No. 36 - (Don’t) Believe the Hype

October 26, 2014
On this week's episode, Elan and Brian cut through the hype on several overachievers, and get as close as they ever do to buying into the hype that surrounds one newly-minted NHLer.

Starting off with a look at this weeks injuries and outjuries, we focus in on one particular lineup returnee climbing his team's depth chart faster than expected at the cost of one of his teammates, and draw attention to a defenceman who could get a chance to suddenly step into a new and important role. We also address the sadly difficult question of which team's players you need to avoid the most.

Listen on to find out which player was the most frequent topic in our Twitter mentions this week, which player isn't taking advantage of a plum line assignment, which goalie is redeeming himself early on, and which players have landed themselves on our first Keeping Karlsson-patented Snoozers list of 2014-15.

Players covered on this episode include Johnny Boychuk, Bobby Ryan, Linden Vey, Pekka Rinne, Semyon Varlamov, Lubomir Visnovsky, Zdeno Chara, Cory Conacher, Dustin Brown, Bobby Ryan, Tomas Hertl, Anders Lee, Matthew Nieto, Jonathan Drouin, Tyler Toffoli, Dougie Hamilton, Nikolai Kulemin, and more..
