Fantasy Hockey Podcast: Beat Interview Series 2020: Detroit Red Wings, ft. Prashanth Iyer

Elan Dubrofsky

2020-04-20

On this episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast, we kick off a brand new series where Elan and Brian explore the fantasy present and future of all 31 teams in the league by talking to the people who know them best: beat writers!

First up, we’ve got The Athletic’s Prashanth Iyer to tell us whether this Detroit Red Wings rebuilding season was supposed to go this badly. He also gives us his takes on what Dylan Larkin needs to succeed, which young defenseman has the inside track to quarterback the top power-play, and how soon we can allow ourselves to get excited about Filip Zadina.

Follow Prashanth on Twitter @iyer_prashanth, and check out his Wings For Breakfast podcast at The Athletic.

Players discussed on this episode include Dylan Larkin, Anthony Mantha, Tyler Bertuzzi, Robby Fabbri, Sam Gagner(?!), Filip Zadina, Dennis Cholowski, Filip Hronek, Moritz Seider, Jonathan Bernier, Jimmy Howard and more.

We always invite and appreciate your feedback. Let us know what you think @keepingkarlsson.
