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.

No. 83 - Nilsson Schmilsson

On the 83rd instalment of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast, we increase the goalie content to lead off this week's show. 

'Tenders are struggling everywhere you look, and Elan and Brian break down the short- and long-term future of starter jobs in Anaheim, Colorado, Arizona, Edmonton and Chicago, including some reserved excitement for a Winnipeg call-up looking to make a strong first impression in his hopefully imminent first NHL start.

We then begin our tour around the NHL's hot streaks and line changes by lavishing unexpected praise upon a young Western Conference forward who has taken his share of beatings on the show over the last 13 months-- we tell you what he's doing, why you should be happy about it, and why we might actually be believers this time around.

That roundup also includes a member of the family in San Jose, an ever-fluctuation Tampa top-six, minor shuffling in Winnipeg, surprising non-shuffling in Detroit, and obviously Edmonton, where we talk about a new entry into the top six, a recent exit out of it, and then go on to mention Draisaitl's name roughly one hundred and forty two times.

The show also covers some likely free agent defencemen who could be good multi-cat and streaming options for the next shot while, including a Ranger, a Capital, a Flyer and kind of a Cane but not really.

This episode also features a handful of snoozers peppered throughout-- these are guys who are likely owned in your league, possibly even by you(!), whose worth to their owners needs to be seriously re-evaluated. We t

And finally, the show caps off with a Lightning Round featuring more players than initially promised, including Washington's scoring leader, a crowded second line in Florida, and a still-got-it scorer in Toronto.

Players discussed on this episode include Frederik Andersen, Cory Schneider, Anton Khudobin, Reto Berra, Tanner Pearson, Tyler Toffoli, Vladislav Namestnikov, Nikita Kucherov, Mike Smith, Anders Lindback, Drew Stafford, Nik Ehlers, Teddy Purcell, Nail Yakupov, Leon Draisaitl, Jussi Jokinen, Evgeni Kuznetsov, Brandon Pirri, Shane Gostisbehere, P.A. Parenteau, Noah Hanifin, Melker Karlsson, Alec Martinez, Dan Girardi, Matt Niskanen, Joel Ward, Mark Giordano, Jason Pominville, Cam Talbot, Anders Nilsson, Calvin Pickard, Ondrej Pavelec, Michael Hutchinson, Connor Hellebuyck, Corey Crawford, Scott Darling, Joonas Donskoi, Dylan Larkin and more.

No. 82 - Berra With Me

Welcome to the 82nd edition of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast!

On this episode, Elan and Brian give heartily recommend that you stream one or more of the league's current third wheels, putting top line sidekicks-of-the-moment in Long Island, Anaheim, Carolina, Colorado, Vancouver, Detroit, San Jose and Chicago up for consideration.  

They also find a couple recent Outjuries that could have a very immediate impact on their team, looking to situations in New Jersey, Florida, Chicago, Vancouver and Detroit, as well as injuries that open up some opportunity for blueliners in Philadelphia and forwards in Columbus.

And the show closes off with a lightning round, featuring a burgeoning(?) blue-liner with name recognition in Columbus, a depth option presenting himself again in San Jose, a regular shot-taker in Carolina, the creases in Toronto and Edmonton, and a kind of dynamic second-line duo in Ottawa.

Players discussed on this episode include Pavel Datsyuk, Jacob Markstrom, Duncan Keith, Reto Berra,  Matt Duchene, Patrik Elias, Shane Gostisbehere, James Reimer, Marko Dano, Brent Seabrook, Justin Abdelkader, Brock Nelson, Ryan Miller, Mika Zibanejad, Bobby Ryan, Teemu Pulkkinen, Mark Streit, Alex Barkov, Jonathan Bernier, Michael Del Zotto, Rickard Rakell, Brandon Dubinsky, Jannik Hansen, Kyle Okposo, Teuvo Teravainen, Artemi Panarin, Cam Talbot, Anders Nilsson, Elias Lindholm, Victor Rask, Tomas Hertl, Semyon Varlamov, John Klingberg, the Family Karlsson, and more.

No. 81 - Frankly Speaking

When Connor MacDavid went down this past week, dry eyes turned wet and poolies let out a sigh as they worked to figure out what the Oilers depth chart might look like 'til MacDavid returns. Might there be anyone to Leon in the meantime? All that and more gets broken down on this week's edition of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast.

On this brand new episode, Elan and Brian take a look at some top line spots being vacated and reclaimed due to injuries and outjuries, including plum spots in Minnesota, Edmonton, Montreal, Tampa Bay, Long Island, St. Louis and Arizona. We then recap the most surprising roster moves of the week, with a few potentially fantasy-relevant players moving between the bigs and the minors.

As always, we have a look at the hottest and coldest performers of the past week and take a look under the hood to see just how long their respective streaks-- good and bad-- might last.

And finally, we get around to formally introducing the first Snoozers™ of this 2015-16 fantasy hockey season.

Players discussed on this show include Jason Zucker, Mike Condon, Kevin Shattenkirk, Martin Hanzal, Ondrej Palat, Leon Draisaitl, Benoit Pouliot, Nail Yakupov, Zach Parise, Tomas Vanek, Colton Parayko, Joel Edmundson, Max Domi, Anthony Duclair, Alex Killorn, Valtteri Filppula, Jared Spurgeon, Ryan Strome, Kyle Okposo, Marko Dano, Marian Hossa, Dale Weise, Frank Vatrano, Frank Banham, Frank Corrado, Colin Miller, Brandon Dubinsky, Ryan Johansen, Nick Foligno, Oscar Lindberg, Travis Zajac, Kyle Palmieri, Adam Henrique, Mike Cammalleri, Elias Lindholm, Morgan Rielly, Marian Gaborik, Kris Versteeg, Loui Eriksson, Teuvo Teravainen, David Desharnais, Tomas Fleischmann and more.
