On the final episode of the Keeping Karlsson Hockey Podcast's 2017 offseason series-- pre-season series begins next episode!-- Elan and Brian are joined by Steve Laidlaw, who lets us in on how the Dobber Fantasy Guide sausage is made. He also shares his thoughts on some of the projections found within this year's guide, including a new Blue projected for a career high, a King looking to bounce back, an elite goalie due for an off year, and a Wild centreman due for a stock drop.
On their own, Elan and Brian take a quick tour of all the news that happened over the last month, such as a pair of signings in Edmonton, depth(?) defencemen added in Ottawa and Montreal, and a key injury to the New Jersey top six.
And, stay tuned for the end of the episode, where the guys share some of the new patron perks that will be available for this season of Keeping Karlsson.
