No. 112 - Elite No More?

On last week's edition of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast, Elan and Brian chatted about players on the verge of becoming must-pick guys in the first couple rounds of your draft. This week, they have a look at the other side of that coin: players who no longer deserve the honour of those early round draft picks.

The show kicks off with your fantasy spin on the latest news from around the NHL, including the thrilling conclusion of VeseyWatch and its implications on an oddly deep F corps in New York, a newly acquired top six candidate in Dallas, an under-the-radar backup in Toronto, a new face behind the bench in Colorado, and a new prospect acquired in Arizona whose name definitely rhymes with "house" and not "news."

Next, your fearless prognosticators name their candidates for players that inspire skepticism when you see them slated once again to get picked in the early rounds. Elan and Brian dig into a couple of vets reuniting with their first coach, a centreman who saw a change of scenery halfway through last year, another centreman who is watching the scenery change around him, a potentially post-peak goal-scoring winger, and a recently ascended PPQB who was working through injury last year.
Players discussed on this episode include Jimmy Vesey, Brandon Pirri, Ryan McDonagh, Jiri Hudler, Jason Spezza, Valeri Nichushkin, Jhonas Enroth, Frederik Andersen, Calvin Pickard, Lawson Crouse, Corey Perry, Ryan Getzlaf, Henrik Zetterberg, Jonathan Toews and the ghosts of LW past, Marian Hossa, Ryan Johansen, Nick Foligno, Max Pacioretty, Alex Galchenyuk, Nathan Gerbe, Michael Grabner, Matt Niskanen, John Carlson and more.

Bonus Episode: Auction Draft Strategies Part 2 with Jeff Good

With the summer series coming to an end we've decided to squeeze in a bonus episode before we go back to our weekly format. Back on episode 74 Keeping Karlsson Patron and auction draft expert Jeff Good came on to share some of his auction expertise. With drafts fast approaching we decided to have Jeff back to build on last year's discussion. There's definitely lots of useful information here for anyone interested in participating in an auction draft at some point.

Also this episode features the debut of our interview theme song created by the great Pat Roach.

No. 111 - Newly l33t

As we draw ever nearer to September, the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast knows it's absolutely time for the seeds of draft prep to start being sown. 

On this brand new episode, Elan and Brian begin by sifting through the latest hockey headlines for fantasy relevance, including an opening behind the bench in Colorado, a new Duck whose career may be ready to quack, an opportunity in Arizona for a redeemed Vrbata, and the guys that may beat the Wis on the Tampa depth chart.

Your co-hosts then spend the rest of the show debating whether or not to bestow the vaunted 'elite'/'1337' tag upon players by virtue of their outstanding performances in 2015-16.

Players discussed on this episode include Tyson Barrie, Calvin Pickard, Matt Duchene, Antoine Vermette, Radim Vrbata, James Wisniewski, Connor McDavid, Johnny Gaudreau, Artemi Panarin, Aleksander Barkov, Brian Campbell, Patrick Kane, Evgeny Kuznetsov, Nicklas Backstrom, Brent Burns, Dan Boyle, John Klingberg, Nikita Kucherov and more.

No. 110 - Fantasy Hockey Architecture 201

Last summer, Elan and Brian offered up a crash course on how to design an awesome fantasy hockey league.

They also give you a window into their thought processes as they try to make the KKUPFL more ultimate than ever, including the categories and league settings that most piqued their interest as they ready the KKUPFL for the 2016-17 season. 

Players discussed on this episode include Antoine Vermette, and previous incarnations of Roman Josi, Matt Martin, Phil Kessel, Matt Murray, James van Riemsdyk, Tyler Bozak, Mike Condon, Carey Price, and more.
