Keeping Karlsson (Podcast) – Blue Lines and Blues Net

Updated: December 1, 2014 at 9:48 am by Brock Seguin


The NHL season is at the quarter post, and as the initial wave of fast fantasy starters crests and heads for the trough, a new group readies to take their places in both NHL and fantasy lineups.

The 41st edition of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast begins with fantasy hockey headlines, where Elan and Brian break down a key goalie injury and potential signing, the return(?) of a former fantasy main-stay in Detroit, a couple of newly healthy blue-liners in New York, line shuffling in Toronto, a struggling defenceman in Edmonton and an emerging tandem situation in Winnipeg.

That’s followed by putting some of the more interesting fantasy players of the last 7 days under the magnifying glass, and checking in on a handful of guys who are quietly seeing their fortunes turn for better and for worse. Minnesota’s powerplay, Chicago’s top six, and the top nine in Long Island all catch our attention. We also shout out a depth defenceman in a small market who isn’t scoring but is making up for it in peripherals.

Finally, the show wraps up with a look at a pair of players who may have made sense to have on your roster at Game 1, but probably don’t belong there 20 games later.
