No. 201 - Dimitri’s Company

What do this episode of the Keeping Karlsson Hockey Podcast and the Hot Shots movie franchise have in common? They come in two parts!

This week, Elan and Brian have teamed up with Dimitri Filipovic's Hockey PDOcast to bring you a three hour pre-season extravaganza, in which all three put their heads together to pick out and run fantasy scenarios for the most intriguing players on every team in the league. Right here, you've got Part 1, where we roll through every team in the Western Conference. To listen to Part 2, which features the Eastern Conference teams, download the next episode of the Hockey PDOcast (scheduled for release on Wednesday, September 26). 

Also: the Keeping Karlsson NHL 2018-19 Audio Almanac is out now! Elan and Brian slaved over hot mics and keyboards for weeks to put together the world's first audio fantasy hockey guide. It all adds up to a comprehensive and exhaustive 32 chapters, 27+ hours of content, 285 player points projections, 65 goalies tiered, and too many arguments to count to help you win your fantasy pool and just know pretty much everything about every relevant player in the entire NHL. Head to keepingkarlsson.com/almanac to purchase, where you'll also find a link to download the first chapter for free. This is also a good place to mention that Keeping Karlsson patrons get 20% off their Almanac purchase!

No. 200 - The Karlsson Also Rises

First things first: Elan and Brian have not traded Karlsson. They are still keeping Karlsson. This podcast remains Keeping Karlsson. Anyone who does that is smart. Anyone who doesn't, particularly in actual real life, and particularly without getting anything of remotely similar value in return, is not. 

So anyway, yeah, here's another episode of the Keeping Karlsson Hockey Podcast. It's a pretty good one. It was supposed to be all about Yahoo Average Draft Pick rankings, which we were going to comb through and then pick out some guys who we thought were being picked either too high or were bargains being picked as low as they were. But then this other thing came up. So instead, Brian rants for a bit at the start. Then Elan refocuses on the fantasy fallout of Karlsson to San Jose. Then Elan invokes a bit of a Smörgoåliesbord redux by wanting to tinker amongst tiers based on recent preseason news. Brian is chagrinned by this and wants to refocus on the trade. Then they look at the fallout of Karlsson gone from Ottawa (spoiler: it's not good). Afterwards, the guys do get around to combing Yahoo ADPs as originally planned, highlighting a handful of market inefficiences on both the high and low ends based on fantasy drafting trends to date. 

Also: the Keeping Karlsson NHL 2018-19 Audio Almanac is out now! Elan and Brian slaved over hot mics and keyboards for weeks to put together the world's first audio fantasy hockey guide. It all adds up to a comprehensive and exhaustive 32 chapters, 27+ hours of content, 285 player points projections, 65 goalies tiered, and too many arguments to count to help you win your fantasy pool and just know pretty much everything about every relevant player in the entire NHL. Head to keepingkarlsson.com/almanac to purchase, where you'll also find a link to download the first chapter for free. This is also a good place to mention that Keeping Karlsson patrons get 20% off their Almanac purchase!

Players discussed on this episode include Erik Karlsson, Brent Burns, Evander Kane, Marc-Edouard Vlasic, Tomas Hertl, Timo Meier, Martin Jones, Aaron Dell, Jonathan Quick, Devan Dubnyk, Tukka Rask, Pekka Rinne, Jake Allen, Ville Husso, Corey Crawford, Cam Ward, Cory Schneider, Carter Hutton, Brian Elliott, Carter Hart, Michal Neuvirth, Thomas Chabot, Matt Duchene, Mark Stone, Chris Tierney, Brady Tkachuk and more.

No. 199 - Luszczyszyn-a Tova

No. 198 - Negrea-Knew Vegas Would Be Golden

We've spent the summer months on the Keeping Karlsson Hockey Podcast analyzing last season's performances, projecting players for this season, combing through depth charts, reviewing roster moves -- but what do you do once you've got all that info? Elan and Brian bring in the big guns, poker legend Daniel Negreanu, to help break down all of the tips and tricks you need to be thinking about to have an edge in your fantasy leagues on this brand new episode. Daniel shares his strategies for drafting (auction!), trading, in-season roster management and other fantasy nuances, before sharing his predictions for this year's Golden Knights squad, his Stanley Cup favourites, and a list of the NHL players he would draft for his fantasy poker team (which is a real thing!).

Want Daniel Negreanu to teach you how to play poker? Check out his course on Masterclass.

And, if you didn't already know, the Keeping Karlsson NHL 2018-19 Audio Almanac is out now! It's not at all too late to dive into our 27+ hour audiobook previewing the upcoming NHL season.
