On this week's episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast, Elan and Brian go deep into all that's happened in the NHL last week, and emerge with the reactions and rationales to guide your fantasy hockey team to another winning week.
How do two outjured (and one injured!) Penguins change the depth chart landscape in Pittsburgh? Do we detect an incredibly stubborn starting goalie decision pattern in Edmonton? Could an ever-disappointing New York center finally have an opportunity to deliver on his hands? What does a new goalie signing mean for the ones New Jersey already has? Is there any room for someone new to step up after picture-shifting injuries in Colorado and Tampa Bay? Has a top-six should-be finally arrived in Washington?
Also: surprising offensive performances in a couple cities you'd never think to look, the Rangers let down the one guy they never should, some wacky names in the top ten 5v5 scorers, an evaluation of the Canucks' for-realness, and closing the book on players who've let us down one too many times.. maybe.
