear Yahoo! Fantasy Hockey, We here at the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast really appreciate your pre-draft rankings. Not that we have any intention on following them!

No. 112 - Elite No More?
On last week's edition of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast, Elan and Brian chatted about players on the verge of becoming must-pick guys in the first couple rounds of your draft. This week, they have a look at the other side of that coin: players who no longer deserve the honour of those early round draft picks. The show kicks off with your fantasy spin on the latest news from around the NHL, including the thrilling conclusion of VeseyWatch and its implications on an oddly deep F corps in New York, a newly acquired top six candidate in Dallas, an under-the-radar backup in Toronto, a new face behind the bench in Colorado, and a new prospect acquired in Arizona whose name definitely rhymes with "house" and not "news." Next, your fearless prognosticators name their candidates for players that inspire skepticism when you see them slated once again to get picked in the early rounds. Elan and Brian dig into a couple of vets reuniting with their first coach, a centreman who saw a change of scenery halfway through last year, another centreman who is watching the scenery change around him, a potentially post-peak goal-scoring winger, and a recently ascended PPQB who was working through injury last year. Players discussed on this episode include Jimmy Vesey, Brandon Pirri, Ryan McDonagh, Jiri Hudler, Jason Spezza, Valeri Nichushkin, Jhonas Enroth, Frederik Andersen, Calvin Pickard, Lawson Crouse, Corey Perry, Ryan Getzlaf, Henrik Zetterberg, Jonathan Toews and the ghosts of LW past, Marian Hossa, Ryan Johansen, Nick Foligno, Max Pacioretty, Alex Galchenyuk, Nathan Gerbe, Michael Grabner, Matt Niskanen, John Carlson and more. * * * Download this episode, subscribe, and review us on iTunes!
