No. 89 - Throw Johansen the Air
Last week's episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast was all about catching up on two weeks' worth of action, and this week we're all about getting you ahead of the curve with all of the latest fantasy hockey news, info and analysis.This 89th edition of the show kicks off with a deep dive into what the Johansen-Jones trade means for both the players who swapped teams, and the rest of the guys who will be shuffled and shifted around the Columbus and Nashville rosters as a result.In our Outjuries, we look at a 60 point-plus LA King not named Kopitar or Toffoli, a phenom-in-the-making re-entering the Bruins lineup, a recovered goalie who actually stayed that way long enough to make a start this time around, and a fiery Coyote who's getting more help than usual from his teammates.We also look at the impact of injuries to top line fixtures in New Jersey, Calgary and St Louis, and suggest you quickly grab a goalie who could get some games in on a very good team depending on the severity of his teammate's injury.Our Players of Note this week include a couple goalies about whom you can comfortably stop tweeting us questions, a great spot starter in an Eastern Conference crease, and a couple top line producers out West.Finally, the show closes out with a whack of Snoozers, including a couple perennial favourites who have failed to deliver by the midway point, and an apparent false start from a former 30 goal scorer.Players discussed on this episode include Ryan Johansen, Seth Jones, Alexander Wennberg, Mattias Ekholm, Connor Hellebuyck, Louis Domingue, David Pastrnak, Martin Hanzal, Shane Doan, James Reimer, Jonathan Bernier, Jiri Hudler, Joe Colborne, Mike Cammalleri, James Neal, Mike Ribeiro, Ryan Ellis, Adam Henrique, Brian Elliott, Colton Parayko, Lee Stempniak, Kyle Palmieri, Tobias Rieder, Sean Monahan, Johnny Gaudreau, Jeff Carter, Tanner Pearson, Robin Lehner, Nail Yakupov, Teddy Purcell, Jay Bouwmeester, Jake Allen, Paul Stastny, Linus Ullmark, Chad Johnson, Patrick Sharp, Alex Goligoski, Andrew Ladd, Jason Pominville, Jeff Skinner, Brandon Dubinsky, Tomas Hertl, Al Montoya, Chris Kunitz, Sidney Crosby, Patric Hornqvist, 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. 85 - For Real, Son
More than a quarter of the way into the season, it's time to take a serious look at some of the star players that have been slumping on your team and decide if they are worth holding on to or if it's time to cut bait.In this week's episode Elan and Brian take on this unpleasant task and let you know which guys are worth waiting for, and which ones should start preparing for a new home in free agency. Of course it's not all bad news. After this slew of slumping superstars, the show ends on a high note as Elan and Brian discuss a number of players on hot streaks that you may want to get on your team before it's too late.Players discussed on this episode include: Ben Bishop, Devan Dubnyk, Kyle Turis, Patric Hornqvist, Jakub Voracek, Jordan Eberle, Radim Vrbata, Pekka Rinne, Joe Thornton, Joe Pavelski, John Gibson, Sergei Bobrovski, Anders Nillson, Evander Kane, Mikael Granlund, Carl Soderberg, Michael Del Zotto, Valeri Nichushkin, Oscar Lindberg, Elias Lindholm, Jeff Skinner, Marian Gaborik, Mike Green, 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. 84 - Young Hellebuyck
Stuffing: both a delicious part of a Thanksgiving meal, and the act of covering as many players and teams as possible on the latest episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast!Elan and Brian talk turkeys and non-turkeys alike on this edition of the show, with attention paid right off the bat to injuries and flu-like symptoms in the Montreal, Winnipeg and Anaheim creases.A glut of injuries and Outjuries take centre stage throughout the show, as we look to find value in player promotions in Buffalo, Montreal, New York, St. Louis, New Jersey and Edmonton.We also have a look at the curious case of an NHL veteran who is suddenly upping his shooting and goal-scoring numbers to levels not seen since the prime of his career, and another longtime producer who may be finding his game again after a disastrous outing in 2014-15.This episode also includes a look at a few snoozers around the league (one at each position!), a couple depth D streaming options, a number of top producers who deserve kudos for their work so far this season, and a very cringeworthy/barely sensible pun.Players discussed on this episode include: Mike Condon, Alex Galchenyuk, Connor Hellebuyck, Evander Kane, Ryan Strome, John Gibson, Jason Spezza, Thomas Vanek, Evgeni Malkin, Sidney Crosby, Patric Hornqvist, Brandon Pirri, Paul Stastny, David Savard, Colton Parayko, Kevin Shattenkirk, Sam Reinhart, Ryan Johansen, Brandon Saad, Boone Jenner, Jack Johnson, Chris Kreider, JT Miller, Derek Stepan, Justin Schultz, Semyon Varlamov, Brendan Gallagher, Carey Price, Jori Lehtera, Michael Hutchinson, David Backes, Alex Steen, Nail Yakupov, Tyler Ennis, Patrik Elias, Travis Zajac, Lee Stempniak, David Perron, Sidney Crosby, Kris Letang, Cam Fowler, Marc-Edouard Vlasic, Brian Elliott, Jake Allen, 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. 83 - Nilsson Schmilsson
On the 83rd instalment of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast, we increase the goalie content to lead off this week's show. 'Tenders are struggling everywhere you look, and Elan and Brian break down the short- and long-term future of starter jobs in Anaheim, Colorado, Arizona, Edmonton and Chicago, including some reserved excitement for a Winnipeg call-up looking to make a strong first impression in his hopefully imminent first NHL start.We then begin our tour around the NHL's hot streaks and line changes by lavishing unexpected praise upon a young Western Conference forward who has taken his share of beatings on the show over the last 13 months-- we tell you what he's doing, why you should be happy about it, and why we might actually be believers this time around.That roundup also includes a member of the family in San Jose, an ever-fluctuation Tampa top-six, minor shuffling in Winnipeg, surprising non-shuffling in Detroit, and obviously Edmonton, where we talk about a new entry into the top six, a recent exit out of it, and then go on to mention Draisaitl's name roughly one hundred and forty two times.The show also covers some likely free agent defencemen who could be good multi-cat and streaming options for the next shot while, including a Ranger, a Capital, a Flyer and kind of a Cane but not really.This episode also features a handful of snoozers peppered throughout-- these are guys who are likely owned in your league, possibly even by you(!), whose worth to their owners needs to be seriously re-evaluated. We tAnd finally, the show caps off with a Lightning Round featuring more players than initially promised, including Washington's scoring leader, a crowded second line in Florida, and a still-got-it scorer in Toronto.Players discussed on this episode include Frederik Andersen, Cory Schneider, Anton Khudobin, Reto Berra, Tanner Pearson, Tyler Toffoli, Vladislav Namestnikov, Nikita Kucherov, Mike Smith, Anders Lindback, Drew Stafford, Nik Ehlers, Teddy Purcell, Nail Yakupov, Leon Draisaitl, Jussi Jokinen, Evgeni Kuznetsov, Brandon Pirri, Shane Gostisbehere, P.A.

No. 76 - Dano Way
On this episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast, Elan and Brian share some notable trends they've noticed in their fantasy drafts, and help you begin to build your watchlist and make your first FA acquisitions of the 2015-16 seasons.After picking our jaws up off the floor, we go on to try to make sense of Dano's AHL assignment, and consider a multitude of unexpected opportunities presenting themselves in Edmonton and elsewhere around the league due to early injuries. We also openly wonder about the updated fantasy value of one of last year's most surprising starters, an under-the-radar pick from last year who was understandably abandoned by most of his owners, a young Canuck on somewhat of an island, and a couple new names making impressions on preseason scoresheets.Players discussed on this episode include Marko Dano, Artemi Panarin, Andrew Shaw, Jordan Eberle, Anton Slepyshev, TJ Brodie, Dougie Hamilton, Zach Bogosian, Cody Franson, Andrew Hammond, Craig Anderson, Matt O'Connor, Kyle Baun, Andreas Athanasiou, Bo Horvat, Jori Lehtera, Patrick Maroon, Leon Draisatl, Anton Lander, Nail Yakupov, Brad Richards, Dennis Wideman, Kris Russell, Justin Abdelkader 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. 71 - Friends Don't Let Friends Auto-Draft
Welcome to the beginning of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast's 2015 Pre-Season Series! Elan and Brian are officially turning the page on the offseason, and focusing now on getting you prepped and ready for those imminent draft day decisions.On this episode, we comb through the default draft rankings that dictate the drafting priorities of so many poolies, and then pick out the guys who are rated suspiciously high and unthinkably low. We break it down from top to bottom: from an overranked forward at 45th overall, to an NHL newbie ranked at 712th, and everywhere in between.Also, have Elan and Brian found this year's version of the Stastny vs. Pavelski bet?Players discussed on this episode include Kyle Okposo, Anders Lee, Artemi Panarin, Teuvo Teravainen, Nick Bjugstad, Alex Barkov, Torey Krug, Chris Kreider, Zdeno Chara, James van Riemsdyk, Ryan McDonagh, David Backes, Matt Duchene, Boone Jenner, Hampus Lindholm, Bryan Little, Ondrej Palat, Derek Stepan, Michael del Zotto, Erik Johnson, Ryan O'Reilly, Alex Tanguay, Mathieu Perreault, Shawn Matthias, Jake Muzzin, James Wisniewski, John Klingberg and more.Also, have you heard about our new fantasy league that we're designing from the bottom up to be the most fun, most competitive fantasy hockey league ever?

No. 70 - Crossing the Line
Every year, some NHL forwards make that esteemed leap from being pretty good point-getters to being all-out point-producing wizards. There's also the flipside: once-reliable top end scorers who find themselves moving in the other direction, to the point that they're suddenly not worth the high pick or keeper protection status that they've enjoyed for years on end.In this week's episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast, Elan and Brian pick out a handful of highly-regarded forwards that are crossing the line-- in either direction-- that separates the great fantasy producers from the elite. We go deep to give you all the reasons why some players should now be considered amongst the cream of the fantasy crop, and why there are others that you might want to let fall a couple more draft rounds than you normally would.Do you have a suggestion for a player that's crossing the line that we didn't cover on this week's show? Tweet us @keepingkarlsson to let us know who we missed!Players discussed on this episode include: Vladimir Tarasenko, Eric Staal, Thomas Vanek, Jakub Voracek, Daniel Sedin, Henrik Sedin, Ondrej Palat, Corey Perry, Nicklas Backstrom, Filip Forsberg and more.Also, have you heard about our new fantasy league that we're designing from the bottom up to be the most fun, most competitive fantasy hockey league ever?

Elan is declared the knowingest know-it-all even though he lost another bet already, and he immediately puts his title on the line as the guys make their Stanley Cup predictions.And finally, things get a little silly as we offer up our final round of tributes to the eliminated and hearty congratulations to the champions amongst us. Thank you for listening, subscribing, reviewing, tweeting, chatting and patronizing all year long. Players discussed on this week's episode include Jamie Benn, Evgeni Malkin, Steven Stamkos, Mark Stone, Mike Hoffman, Tyler Seguin, Patrick Eaves, Blake Wheeler, Kevin Shattenkirk, Rick Nash, Mats Zuccarello, Daniel Sedin, Henrik Sedin, Alex Edler, TJ Oshie, Zach Parise, Brian Gionta, Corey Perry, Duncan Keith, Jonathan Toews, Stan Mikita, Elmer Lach 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 Keeping Karlsson video broadcast!You can also support us by telling a friend, subscribing to and reviewing Keeping Karlsson on iTunes, and following us on Twitter (@keepingkarlsson).

No. 48 - Perrau-no :(
The 48th edition of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey show sees Elan and Brian trying to go into the All Star Break on a positive note.Our headlines kick off with a terrible, horrible, no-good very bad injury to one of the league's most exciting players of the last 2 months, caused by one of the league's least relevant and under-talented regular skaters of the last several years. I guess we're a little upset about it?

It's the 47th episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast, and what would be more fitting than to continue offering our insight into the latest fantasy news and cutting edge analysis that we've offered for the last 46 episodes? Nothing. Nothing would be more fitting.This episode is full of hot young guys-- though that doesn't sound right. Ok, this episode features a lot of coverage of prospects who are streaking. There we go.But before Elan and Brian get to them, they cover all the latest news in the world of fantasy hockey that you need to know as a contending fantasy hockey owner. Goalie injuries in Detroit and Philadelphia, the momentary reappearance of a couple point-producing grinders, the trials and tribulations of an elite setup man in a new city, and unforgivable player pronunciations.Then we get to the meat of the episode: a crop of players making their NHL debuts and first impressions while being given some lofty opportunities on their team's depth chart. We cover newbies coming on strong in Boston, Dallas, Detroit, and San Jose.Amongst our players of note this week are a goal-scoring bottom-sixer in Washington, a credible even-strength producer on the blueline, a scorchingly efficient power-play QB, an emerging model of balanced production in Calgary, a perfect ten hitter, and a struggling is-he-or-isn't-he elite 'tender.Players mentioned on this episode include Jimmy Howard, Peter Mrazek, Jonas Gustavsson, Jason Spezza, Johan Franzen, Joe Thornton, Steve Mason, Justin Abdelkader, Teemu Pulkkinen, MELKER!!!

No. 46 - Sustainable or Fleeting
We are officially at the halfway mark of the regular season, and the 46th episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast is designed to help you make sure you're in midseason form.Elan and Brian take you through the biggest fantasy news of the week, leading off with our take on whether David Perron will prosper in his new Pittsburgh home, and which Penguins will feel the effects of his arrival on the depth chart. Injuries and outjuries in Chicago, Toronto, and St. Louis also get coverage, as well as a detailed outline of the rough road ahead for Toronto and the inevitable regression of a very fast starter in St. Louis. Also, Paul Stastny's doing stuff!We then move onto goalies, where Brian opens up about the soul-searching that's led him to consider (re-)adding a goalie to our top tier, and recommends a surging 'tender who's waking up from a season-long slump.Elan brings back last season's ever-popular Sustainable or Fleeting game, where he and Brian run down several hot hands and work through the evidence to decide whether they'll keep cracking or flame out. The segment includes a suprising new d-man in Columbus, a we-should've-known forward in LA, an actual Flame, an efficient Red Wing, and a Keeping Karlsson favourite in (of course) Winnipeg. We also quickly run through three players who suddenly find themselves in fortunate positions on their team's top lines, and discuss who's likely to make the most of their opportunity.The episode's penultimate segment is our patented lightning round, featuring a blue chip G prospect, a barely-relevant defenseman, and the NHL's most quietly efficient even-strength goal-scorer. And finally, we close off with a snoozer that Pierre McGuire was wrong about.Players discussed on this episode include David Perron, Evgeni Malkin, Steve Downie, Kris Versteeg, Joffrey Lupul, Teuvo Teravainen, Patrick Sharp, Nazem Kadri, Peter Holland, Jonathan Bernier, Jaden Schwartz, Jori Lehtera, Paul Stastny, Carey Price, Kari Lehtonen, Colton Sceviour, Josh Bailey, Danny Briere, Johnny Gaudreau, Kevin Connauton, Jimmy Hayes, Vincent Lecavalier, Mathieu Perreault, Anze Kopitar, Tomas Tatar, Andrey Vasilevskiy, James van Riemsdyk, Nick Bonino, Jamie McBain, Mike Hoffman, and more.If you enjoy the show, please support us by becoming a patron of Keeping Karlsson. Keeping Karlsson patrons can join our patron-only Facebook group, take part in (and receive audio from) a monthly live Keeping Karlsson broadcast, and have their fantasy team personally audited by us every month-- learn more about supporting the show here. You can also support us by telling a friend, subscribing to and reviewing Keeping Karlsson on iTunes, and following us on Twitter (@keepingkarlsson).

No. 45 - Devan's Heaven
A wonky internet connection can't hold us back-- the 45th episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast is out!On this episode, Elan and Brian look at the re-emergence of a castoff in the Arizona crease, the Devils coaching change and how it might affect your willingness to have New Jersey players on your roster, and the addition of Derek Roy to the Edmonton Oilers.Brian also explains the concept of Quality Starts, and how it can help you make strategic goaltending decisions when it comes to deciding on whether to protect or go after your goalie categories.We also bust the mind-boggling myth that Patrick Sharp isn't doing alright, and shine a light on a couple Preds and Blue Jackets who are also doing just fine for themselves these days, thank you very much. A ton of players who've got about 20 points in about 32 games happen to come up all at once, and the guys do their best to find the differences between them and their outlooks for the rest of the season.And, of course, we catch a defenseman snoozin' on an otherwise-successful team.Players discussed on this episode include Devan Dubnyk, Mike Smith, Darcy Kuemper, Jake Allen, Jaromir Jagr, Michael Ryder, Damien Brunner, Evander Kane, Patric Hornqvist, Derrick Pouliot, Simon Despres, Cory Schneider, Patrick Sharp, Ryan Callahan, Mark Arcobello, Derek Roy, Scott Hartnell, Jeremy Morin, Nick Foligno, Jordan Staal, Eric Staal, Mike Fisher, Colin Wilson, Craig Smith, Mike Ribeiro, Tyler Bozak, Nick Foligno, Matt Duchene, Kris Versteeg, Cam Ward, Brian Campbell, Mathieu Perreault, Mark Scheifele, Chris Thorburn, Anton Khudobin, Nick Leddy, Johnny Boychuk, and more.If you enjoy the show, please support us by becoming a patron of Keeping Karlsson. Keeping Karlsson patrons can join our patron-only Facebook group, take part in (and receive audio from) a monthly live Keeping Karlsson broadcast, and have their fantasy team personally audited by us every month-- learn more about supporting the show here. You can also support us by telling a friend, subscribing to and reviewing Keeping Karlsson on iTunes, and following us on Twitter (@keepingkarlsson).

No. 44 - Deck the Hall
It's the second annual Chanukwanzaasmas edition of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast, and you know what that means: zero holiday references and the same pure, mostly unadulterated fantasy hockey discussion and analysis that you've come to expect from two guys who own Erik Karlsson in their keeper pools.Our 44th episode kicks off with headlines upon headlines, where we discuss the untimely slump of a recently-annointed top-tier defenseman, the debatable suckiness of a pre-season goalie favourite, three injuries in the crease and the opportunities they might offer to some unheralded tenders, the decimated blue-lines in Pittsburgh and Winnipeg, the ups and downs of an early Calder favourite, a coaching change in Edmonton, line shuffling in Dallas, and the ungraceful falls of some over-achieving goalies.We then have a short discussion on the merits of owning players who only contribute to a single peripheral category, and also bring up a team full of buy-low opportunities that could bear fruit for years to come if you act right this minute. In players of note, Elan and Brian give credit to an understated superstar, warn of a top-100 player whose point pace is slipping, address the questions they constantly get about trading away a goal-scoring star, and shout out an always under-the-radar but still effective depth scorer.The show rounds off with a snoozer from Elan, and a couple of sub-categorized snoozers from Brian, including a tribute to a former fantasy stalwart riding off into the sunset.Players discussed on this episode include Andrei Vasilevskiy, Steve Mason, Victor Hedman, Cory Schneider, Christian Ehrhoff, Olli Maatta, Simon Despres, Brian Dumoulin, Scott Harrington, Derrick Pouliot, Jacob Trouba, Keith Kinkaid, Tobias Enstrom, Paul Postma, Grant Clitsome, Dustin Byfuglien, Jonathan Drouin, Taylor Hall, Vladimir Tarasenko, Brett Connolly, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Peter Mrazek, Rob Zepp, Ray Emery, Justin Schultz, Eddie Lack, Ryan Miller, Kari Ramo, Jonas Hiller, Jonas Enroth, Mathieu Perreault, Mark Scheifele, Alex Edler, Matt Martin, Josh Gorges, Darcy Kuemper, Cody Eakin, Jason Spezza, Erik Cole, Alex Goligoski, Trevor Daley, Nicklas Backstrom, Justin Williams, Brayden Schenn, Jason Pominville, Tyler Toffoli, Roman Josi, Shea Weber, and Tomas Vokoun.If you enjoy the show, please support us by becoming a patron of Keeping Karlsson. Keeping Karlsson patrons can join our patron-only Facebook group, take part in (and receive audio from) a monthly live Keeping Karlsson broadcast, and have their fantasy team personally audited by us every month-- learn more about supporting the show here. You can also support us by telling a friend, subscribing to and reviewing Keeping Karlsson on iTunes, and following us on Twitter (@keepingkarlsson).

No. 43 - Has Somebody Beat the Wis?
Elan and Brian are back on their respective mics for a 43rd episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast.Buffalo is flying high and the Blue Jackets are red hot, prompting Elan and Brian to quibble about the updated fantasy outlooks of their goal-scorers and goaltenders. The guys also look at a couple shifting blue lines, and add yet another name to consider for the ever-growing top tiers of fantasy defencemen. Coaching changes in Ottawa, goaltending in Chicago, and an under-the-radar Jet round out this week's fantasy headlines.In players of note, the guys discuss the long-awaited emergence of a top St. Louis forward, the potential return to relevance for a nearly-forgotten goal scorer, and the concern of impending decline for a future hall-of-famer. Yet another Panther makes the list as he looks to definitively break a "slump" that's lasted more than an entire season, while a centerman in the West has broken out of a slump that was much smaller in length but not in fantasy impact.Elan and Brian also strike through a few goalies quickly in the lightning round before tagging two sagging forwards with the snoozer label.Players discussed on this week's show include Jhonas Enroth, Tyler Ennis, Sergei Bobrovsky, Scott Hartnell, Brandon Dubinsky, Jack Johnson, James Wisniewski, Boone Jenner, Kris Letang, Zdeno Chara, Torey Krug, Dougie Hamilton, Mika Zibanejad, Mike Hoffman, Bobby Ryan, Chris Phillips, Mikael Granlund, Alex Killorn, Evander Kane, Mathieu Perreault, Mark Scheifele, Michael Hutchinson, Ondrej Pavelec, Scott Darling, Antti Raanta, T.J.

No. 42 - Changing Trains
The Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast's time on air gets a bump but our players discussed per 60 minutes stays constant on our 42nd edition of the show.Shifting and evolving goalie tandems around the league are a running theme in our headlines, along with a couple injuries throwing a couple already-chaotic line combinations into further instability. Elan and Brian also deflate the tires of a centerman we pumped up last week, break our deafening silence on a leading Calder candidate, have a look beyond the stars and into Detroit's depth, and get on and off the trains belong to a couple up-and-down defensemen.In outjury discussion, Elan forces Brian to re-rank the top tier of defensemen, and we officially add a couple more to the company of Karlsson, Weber, and Subban.We also look at a handful players who woke up just in time to avoid earning the dreaded Keeping Karlsson snoozer label, though not all are able to escape such fate. Players discussed on this week's show include Ilya Bryzgalov, John Gibson, Antti Raanta, Scott Darling, Kari Lehtonen, Jussi Rynnas, Kari Ramo, Jonas Hiller, Martin Brodeur, Jake Allen, Nick Spaling, Corey Perry, Patric Hornqvist, Pavel Datsyuk, Tomas Jurco, Riley Sheahan, John Klingberg, Trevor Daley, Mark Giordano, Phil Kessel, Tyler Bozak, Aaron Ekblad, Victor Hedman, Erik Karlsson, P.K.

No. 41 - Blue Lines and Blues Net
The NHL season is at the quarter post, and as the initial wave of fast fantasy starters crests and heads for the trough, a new group readies to take their places in both NHL and fantasy lineups.The 41st edition of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast begins with fantasy hockey headlines, where Elan and Brian break down a key goalie injury and potential signing, the return(?) of a former fantasy main-stay in Detroit, a couple of newly healthy blue-liners in New York, line shuffling in Toronto, a struggling defenceman in Edmonton and an emerging tandem situation in Winnipeg.That's followed by putting some of the more interesting fantasy players of the last 7 days under the magnifying glass, and checking in on a handful of guys who are quietly seeing their fortunes turn for better and for worse. Minnesota's powerplay, Chicago's top six, and the top nine in Long Island all catch our attention. We also shout out a depth defenceman in a small market who isn't scoring but is making up for it in peripherals.Finally, the show wraps up with a look at a pair of players who may have made sense to have on your roster at Game 1, but probably don't belong there 20 games later.Players discussed on this week's show include Brian Elliott, Martin Brodeur, Stephen Weiss, Ryan McDonagh, Joffrey Lupul, Tyler Bozak, Nazem Kadri, Justin Schultz, Ondrej Pavelec, Michael Hutchinson, Marco Scandella, Alex Tanguay, Jiri Hudler, Matt Niskanen, Jason Zucker, Mikko Koivu, Nino Niederreiter, Ryan Strome, Nikolai Kulemin, Brandon Saad, Kris Versteeg, Michael Stone, Johnny Boychuk, Nail Yakupov and Damon Severson.If you enjoy the show, you can support us by becoming a patron of Keeping Karlsson. Keeping Karlsson patrons can join our patron-only Facebook group, take part in (and receive audio from) a monthly live Keeping Karlsson broadcast, and have their fantasy team personally audited by us every month-- learn more about supporting the show here. You can also support us by telling a friend, subscribing to and reviewing Keeping Karlsson on iTunes, and following us on Twitter (@keepingkarlsson).

Elan is back and Brian never left, so that means we've once again got a full roster on this week's episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast.The last week has seen some significant line shuffling in Dallas and Pittsburgh, where a handful of depth guys are getting opportunities to step into scoring support roles. Elan also voices his concern about another elite goalie whose numbers have yet to fully recover at the 1/4 mark of the season, and wonders about whether a couple of low-scoring teams are finally turning the corner, and consequently, whether some players on these teams might be moving towards fantasy relevance.Brian brings attention to some high-frequency shooters, goalscorers, and a buy-low defenseman, and then presents twoplayers on opposite ends of their careers that have been questioned as snoozers in recent days and weeks. Players covered on this show include John Klingberg, Cody Eakin, Beau Bennett, Brandon Sutter, Patric Hornqvist, Tomas Tatar, Cam Atkinson, Gabriel Landeskog, Patrik Elias, Henrik Lundqvist, Mike Smith, Devan Dubnyk, Alex Killorn, Alex Pietrangelo, Alex Goligoski (lot of Alexes this week..), Pascal Dupuis, Nick Bjugstad, Jimmy Hayes, Vincent Trochek, Jussi Jokinen, Antoine Roussell, Jeff Carter, Matt Moulson, Boone Jenner, Brendan Gallagher, and more.If you enjoy the show, please check out our brand new Patreon group to learn how you can support Keeping Karlsson in a new way. You can also support us by telling a friend, subscribing to and reviewing Keeping Karlsson on iTunes, and following us on Twitter (@keepingkarlsson).

A secret: in our "Around the NHL" episode released this week, there was extra audio footage that was left on the cutting room floor. But then we kept tripping over it, so Brian finally picked it up and whipped it into podcast shape.On this bonus episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey podcast, we turn our attention to the Winnipeg Jets.

This week's episode of Keeping Karlsson begins with headlines, followed by headlines, and then we enter into a headlines segment before finishing it off with players of note and our patented lightning round.We mention a goalie on whom the bravest poolies will think about selling high, a much-maligned star who will absolutely break out of an uncharacteristic slump, a buzzy top prospect that's quickly hit a wall, a young line whose members are all producing at an impressive rate, budding(?) goalie controversies, and a couple good candidates to fill a low-stakes rotating roster spot on your fantasy team. Brian also cops to a possible team-management mistake, though that's shortly after a very firm and righteous told-you-so regarding one of our most-queried about players on twitter this week.Players talked about on this week's show include Alex Ovechkin, Derek Stepan, Ryan McDonagh, Ryan Callahan, Jonathan Drouin, Nikita Kucherov, Dany Heatley, James Wisniewski, Nick Foligno, Curtis McElhinney, James Neal, Mike Ribeiro, Mikhail Grabovski, Ray Emery, Steve Mason, Chad Johnson, Jaroslav Halak, Ryan Miller, Nazem Kadri, Daniel Winnik, Johnny Gaudreau, and Michael Raffl.If you enjoy the show, please check out our brand new Patreon group to learn how you can support us in a new way. You can also support us by telling a friend, subscribing to and reviewing Keeping Karlsson on iTunes, and following us on Twitter (@keepingkarlsson).

No. 36 - (Don't) Believe the Hype
On this week's episode, Elan and Brian cut through the hype on several overachievers, and get as close as they ever do to buying into the hype that surrounds one newly-minted NHLer.Starting off with a look at this weeks injuries and outjuries, we focus in on one particular lineup returnee climbing his team's depth chart faster than expected at the cost of one of his teammates, and draw attention to a defenceman who could get a chance to suddenly step into a new and important role. We also address the sadly difficult question of which team's players you need to avoid the most.Listen on to find out which player was the most frequent topic in our Twitter mentions this week, which player isn't taking advantage of a plum line assignment, which goalie is redeeming himself early on, and which players have landed themselves on our first Keeping Karlsson-patented Snoozers list of 2014-15.Players covered on this episode include Johnny Boychuk, Bobby Ryan, Linden Vey, Pekka Rinne, Semyon Varlamov, Lubomir Visnovsky, Zdeno Chara, Cory Conacher, Dustin Brown, Bobby Ryan, Tomas Hertl, Anders Lee, Matthew Nieto, Jonathan Drouin, Tyler Toffoli, Dougie Hamilton, Nikolai Kulemin, and more..(And hey, psst... please check out our brand new Patreon group to learn how you can support the show in a new way.)If you enjoy the show, you can support us by telling a friend, subscribing to and reviewing Keeping Karlsson on iTunes, and following us on Twitter (@keepingkarlsson).
