No. 188 - Seventy Times Two?

Inspired by our May Patroncast (which you can unlock by being a patron!), this episode of the Keeping Karlsson Hockey Podcast has Elan and Brian looking to the brand-spanking-newest members of the 70 points club, and ask the very important question: are there any young people named Vincent? And also, can these guys get 70 points again?

Players discussed on this episode include Jonathan Marchessault, William Karlsson, Nathan MacKinnon, Mikko Rantanen, Mat Barzal, Josh Bailey, Alex Barkov, Vincent Trocheck, Sean Couturier, Alex Radulov, Patrik Laine, Brayden Schenn, and a couple more along the way.

No. 187 - All the way to Rinne (Preds did not go far)

On this new episode of the Keeping Karlsson Hockey Podcast, Elan and Brian turn their gaze to Carolina for the first chunk, pondering the effects of front office changes and the tourney-leading performances of a couple Canes at the World Hockey Championships. From there, they take a quick look through the UFA crop to see if any one or two players stands to gain the most from a scenery change, consider what Nashville's crease looks like in 2018-19, add two halves to guess at what a whole might look like for two Tampa Bay superstars, simultaneously raise and temper expectations for a stalwart St. Louis forward, rank a whole crop of young d-men, and whiff on a couple of the organizations for which Ladislav Nagy played in his NHL career.

Players discussed on this episode include Sebastian Aho, Teuvo Teravainen, Justin Faulk, John Carlson, Jon Tavares, Evander Kane, Mike Green, Pekka Rinne, Juuse Saros, Nikita Kucherov, Steven Stamkos, Vladimir Tarasenko, Morgan Rielly, Mat Dumba, Ryan Pulock, Zach Werenski, Noah Hanifin, Max Pacioretty, Nathan MacKinnon, Keith Primeau and more.

No. 186 - Awesome Cowboy Will

Even as Elan and Brian are feeling the playoff high, they're already thinking ahead to what 2018-19 might look like on this this new episode of the Keeping Karlsson Hockey Podcast. After a couple more casual episodes, the guys get out their number shovels and dig into the data to see what's in store for the Sabres blueline after their draft lottery win, a not-yet 22 year old star in the making, a freshly-turned 22 year old star in the making, a people-think-he's 22 year old star who has already been made, and a well-past 22 year old former star looking to make his return.

Players discussed on this episode include Rasmus Dahlin, Rasmus Ristolainen, Aaron Ekblad, David Pastrnak, Jake DeBrusk, Patrick Kane, Brayden Point, Ondrej Palat, Wayne Simmonds, Zach Werenski, Seth Jones, Nico Hischier, William Karlsson, Jonathan Marchessault, Logan Couture, Tomas Hertl, Martin Jones, Pekka Rinne, Ryan Johansen, Roman Josi, Ilya Kovalchuk and more.

No. 185 - The KKUPy Awards

On this new episode of the Keeping Karlsson Hockey Podcast: it's the KKUPFL Awards! Listeners/patrons/KKUPFL Champions Ben and Jade ran very scientific surveys and polls to find the biggest, boldest and baddest moves in this year's edition of the Keeping Karlsson Ultimate Patron Fantasy League, and join Elan and Brian to hand out hardware to the most deserving of the bunch in the first half (3/4?) of the show.

Afterwards, Elan and Brian run through some of the storylines emerging from the first round in the playoffs, coaching changes, and next year's fantasy outlook for a handful of players.

The show ends with 10 minutes of Survivor talk between Elan and Ben.

No. 183 - Do Panik!

After Brian beat Elan in sudden death OT for the Keeping Karlsson Bubble Hockey Championship that took place at the tail-end of the Ottawa listener meetup, Elan was very sad while Brian did a victory dance. As they said their goodbyes, Elan asked Brian to write the introductory text for this brand new episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast-- which features a listener mailbag, plus the latest injuries/outjuries/line changes/hot + cold streaks-- before the night was done. Brian, being such a wonderful and excellent co-host, and also the best bubble hockey player of the two and thus feeling sorry for his friend who wanted to be champion so badly, obliged.

This Tuesday, take on Elan and Brian in our Keeping Karlsson FanDuel listener league! Our contest opens first thing Tuesday morning-- there are limited spots available, so hit the link early to guarantee your spot in our game.

Players discussed on this episode include a whole lot of players that maybe will be named specifically in this write-up at some point in the near future, or maybe not.
