No. 215 - Almanac to the Future

On this episode of the Keeping Karlsson Hockey Podcast, we take advantage of a short holiday-mandated lull in action to shed all kinds of light on how Elan and Brian are faring in their Audio Almanac player projections at the near-halfway point of the 2018-19 NHL season.

Elan's on vacation, but Brian is joined by Alma-maniac and KKUPFL tracker extraordinare Marcas to revel/wallow in the most/least accurate pre-season player point projections thus far. The Average Time On Ice crew-- Ben, Jade and Lewis-- also get in on the fun as we all try to figure out what went right, wrong or completely sideways for our crystal ball hits and misses.

After that, Brian takes us through some of the bigger news items of the past week from around the league, and Marcas helps take stock of which players are helping their KKUPFL owners the most at this point of the season.

On this not-at-all special, not-holiday edition of the Keeping Karlsson Hockey Podcast, Elan and Brian consider the impacts of key players coming off the shelf in Boston, Pittsburgh, Los Angeles and Dallas.
