We don't get no bye weeks over here– even though everyone else is kicking back, we're at it again for another new episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast! If you thought there was no NHL news, notes and analysis to discuss during the All-Star break that could help you get an edge for your fantasy team.. you know us better than that.
Elan and Brian begin the week by considering the possibility that regression– gasp!– just ain't gonna come to a player who has successfully avoided it for 45-50 games, and that morphs into talk of the Gambler's Fallacy and coin-flipping and the colors of roulette wheels.
From there, they review where goalie loyalties might lie in Montreal, Nashville, Colorado and Washington, dig into some sad slumpers in Nashville and Winnipeg, herald some happy hotties in Calgary, Carolina, San Jose, Los Angeles and New York, discuss how Timo Meier can make history, and also share some names of players who were great not so long ago, but then blew it last year, but now are back to doing their thing in 2018-19.

Subban, Ryan Ellis, Ryan Johansen, Pekka Rinne, Juuse Saros, Semyon Varlamov, Philipp Grubauer, Carl Soderberg, Braden Holtby, Pheonix Copley, Jaccob Slavin, Noah Hanifin, Nino Niederreiter, Frank Vatrano, Roberto Luongo, Auston Matthews, T.J.
