On this not-at-all special, not-holiday edition of the Keeping Karlsson Hockey Podcast, Elan and Brian consider the impacts of key players coming off the shelf in Boston, Pittsburgh, Los Angeles and Dallas. They also wonder how suspended players should be handled in fantasy hockey, get annoyed with a Red Wings defenseman, suggest you hold your horses in the Penguins' crease, give votes of varying confidence to a trio of Senators, discover a King yearning to hit the scoresheet, wonder whether things will be different this time for a Vegas journeyman, marvel at the lack of synchronicity between two Jets forwards, wonder when a Maple Leaf might eventually make an impact, celebrate the most average goalie in the league, and bemoan/try to explain a struggling St. Louis superstar.
