On this week's episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast, Elan and Brian take stock of the early effects and subsequent Qs raised by the arrival of Coach Q in Florida, pit blueliners in Tampa Bay and New Jersey against one another, try to make something– anything!– out of Toronto and Pittsburgh landscapes that have been shattered by key injuries, and gasp at what they see buried in the numbers of last year's leading scorer and reigning MVP.
