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

No. 193 - Pete Projects a Pack of Primo Players

July 25, 2018

On this special episode of the Keeping Karlsson Hockey Podcast, Elan is joined by NHL.com's Senior Fantasy Editor Pete Jensen to chat about how the NHL.com fantasy rankings get made. Together, they comb through the latest set of rankings and explore some of the more notable players and ratings. Elan and Pete cover the difference in value between forwards, defensemen and goalies, the PPQB situations in Carolina and Minnesota, the Panthers' top six, Tavares's ceiling in his new digs, breakout rookie and sophomore possibilities, why Carey Price finds himself between Cory Schneider and Carter Hutton, how the Nashville crease may sort itself out, and much more along the way. Pete also picks between the 'Elan' and 'Brian' sides of some of the bets the two have made on player production heading into the 2018-19 campaign.

Speaking of campaigns-- there's just under two weeks left in our Kickstarter campaign to create the first ever Audio NHL Fantasy Guide! Get yourself 20+ hours of content in which Elan and Brian visit, debate and project the fantasy relevant players on all 31 NHL teams in the usual Keeping Karlsson fashion in advance of the 2018-19 season. The guide only gets made if our campaign gets funded, so be sure to show your support before our Monday, August 6, deadline. All the details are available for you to check out over at keepingkarlsson.com/guide.

Players discussed on this episode include Erik Karlsson, Dustin Byfuglien, Dougie Hamilton, Jared Spurgeon, Matt Dumba, John Tavares, Paul Stastny, Artemi Panarin, Elias Pettersson, Rasmus Dahlin, Ilya Kovalchuk, Vincent Trocheck, Mike Hoffman, Carey Price, Pekka Rinne, Juuse Saros and more.
