Welcome to another episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast!
In early May, small news seems big, and we blow up some of the recent roster changes around the league, including a new number one contender in Carolina, a potential leading scorer in Vegas, a player to be named soon in New Jersey, a freshly-inked blueliner in Toronto, and a new coach in Vancouver.
Elan and Brian then turn to the present playoff rounds to find the players who are hot and not, and then discussing the impact, if any, on their fantasy futures. The list includes a quiet rebound season and the next best players in Anaheim, a skyrocketing C and a pair of mirror-ish images in Edmonton, depth D stepping up in St Louis and Nashville, a playoff hero in Ottawa, the best Rangers to draft next year, a couple of elite but aging Pittsburgh forwards, and the newest member of Washington's third line.
