On this episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast: it's time for another tour around the NHL, as Elan and Brian visit the depth charts, line combos, deployment and scoring trends of all 31 teams and offer at least one fantasy take for each of them. Except the Oilers, where they somehow end up talking about Matt Duchene, but then make up for it a little bit at the end. Our sincerest apologies to Edmonton.


Through their league travels, the guys dig in to answer:

  • Can Ovechkin and Burns keep fighting father time for the rest of the season?
  • Does it matter who Anthony Mantha plays with now that he's back from injury?
  • Are there a couple sneaky top six options in St. Louis?
  • Can mid-sixers in Tampa Bay and Pittsburgh transcend their career numbers to begin something new?
  • Do we have a goaltending controversy in Carolina, San Jose or Nashville?
  • Who is the best Senator to own?
  • …and more!
