The best fantasy hockey podcast hosted by two guys who own Erik Karlsson in their keeper pools.

No. 93 - Welcome Back, Konner

For the first time ever, this most recent episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast was recorded live! 

This week's show kicked off with a look at a couple of likely fantasy free agent top six wingers who can help your fantasy team down the stretch, so long as they can hold on to the coattails of their respective superstar centremen.

Elan and Brian then moved on to locating the hottest streaks around the league, pinpointing players in Minnesota's top six and on Ottawa's blue line, as well as taking note of Philadelphia's left-wing depth, an unleashed Toronto centre, and a Hurricane who is producing despite playing on what must be their third line.

We also looked at shifting lineups around the league and the subsequent opportunities that have become available, inlcuding an unlikely goal-scorer in New York, a top line rookie in New Jersey, and de facto depth chart climbing d-man in Calgary.

And finally, the show wraps up with a Lightning Round in which we take questions from our live studio audience.

No. 92 - A Cure For What Ehlers You

On this episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast, Elan and Brian take you on a tour of your likely free agent lists, pointing out all of the players on upswings who can help your team make a pre-playoff push. We make stops to do some sightseeing of top-six forwards in San Jose, Calgary, Winnipeg and Columbus, as well as emerging names on the Anaheim, Calgary and New York bluelines.

We also take a look at a handful of very exciting Outjuries due to happen in the coming weeks, zeroing in on a multi-cat Capitals blueliner, a sixty point Blue, and a temporarily promoted Canuck.

Finally, the show ends with the guys naming a couple potential Snoozers coming out the all-star break, including a slowing Coyote, a Panther in a lull, and three d-men (two of whom we expect will be alright in the end!).

We also announced our first ever live show, open to ALL listeners! Listen live, participate in the chat, and revel in Elan and Brian's unedited slip-ups and arguments on Thursday, February 4, from 7:30-9:00pm ET. You can get set to join us by subscribing to our live event right here!

No. 90 - Bennett Like Beckham

Well, lookie here, it's the 'Double Sapphire' episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast! 

Young guns who shot blanks for months are suddenly going on runs; a trade gives two top six forwards a chance to reset and refresh their production; three fairly entrenched backup goalies taking advantage of opportunities to make cases to take on larger roles; a brand new entrant appearing in early projections of the top five forwards to be drafted next season; some blueliners doing stuff and not doing stuff; and some quick hits on a couple under-the-radar risers. It's all in here! Double sapphire! 

Players discussed on this episode include Sam Bennett, Bo Horvat, Sean Couturier, Vladislav Namestnikov, Jakob Silfverberg, Ryan Kesler, David Perron, Carl Hagelin, James Van Riemsdyk, Josh Leivo, Mark Streit, Shayne Gostisbehere, Frederik Andersen, Semyon Varlamov, Calvin Pickard, Jonas Hiller, Karri Ramo, Patrick Kane, Karl Alzner, Radko Gudas, Ryan Strome, Jake Muzzin, Patrik Berglund, Jori Lehtera, Robbi Fabbri, and Kevin Fiala.

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.

No. 86 - Hanzal Regretful

The streaks are coming in clumps, and in this new episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast, your faithful hosts Elan and Brian comb through them all to tell you what you need to know to keep your fantasy team chugging along.

Teams are streaking and slumping together around the league, and we'll tell you what we think of notable scoring trends in Montreal, Carolina, Columbus, Pittsburgh, Carolina and Winnipeg.

This past week also saw a couple goalies go down to injury, which usually means you should rush to add their respective understudies-- but are situations with the Blue Jackets and Coyotes amongst the exceptions?

We also share our thoughts on one big ticket sell-high candidate, a snoozer in the desert, some re-ignited Flames, a hard-hitting forward whose numbers compare well to the current multi-category skaters of choice, a surprising producer on the Carolina blueline, a Blue Jacket returning to form, a burgeoning goalie controversy in the East, the agreed-upon leader on the Sabres' blueline, and more.

Players discussed on this episode include Evgeny Kuznetsov, Alex Galchenyuk, Mike Condon, Rasmus Ristolainen, Nick Foligno, Curtis McElhinney, Sam Reinhart, Jamie McGinn, Valeri Nichushkin, Anders Lindback, Louis Domingue, Joonas Korpisalo,  Kris Letang, Olli Maatta, David Warsofsky, Logan Couture, Joel Ward, Tyler Johnson, Ondrej Palat, Tomas Plekanec, Boone Jenner, Joe Thornton,  Dustin Tokarski,  Sergei Bobrovsky, Brandon Saad, Mike Smith, Evander Kane, Matt Moulson, Patrick Sharp, Mikkel Boedker, Anthony Duclair, Michal Neuvirth, Steve Mason, Mark Giordano, Cody Franson, Dennis Wideman, Jiri Hudler, Dougie Hamilton, David Jones, Drew Stafford, Mark Scheifele, Mathieu Perreault, Johnny Gaudreau, Sean Monahan, Dustin Byfuglien, Michal Neuvirth, Steve Mason, Jeff Skinner, Victor Rask, Brayden Schenn, Chris Kreider, Chriz Kunitz, Ron Hainsey, and John Tavares.

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.

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.
