The best hockey podcast in the world hosted by two guys who at one point owned Erik Karlsson in their keeper pools.

No. 144 - Allen Key

April 24, 2017

Round 1 wasn't over when this episode began, but it was by the time we were done, and we've got a whole slate of early lessons learned on this episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast!

Elan and Brian start off by attempting to rationalize all the surprises we've seen in the playoffs thus far, including two top teams going out with barely so much as a whimper. Playoff storylines aplenty are raised and dissected, including a couple huge goaltending performances, the emergence of a new member of Pittsburgh's top powerplay unit, the resurgence of a Cup-winning vet, and the possibility of Mr. Game 7 really being a thing.

There have also been a litany of coaching moves made already, and we take a look at a couple players looking most likely to be affected at this point, including two franchise cornerstones in Los Angeles, a face-saving goaltender in Buffalo, and a pair of first round fantasy picks in Dallas.

This episode also includes a look at what the offseason has in store for newly eliminated teams, including some difficult choices to be made in Chicago, an ongoing netminder conundrum in Calgary, and some soul-searching in Minnesota.
