No. 330 - In The Midnight Grubauer

Don't get upset: it's a the first summer spring series episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast!

Unlike the Lightning, Penguins, Flames and Jets, Elan and Brian come through with the goods as they review and construe the surprising results pouring in from the first round of the 2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs so far. They have a look at both sides of the upsets to see which players might be most responsible, and which teams may have deserved better fates.

Then, Jade and Lewis of @avgtimeonice don their best red carpet attire to present the Keeping Karlsson Ultimate Patron Fantasy League Year End Awards, aka the KKUPYs, to recognize the biggest splashes and crashes that happened in the KKUPFL this year.

The episode wraps with our belated tributes to those who won and lost in the final weeks of the 2018-19 Fantasy Hockey Season.

Players discussed on this episode include Mike Smith, Nathan MacKinnon, Cale Makar, Tyson Barrie, Sam Girard, Philipp Grubauer, Johnny Gaudreau, Elias Lindholm, Andrei Vasilevskiy, Matt Duchene, Sergei Bobrovsky, Artemi Panarin, Cam Atkinson, Jordan Eberle, Robin Lehner, Matt Murray, Evgeni Malkin, Alex DeBrincat, Martin Jones, Patrik Laine, Jordan Binnington, Jake Allen, Mark Stone, Max Pacioretty, Paul Stastny, Shea Theodore and more.

No. 229 - Hurdy Gurdy Mantha

It's all over but the crying-- tears of championship joy, we hope, as we tie a bow on the 2018-19 Fantasy Hockey season in this new episode of the Keeping Karlsson Hockey podcast!

We recount the MVPs and L(east)VPs of your fantasy playoff matchups, and search within the last two weeks for signs of things to come next year. We also try to divine a lesson or two that we can learn about managing our teams through the season and into the playoffs to help us get even better for next year.

Then, it's time for some classic experimental KK action, where Elan and Brian share their thoughts and predictions on the 2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs the only way they know how: a live fantasy draft of their teams for the annual Keeping Karlsson Playoff Patron Box Pool (KKPPBP). They also drop tidbits of fantasy playoff philosophy along the way. Listen and feel the thrill as they recite the names of the players in each box, and then offer their semi-coherent reasoning for liking one more than the rest. Even better, join the pool yourself by becoming a patron (at any level! even $1) of Keeping Karlsson for the duration of the playoffs.

And, fear not: Elan and Brian will still be bringing you brand new episodes of Keeping Karlsson all through the playoffs and summer, as they always do! Stick with us for all the hindsight, foresight, and continued analysis of the latest NHL news and notes that'll help you get set to win your pool (again??) next year. Episodes will be released bi-weekly, which means you can expect the next one to land on your device on April 22.

Players discussed on this episode include Anthony Mantha, Tyler Bertuzzi, Dylan Larkin, Andreas Athanasiou, Filip Hronek, Taro Hirose, Filip Zadina, Oliver Bjorkstrand, David Savard, Josh Anderson, Zach Werenski, Leon Draisaitl, David Pastrnak, Alex Radulov, Tyler Seguin, Jamie Benn, Mikhail Sergachev, Dougie Hamilton, Sergey Bobrovsky, Darcy Kuemper, Jack Campbell, Alex Georgiev, Philipp Grubauer, Patrik Laine, Elias Lindholm, Elias Pettersson, Brock Boeser, Ryan Suter, Shayne Gostisbehere and more.

No. 228 - Trouba Will Find You in the End

It's part two of your Championship Final, or it's the prequel to your 2019-20 title pursuit-- either way, this brand new episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast has data, analyses and factoids for everyone!

On this edition, Elan and Brian begin with a quick re-hash of last week's streaming madness bracket, holding themselves accountable for the choices they may or may not have made. They then look ahead to this week's best streaming options to help you bring your championship home, and how some situations may have some spillover effect into next season.

They also play a game of "Can I Drop Him?", where they bring up a bunch of names who've potentially been rostered all year but who might have little chance of contributing over the season's last six days.

Before the episode wraps, they pay tribute to the teams who've won fantasy championships in 2018-19, and wish a Happy Father's Day to those we've lost along the way.
