No. 75 - Undrafted? That’s Krejci!

How much stock should you put into the matchups that aren't counted in the regular season standings?

Call them "exhibition" games, and we'll casually tune in and focus on getting our couch grooves into game shape; but change their name to "pre-season" contests and we'll furiously examine their box scores and lineup cards to conjure up regular season implications. 

On this episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast, Elan and Brian put on their robes and wizard hats to do some conjuring of their own, picking out some of the more prominent exhibition pre-season storylines that should factor in to your regular season preparations.

Specifically, we highlight a handful of overlooked players who are making noise in training camps around the league-- some who are looking to renew lapsed production habits, and others who are looking to make their first real impact at the NHL level.

Players discussed on this episode include Tyler Ennis, Paul Stastny, David Krejci,  Elias Lindholm, Jeff Skinner, Teemu Pulkkinen, Yevgeni Medvedev, Joonas Donskoi, David Pastrnak, Evander Kane, Karri Ramo, Joni Ortio, Jori Lehtera, Michael del Zotto and more.

No. 74 - Bidding Hello

While you sit by the phone waiting for your Professional Tryout Offers from the Leafs, here's a brand new episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast to tide you over! Elan and Brian return to once again gather and dissect all of the latest fantasy relevant tidbits regarding your soon-to-be training camp competitors and more, letting you know how the past week's developments might affect your pre-season player rankings and roster moves.

On this episode, we look at a recent collection of signings, trades and training camp invites across the league, zeroing in on a pair of blue-liners looking for a boost in power-play opportunities and a couple journeymen goal-scorers hoping for the extra minutes that they may have rightfully earned.

Elan also chats with Not Another Magic Podcast's (and Keeping Karlsson Patron!) Jeff Good about how to prepare for your first auction draft: nailing down player values, setting up a budget, getting the mechanics down, and more!

Players discussed on this episode include Cody Franson, Johan Franzen, Curtis Glencross, Marek Zidlicky, Kris Versteeg, Artemi Panarin, Teuvo Teravainen, Marko Dano, Jiri Tlusty, Michael Grabner, Lubomir Visnovsky, Ray Emery, Brad Boyes, Martin Havlat, Derek Roy, Tomas Fleischmann, Lee Stempniak, James van Riemsdyk, Mike Cammalleri, Adam Henrique, Rasmus Ristolainen, Zach Bogosian, Johnny Boychuk, Nick Leddy, Frans Nielsen, and more.

No. 72 - Smörgoåliesbord 2015

Here at the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast, we understand that your roster's G slot is unspeakably crucial to your fantasy team's success. And so, to ensure that it receives the attention and scrutiny that it deserves, we are pleased to present to you the most-anticipated, muchest-awaited episode of our Preseason Series: ladies and gentlemen, welcome to this year's Smögoåliesbord 2015.

In this longest episode ever of the podcast, Elan and Brian examine the outlook for every single goaltender likely to see time in the NHL this year-- all the way from Allen to Zepp. We share our goaltending tiers that have been carefully constructed according to each tender's role on his team, individual numbers, and likelihood of team success. 

Entrenched Number 1s, tenuous tandems, dark-horse backups all go under the microscope in this year's Smörgoåliesbord, and it's essential listening for any serious fantasy poolie.

Players discussed on this episode include every single goalie in the league, so we don't really need to actually type out the list this week. Enjoy!
