Have a box of tissues at the ready, because this episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast begins with a sad tour of players who just aren't playing up to their name to start the year. We look at and offer our analysis on the biggest losers from Week 1.5 of 2018-19 NHL action who've lost minutes, linemates, points, but maybe not hope..
Then put on your party hats, because we'll go on a happy tour of players who've recently returned to the lineup (aka, Outjuries), and then some names that you're going to want to have on your watchlist as you do some early-season roster tinkering.
