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

No. 45 - Devan’s Heaven

December 31, 2014
A wonky internet connection can't hold us back-- the 45th episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast is out!

On this episode, Elan and Brian look at the re-emergence of a castoff in the Arizona crease, the Devils coaching change and how it might affect your willingness to have New Jersey players on your roster, and the addition of Derek Roy to the Edmonton Oilers.

Brian also explains the concept of Quality Starts, and how it can help you make strategic goaltending decisions when it comes to deciding on whether to protect or go after your goalie categories.

We also bust the mind-boggling myth that Patrick Sharp isn't doing alright, and shine a light on a couple Preds and Blue Jackets who are also doing just fine for themselves these days, thank you very much. A ton of players who've got about 20 points in about 32 games happen to come up all at once, and the guys do their best to find the differences between them and their outlooks for the rest of the season.

And, of course, we catch a defenseman snoozin' on an otherwise-successful team.

Players discussed on this episode include Devan Dubnyk, Mike Smith, Darcy Kuemper, Jake Allen, Jaromir Jagr, Michael Ryder, Damien Brunner, Evander Kane, Patric Hornqvist, Derrick Pouliot, Simon Despres, Cory Schneider, Patrick Sharp, Ryan Callahan, Mark Arcobello, Derek Roy, Scott Hartnell, Jeremy Morin, Nick Foligno, Jordan Staal, Eric Staal, Mike Fisher, Colin Wilson, Craig Smith, Mike Ribeiro, Tyler Bozak, Nick Foligno, Matt Duchene, Kris Versteeg, Cam Ward, Brian Campbell, Mathieu Perreault, Mark Scheifele, Chris Thorburn, Anton Khudobin, Nick Leddy, Johnny Boychuk, and more.
