No. 225 - Yes We McCann

Have you heard of the latest genre of fantasy hockey podcast? It's called streamo! And this episode of the Keeping Karlsson Hockey Podcast is a pioneer of the scene, giving you all the news and analysis you need to get an edge ahead of the biggest weeks of your season.

Elan and Brian are joined by Stream Scheme's Davey B, and together the trio talks about how they tweak their strategies for the fantasy playoffs, and which decent and perfectly rosterable players might not cut it with bad schedules next week. They also cover the flipside: players who are normally FA fodder who suddenly look attractive because of some extra games played they can offer you over the first part of the week.

Also: what happened to Jimmy Vesey? Do we have a tandem in St. Louis? Does someone really need to score in New Jersey? Can anyone continue scoring in Anaheim? ..and, of course, plenty more.

Don't follow Dave on Twitter, but if you get the desire, listen until he end of the show for his handle.

Players discussed on this episode include Travis Sanheim, Phil Danault, Justin Williams, Jonathan Drouin, Josh Leivo, Brock Boeser, Elias Pettersson, Bo Horvat, Craig Smith, Mikael Granlund, Colin Miller, Mark Stone, Anze Kopitar, Drew Doughty, Dustin Brown, Nazem Kadri, Andreas Johnsson, Kasperi Kapanen, Jimmy Vesey, Vladislav Namestnikov, Mika Zibanejad, Pavel Buchnevich, Filip Chytil, Brett Howden, Pierre-Luc Dubois, Josh Anderson, Kyle Palmieri, Travis Zajac, Jakub Voracek, Travis Konecny, Nolan Patrick, Oskar Lindblom, Jack Eichel, Sam Reinhart, Conor Sheary, Gabriel Landeskog, Nathan MacKinnon, Mikko Rantanen, J.T. Compher, Alex Kerfoot, Derick Brassard, Robin Lehner, Thomas Greiss, Mat Barzal, Jordan Binnington, Jake Allen, Brayden Schenn, Vladimir Tarasenko, Jaden Schwartz, Ryan Getzlaf, Adam Henrique, Rickard Rakell, Troy Terry, Nick Ritchie, Jakob Silfverberg, Corey Perry, Cam Fowler Zack Kassian, Oscar Klefbom, Mike Green, Niklas Kronwall, Filip Hronek, Matthew Tkachuk, Elias Lindholm, Drake Caggiula, Artem Anisimov, Dylan Sikura, Brandon Saad, Brendan Perlini, Duncan Keith, Sam Montembeault, Dominik Simon, Jared McCann and more.

No. 224 - Enter Sanheim

Hello, and welcome!, to a brand new episode of the million-times-downloaded Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast! The road to two million downloads begins now. Will we get there before the end of the season?

With the benefit of having a full week of games played since the NHL trade deadline, Elan and Brian share their picks for the players who've seen their values rise the highest and fall the lowest as a result of all the dominoes falling not 7 days ago. The guys review the latest line combos on all affected teams, and pick out situations that they're liking and not liking for both team and player.

Your intrepid hosts also discuss the aptitude of a Hurricanes top sixer, the unreliability of forwards in Tampa Bay and Pittsburgh, the baffling case of one particular Blue Jacket holding down top power play deployment, the disappearance of a recently emerged blue-liner in Montreal, the quiet triumphs of an under-the-radar Penguin forward and Blues defenseman, and their serious, deep concerns about whether Ottawa or New Jersey will ever score again.

Players discussed on this episode include Thomas Chabot, Jimmy Vesey, Mika Zibanejad, Anthony Mantha, Anthony Duclair, Bryan Little, Nik Ehlers, Patrik Laine, Alex Tuch, Mark Stone, Brandon Pirri, Yanni Gourde, Tyler Johnson, Ondrej Palat, J.T.
