No. 206 - Tuch Everlasting

A couple starting goalies and a handful of PP QBs are injured slash playing as though they are, and Elan and Brian are here to break down your ensuing strategic opportunities on the latest episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast! They also muse on the possibility of line shuffles and coaching changes for some struggling teams, a couple new potential entrants for the 70 point club coming up on early season radar, a resurgent season for an oldie but goodie, and the likelihood of Darcy Kuemper being actually relevant.

No. 202 - KKUPFL 2018 Championship Tier Auction Draft: You Can’t Take it With You

This episode of the Keeping Karlsson Hockey Podcast features the live recording, play-by-play and colour commentary of the Keeping Karlsson Ultimate Patron Fantasy League Championship Tier's auction draft! The draft features 14 owners, drafting from 6 different countries and on 3 different continents, building their teams to compete for ultimate glory in the most prestigious fantasy hockey league on the planet. Elan and Brian are joined by  co-hosts, Keeping Karlsson patron personalities and KKUPFL veterans Ben B and Jade B, who offer their live takes on all the action and offer up biographical nuggets and horoscopes for the Tier 1 drafters.

Please bear in mind that this was recorded live! And so it includes many wonderful hiccups, snafus, bloopers and even a botched start to the draft, because nothing ever goes smoothly when you most need it to. "Elan, can you pause" is repeated often, until we discover that Yahoo only lets you pause a draft 5 times, making bathroom breaks for the drafters an extra strategical consideration and challenge. Why, Yahoo?!

You can peek at the draft results at this link: https://hockey.fantasysports.yahoo.com/hockey/2831/draftresults. 

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 all 252 players drafted, and then a few more for good measure.
