Elan and Brian are back on their respective mics for a 43rd episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast.
Buffalo is flying high and the Blue Jackets are red hot, prompting Elan and Brian to quibble about the updated fantasy outlooks of their goal-scorers and goaltenders. The guys also look at a couple shifting blue lines, and add yet another name to consider for the ever-growing top tiers of fantasy defencemen. Coaching changes in Ottawa, goaltending in Chicago, and an under-the-radar Jet round out this week’s fantasy headlines.
In players of note, the guys discuss the long-awaited emergence of a top St. Louis forward, the potential return to relevance for a nearly-forgotten goal scorer, and the concern of impending decline for a future hall-of-famer. Yet another Panther makes the list as he looks to definitively break a “slump” that’s lasted more than an entire season, while a centerman in the West has broken out of a slump that was much smaller in length but not in fantasy impact.
Elan and Brian also strike through a few goalies quickly in the lightning round before tagging two sagging forwards with the snoozer label.
