Goalie confusion abounds on the newest episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast! Why are some of the best goalies actually awful so far? Why are some of the oldest 'tenders dodging regression for their 3rd year in a row? How badly should you want an awful goalie on one of the best teams in the league? What #2s are potentially morphing into #1b?
We also flip through a bunch of recently outjured players to see if our projections have changed for them since their last NHL action– including a PPQB and one-time starting goalie in the Atlantic, an old soul in San Jose, and a finally returned Blue.
Also, Brian mistakes Juuso Riikola's first name for Juusi. Please accept our sincerest apologies.
