No. 105 - Sweet chin music

On this episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast, Elan and Brian gab about whether Tarasenko is getting less ice time than he should be, developing goalie situations in San Jose and St Louis, a stud whose playoff scoring was stunted, the HBK line, a smattering of Panthers, the fantasy outlook of several members of the 2014 draft class who are coming off impressive rookie campaigns, and Kyle Palmieri, because why not?

No. 104 - I Was Saying Bou-cher

The Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast's Summer Series rolls on, as Elan and Brian continue to single out players who offered pleasantly surprising production in the 2015-16 NHL regular season, and look under the hood to see whether or not you can rely on them to do it again in 2016-17.

Right off the bat, Elan is entertained as he goads Brian into blowing off some steam about the Ottawa Senators coaching situation, before the two of them move on to consider the possibilities of bench boss impacts around the league. 

The guys also chat about a couple second-string goaltenders who might be affecting future outlooks and values for the guys who spent the bulk of 2015-16 ahead of them on the depth chart, and they sift through 10 years of rookie performances to come up with a ceiling and a floor for presumptive first overall pick and future Maple Leaf (gasp!) Auston Matthews.

Players discussed on this episode include Auston Matthews, Matt Murray, Thomas Greiss, Jaro Halak, Marc-Andre Fleury, Joe Thornton, Mark Giordano, Ryan Kesler, Jaromir Jagr, Jussi Jokinen, Patrice Bergeron, William Nylander, Thomas Vanek, Mike Hoffman, Jack Eichel, Dougie Hamilton, Scott Darling, Corey Crawford, Tomas Vokoun, and more.

No. 103 - Nineteen Ninety Quine

What can early playoff returns tell us about a player's production outlook for next year? On this episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast, Elan and Brian use what they've seen in the first week-plus of the Stanley Cup Playoffs as a jumping off point for getting into some of the pleasant and unpleasant surprises of this past season, and debating about whether we should be surprised if it happens all over again in 2016-17.

Players discussed on this episode include Vladimir Tarasenko, Nikita Kucherov, Jonathan Drouin, Steven Stamkos, Henrik Zetterberg, Dylan Larkin, Brent Burns, Alan Quine, Evgeni Malkin, Frederik Andersen, John Gibson, Michal Neuvirth, Steve Mason, Andrew Ladd, Drew Doughty, Ryan Strome, Ryan Johansen, Paul Stastny, Ryan Kesler, Jakub Voracek, Claude Giroux, and more.

On the 101st episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast, we did it live!

Elan and Brian begin with an end-of-season mini-smorgoaliesbord of sorts, breaking down all kinds of injuries, outjuries, and erratic play from goalies around the league.

We end the show by answering a few live questions, and paying tribute to those fantasy teams we've lost along the way.

No. 100 - J.F. Berwhoube?

It's the 100th episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast, and we're celebrating like we've been there before, as Elan and Brian forego any major celly and proceed to once again motor on through all of the latest fantasy hockey news and provide the thorough analysis that you need to win your pool.

On this 100th go-around, we kick things off with some of the most notable Outjuries of the year happening at a key time, as three elite blue-liners make a return to their respective lineups with fantasy hockey championships on the line. 

We also keep an eye on the continued unlikely developments in creases around the league, bouncing from St Louis, to New Jersey, to Long Island, with stops in Calgary and San Jose on the way (granted, a terribly inefficient real-life itinerary).

Some unfamiliar names are heating up, including a couple Blues who are the unexpected leaders in team scoring since the start of February. Meanwhile, some very familiar names are cooling off, begging the question of whether it's time to cut bait with star players in Boston, New York and Vancouver, rather than risk running out of room in your semi-finals and finals matchups.

We also take a look at a call-up in Anaheim, a very notable outjuried forward in Winnipeg, the sparse bluelines in Ottawa and Tampa, a productive Coyote d-man with initials that aren't OEL, a couple role-playing Oilers who are catching our eye, and injuries and their implications from Tampa, Pittsburgh, Montreal, Ottawa, San Jose and more.
And remember: SeatGeek is offering our listeners a $20 rebate off your first ticket purchase! Just head to their website or download the app, go to your profile, and enter the promo code KEEPING before buying your tickets!

Players discussed on this episode include Scott Wedgewood, J.F. Berube, Justin Faulk, John Carlson, Daniel Sedin, Robby Fabbri, Henrik Sedin, Nikolaj Ehlers, Mark Letestu, Patrick Maroon, Justin Schultz, Dion Phaneuf, Michael Stone, Jason Pominville, Oliver Ekman-Larsson, Keith Kinkaid, Kevin Klein, Brian Elliott, Jake Allen, Paul Stastny, Thomas Greiss, Jared Spurgeon, David Krejci, Rickard Rakell, Rick Nash, Ondrej Palat, Tyler Johnson, Martin Jones, Paul Martin, Chris Wideman, Joni Ortio, Niklas Backstrom, Chad Johnson, Andrej Sekera, Shea Theodore, Cory Schneider, Anton Stralman, Matt Carle, Victor Hedman, Jamie McGinn, Brandon Pirri and many more.

No. 98 - Malkout

Oh, dear-- it's happened again. Evgeny Malkin's latest bust-up has left the Pittsburgh Penguins and your fantasy team in dire straits. But have no fear! Elan and Brian have all the tips and analysis you'll need to recover on this week's episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast.

Malkin is far from the only player injured this week, as we're watching depth charts shaken up around the league as the injury ninja continues his relentless late season assault. Islanders, Canadiens, Panthers, Stars, Ducks, Avalanche and Wings are all making adjustments accordingly, and we've got the scoop on who's playing with who, and in what role.

On the flipside of that coin, so many Outjuries® this week, too! This episode has our usual look and how players in Edmonton, New York, Columbus, Arizona, Chicago, Florida, Carolina and Calgary are re-entering the lineup, and whether they'll get to reclaim their usual spots or be forced to lie in wait until an opportunity presents itself.

This edition winds down with a list of players who are wound up! We cover a whole slate of lesser-owned players who are hot and ready to contribute to your fantasy team, including a Long Island blue-liner, a feisty Maple Leaf, an under-the-radar young Sabre, a rookie Blue, and an I-didn't-even-know-he-was-a Devil.

And remember: SeatGeek is offering our listeners a $20 rebate off your first ticket purchase! Just head to their website or download the app, go to your profile, and enter the promo code KEEPING before buying your tickets!

Finally, check out our recent appearance on the TSN Analytics Radio Show, where we guested to talk about the teams and players living in the Eastern Conference playoff bubble.
