No. 57 - Calling Doctor Jones

Don't hit that snooze button! Instead, give your head a shake, open up your favourite podcasting app, and push play for the 57th weekly edition of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast.

Star players are snoozing left and right at the worst possible time, going AWOL for your most important weeks of the season. On this episode, Elan and Brian work through the snoozing studs to figure out which ones are worth waiting for, and which ones need to be swapped out for the hot hand, pronto. Particularly close attention is paid to seemingly contagious point droughts wreaking havoc in New York, Nashville and Pittsburgh.

And there are plenty of hot hands to be found. We look to a recently-recalled winger in Columbus, a blossoming young scorer in Winnipeg, a "hot" Florida forward taking a big step forward, a Sabre that's offering a glimmer of his past self, and a new first line arrival in Edmonton.

This show also includes a look at the goaltending situations in Vancouver and Ottawa. Has Brian finally bought in to the Hamburglar hype?

And, of course, this edition features the latest injuries and outjuries, and all of their collateral effects on your fantasy roster and lineup decisions.

Players discussed on this episode include Derek Stepan, Patrick Marleau, Melker Karlsson, Chris Kunitz, Mike Ribeiro, Colin Wilson, Martin St. Louis, Rick Nash, David Perron, Evgeni Malkin, Andrew Hammond, Eddie Lack, Marko Dano, Mark Scheifele, Brandon "Pirri" Pirri, Ryan Miller, Patric Hornqvist, Kris Versteeg, Sami Vatanen, every other Ducks defenseman, Kevin Hayes, Boone Jenner, Tomas Plekanec, Tyler Bozak, Mikael Granlund, Jordan Eberle, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Cam Talbot, Matt Moulson, Benoit Pouliot, and Taylor Hall.

No. 55 - Giordanoooooooo

The NHL regular season is 80% done and the fantasy regular season is even further along, meaning there's no better time to check out the 55th weekly edition of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast!

The run of injuries to star players sadly continues, and Elan and Brian are here to tell you how to best offset the losses incurred to your fantasy lineup. The guys explain what the absences of blue-liners in Calgary, Winnipeg and Dallas mean for your roster going forward, and touch on the thud-like exclamation point on a sophomore slumper's season.

As the post-season draws nearer, your fantasy focus should be shifting ever more towards the short-term. With that in mind, we offer a few suggestions for some high-producing, low %owned players that could lend you a hand over their next handful of games.

Also, now that we've had some games played since this week's NHL trade deadline, we run down the first notable performances from players who have changed addresses. This show also takes a look at developing goaltending situations in Calgary and Anaheim.

And finally, we share some of our own strategic fantasy tips for getting the most out of your lineup. One point can make or break a season's worth of work, so we'll tell you how to cleverly manage roster moves, free agent pickups, and player schedules in your post-season matchups.

Players discussed on this episode include Mark Giordano, T.J. Brodie, Dennis Wideman, Deryck Engelland, Dustin Byfuglien, Tyler Myers, Trevor Daley, John Klingberg, Alex Goligoski, Nathan MacKinnon, Ryan O'Reilly, Matt Duchene, Gabriel Landeskog, Cody McLeod, Dennis Everberg, Tyler Seguin, Jason Spezza, Erik Cole, Tomas Fleischmann, Curtis Glencross, Michael Frolik, Brandon Pirri, Drew Stafford, Jiri Tlusty, David Desharnais, Semyon Varlamov, Jonas Hiller, Kari Ramo, Patrick Sharp, Frederik Andersen, John Gibson, Joni Ortio, Alex Semin, Andrej Nestrasil, Mika Zibanejad, David Pastrnak, Ryan Spooner, and more.

No. 54 - Trade Secrets

Apparently there have been some trades made lately, and we've got all you need to know about the players involved and their fantasy prospects on the 54th edition of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast!

With a smattering of NHLers changing addresses in the last week, depth charts around the league are shifting quickly. Elan and Brian break down the (mis)fortunes of the players directly and indirectly involved in each deal, and let you know how much use they'll be to your fantasy team for the rest of the season. 

There has also been a ton of intra-organizational movement in creases around the league, and we figure out which 'tenders are seeing the best opportunities to put up numbers for your fantasy playoff run. Brian both apologizes for yet steadfastly stands by last week's assessment of one such goalie.

We also take you through this week's players of note, including an above-average prospect in Chicago, a struggling sniper in Carolina, a new #1 in Buffalo, a sojourning forward in Arizona, and an unlikely streaker in New York.

Players discussed on this week's show include Jiri Sekac, Devante Smith-Pelly, Jiri Tlusty, Andrej Sekera, Daniel Winnik, Sean Bergenheim, Jaromir Jagr, David Clarkson, Kimmo Timonen, Niklas Hjalmarsson, Michael Frolik, Drew Stafford, Mark Scheifele, Kyle Cumiskey, David Rundblad, Nino Niederreiter, Jimmy Hayes, Patrick Shirp, Teuvo Teravainen, Kris Versteeg, Brad Richards, Ryan Miller, Eddie Lack, Patrick Kane, Scott Darlin, Antti Raanta, Andrei Vasilevskiy, Andrew Hammond, Mats Zuccarello, Michael Neuvirth, Kevin Hayes, Kyle Palmieri, Mark Arcobello, and more.

No. 53 - Bumper Crop

Everybody's back where they should be for the 53rd episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast

In one of the biggest twists in fantasy hockey podcast history, we turn our usual agenda on its head by immediately digging in to a sudden bumper crop of streaking skaters who could make an impact for your fantasy team right this minute, including a spotlight on a few likely free agents who are tallying both hits and points. Of course, Elan and Brian also go the extra mile to let you know roughly how many more minutes of prime production you can expect from these guys.

Next, we move on to recent injuries and their ripple effects on your fantasy lineup, including an opportunity for an Anaheim blue-liner, a questionable crease in Ottawa, a downed Jet in Winnipeg, and an inconvenienced duo in Boston. Outjuries this week focus on the back end, with defensemen returning in both Philadelphia and Pittsburgh.

This week's episode also features our look into what a change of address means for Cody Franson's and Mike Santorelli's prospects for production, as well as a run-down of the latest players to see new opportunities on their team's depth charts.

Players discussed on this week's show include Nail Yakupov, Max Pacioretty, Milan Michalek, Drew Stafford, Hampus Lindholm, Dwight King, Cody Franson, Cam Fowler, Sami Vatanen, Lance Bouma, Darren Helm, Ryan White, Kimmo Timonen, Mattias Ekholm, Mike Santorelli, Matt Beleskey, Rickard Rakell, Jakob Silfverberg, Andrew Hammond, Mike Hoffman, Clarke MacArthur, Dion Phaneuf, Mathieu Perreault, David Krejci, David Pastrnak, Christian Ehrhoff, Teemu Pulkkinen, Paul Stastny, Filip Forsberg, Dustin Brown, Ryan Kesler, Mark Stone, Jimmy Hayes, Tomas Fleischmann, Chris Kreider, Mikko Koivu, Josh Bailey, Anders Lee, Travis Hamonic and more.

With Brian away the Patrons will play. Elan mans the ship this week and has some help from the patrons of Keeping Karlsson to cover all the fantasy news and to dish out advice.

We talk about a couple of trades by a tanking team and whether the moved players will see a change in their fantasy prospects, as well as another tanking team and the players they're shopping. We then cover the newest slew of injuries to hit the NHL as well as some outjuries to hopefully ease the pain.

The show concludes with some surprising players on hot streaks, a new 1st liner in Vancouver and a potentially snoozing D-man in Boston.

No. 51 - Opportunities Knock

Although Elan's wish for no injuries didn't come true, our wish for plenty of fantasy news to discuss and analyze on the 51st episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast has graciously been granted.

About those injuries-- we've got freshly opened spots on depth charts all across the league, including starting goalies in New York and Ottawa, a 3rd-liner in Winnipeg, a power-play quarterback in St. Louis, and a top-six forward in Nashville.

Another recurring theme over the last couple months also shows up again in this week's gamelogs: unlikely players getting substantial looks on their team's top lines. Elan and Brian break down recent minute and opportunity increases for players in Boston, Pittsburgh, Long Island, Anaheim, and Montreal

The show wraps up with a classic segment featuring Players of Note, including Yet Another Panther, a mostly forgotten Star, and a couple d-men continuing to make their names and reassure doubters.

Players discussed on this episode include Cam Talbot, Henrik Lundqvist, Evander Kane, Kevin Shattenkirk, Alex Pietrangelo, Craig Anderson, Robin Lehner, Chris Butler, Jay Bouwmeester, Taylor Hall, Colin Wilson, Calle Jarnkrok, Tyson Barrie, Pekka Rinne, Ian Cole, Reilly Smith, Mark Arcobello, Beau Bennett, Anders Lee, David Desharnais, Tomas Plekanec, Ben Bishop, Andrei Vasilevskiy, Oliver Ekman-Larsson, Ales Hemsky, Brandon Pirri, Rickard Rakell, Roman Josi, and more.

No. 50 - L-sized

Well boy howdy, it's the 50th episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast! Thank you for your downloads, reviews, feedback, Twitter follows, questions, patronage and all-around support through fifty weekly editions. We appreciate it.

On this week's show, we get back up to speed after an eventful return to hockey post-all star break. Elan and Brian break down the the rash of injuries announced this past week and the ensuing ripple effects on the Isles' top six, the Colorado and Toronto blue-lines, and St. Louis' secondary scoring. We also welcome back a key winger in Pittsburgh, a fading blueliner in Long Island, a strong starter in LA, a journeyman suddenly seeing prime opportunity in Dallas, and a fragile Leaf who still has something to give.

We play another round of everybody's favourite game, Sustainable or Fleeting, to figure out what's the deal with a surprisingly persistent Star, a still-young Flyer defenseman re-discovering his scoring touch, an up-and-coming centre finally seeing bounces in Florida, and an outjuried Cane getting the chance to score again alongside his brother.

Finally, the guys weigh in on a handful of recent NHL promotions and AHL demotions.

Players discussed on this episode include Kyle Okposo, Josh Bailey, Mikhail Grabovski, Dion Phaneuf, Morgan Rielly, Jake Gardiner, Erik Johnson, Zach Redmond, Nick Holden, Tyson Barrie, Joffrey Lupul, Jori Lehtera, Paul Stastny, Patric Hornqvist, Tyler Toffoli, Mathieu Perreault, Lubomir Visnovsky, Patrick Eaves, Michael del Zotto, John Klingberg, Seth Jones, Aleksander Barkov, Jimmy Hayes, Aaron Ekblad, Jarome Iginla, Blake Wheeler, Jordan Staal, Ben Bishop, Andrei Vasilevskiy, Mike Richards, Louis Domingue, and more.
