No. 187 - All the way to Rinne (Preds did not go far)

On this new episode of the Keeping Karlsson Hockey Podcast, Elan and Brian turn their gaze to Carolina for the first chunk, pondering the effects of front office changes and the tourney-leading performances of a couple Canes at the World Hockey Championships. From there, they take a quick look through the UFA crop to see if any one or two players stands to gain the most from a scenery change, consider what Nashville's crease looks like in 2018-19, add two halves to guess at what a whole might look like for two Tampa Bay superstars, simultaneously raise and temper expectations for a stalwart St. Louis forward, rank a whole crop of young d-men, and whiff on a couple of the organizations for which Ladislav Nagy played in his NHL career.

Players discussed on this episode include Sebastian Aho, Teuvo Teravainen, Justin Faulk, John Carlson, Jon Tavares, Evander Kane, Mike Green, Pekka Rinne, Juuse Saros, Nikita Kucherov, Steven Stamkos, Vladimir Tarasenko, Morgan Rielly, Mat Dumba, Ryan Pulock, Zach Werenski, Noah Hanifin, Max Pacioretty, Nathan MacKinnon, Keith Primeau and more.

No. 186 - Awesome Cowboy Will

Even as Elan and Brian are feeling the playoff high, they're already thinking ahead to what 2018-19 might look like on this this new episode of the Keeping Karlsson Hockey Podcast. After a couple more casual episodes, the guys get out their number shovels and dig into the data to see what's in store for the Sabres blueline after their draft lottery win, a not-yet 22 year old star in the making, a freshly-turned 22 year old star in the making, a people-think-he's 22 year old star who has already been made, and a well-past 22 year old former star looking to make his return.

Players discussed on this episode include Rasmus Dahlin, Rasmus Ristolainen, Aaron Ekblad, David Pastrnak, Jake DeBrusk, Patrick Kane, Brayden Point, Ondrej Palat, Wayne Simmonds, Zach Werenski, Seth Jones, Nico Hischier, William Karlsson, Jonathan Marchessault, Logan Couture, Tomas Hertl, Martin Jones, Pekka Rinne, Ryan Johansen, Roman Josi, Ilya Kovalchuk and more.
