Fantasy Hockey Podcast – 31 Beats: Buffalo Sabres, ft. Joe Yerdon
In the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast’s 31 Beats series, Elan and Brian are on a league-wide odyssey to explore the fantasy present and future landscapes of each of the NHL’s 31 teams, gathering info by interviewing the people who know them best: beat writers!
For the second straight season the Buffalo Sabres started strong but then fizzled away from playoff contention in the 2019/20 season. The Athletic’s Joe Yerdon joins Elan to explain what went wrong and what the Sabres will need to do to right the ship. Other topics discussed include:
- Why did Jack Eichel‘s production tail off before the pause?
- Who’s good at winning faceoffs on the Sabres (spoiler: not many of them)
- Why was Jeff Skinner held off L1 all season?
- Was Victor Olofsson‘s rookie season for real?
- Is Dylan Cozens ready to take the leap to the pros?
- Is Casey Mittelstadt a bust?
- Is Rasmus Dahlin on track to become the next Erik Karlsson?
- How good is Linus Ullmark?
- Why does Joe’s Twitter bio say he’s a #NotedJerk?
Players discussed on this episode include Jack Eichel, Sam Reinhart, Jeff Skinner, Victor Olofsson, Ryan O’Reilly, Dylan Cozens, Casey Mittelstadt, Rasmus Dahlin, Linus Ullmark, Carter Hutton, Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen and more.
