Fantasy Hockey Podcast: 31 Beats – New Jersey Devils ft. Corey Masisak

Elan Dubrofsky

2020-05-28

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!

 

In this episode Elan is joined by The Athletic’s Corey Masisak to talk about the New Jersey Devils’ disappointing 2019/20 season and some reasons to think things could be a lot better next year. Topics discussed include:

 

  • What caused the turnaround after Hall was traded?
  • Will Gusev build on his strong last few months?
  • Can Bratt put together a full consistent season?
  • Will Hischier have a 4th year breakout?
  • Should expectations be lowered for Hughes after a weak rookie season?
  • Any reason not to expect Palmieri to continue pacing for 54-58 points like he does every year?
  • What went wrong with Subban?
  • Who’s the frontrunner to QB PP1 next season?
  • Also who’s the frontrunner to coach the team next season?
  • Is Blackwood now the ingrained #1 goalie? And is the plan for Schneider to hang in as backup?
  • and more!
