Fantasy Hockey Podcast: Marleau Contraire

by Elan Dubrofsky on February 6, 2017

As on any given Sunday, go ahead and pop in your air buds– it's time for little fantasy giants Elan and Brian to help you remember the titans (and not-so-titans) of this week's NHL action in a brand new episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast! 

In this week's injuries, it's a real case of you don't know what you've got ‘til it's gone with a shelved even-strength stud in Pittsburgh, a still underappreciated centerman in Dallas, and a Lightning forward whose absences from the score sheet are now further assured. In outjuries, the guys go back to the future in trying to imagine what 2/3 of the Panthers' first line can offer on offense, and what that also means for former and remaining members of that top trio. They also head to the desert to wonder how excited it's reasonable to get about the Coyotes' likely top scorer, and then move slightly westward for a Kings forward who finally has returned to the lineup.

This episode's hot streaks feature your Cane(s) of the Week, a powerless Senators centerman finding his way at even strength, a meh Shark becoming more whoa, Cody Franson???, a re-established Nashville #1, and a challenger for No. 1 on the Columbus blueline. Cold streaks end the show, with looks at an ever-alarming press box presence in Philadelphia, an un-sprung forward in Minnesota, and a flickering Flame.

Miller, Mark Giordano, Shayne Gostisbehere, Mark Streit, Kris Letang, Conor Sheary, Jason Spezza, Patrick Eaves, Cody Eakin, Radek Faksa, Jiri Hudler, Devin Shore, Bryan Rust, Nick Bonino, Ondrej Palat, Tyler Johnson, Vladislav Namestnikov, Alex Killorn, Aleksander Barkov, Jack Eichel, Jonathan Marchessault, Jeff Carter, Tyler Toffoli, Peter Budaj, Jonathan Quick, Sidney Crosby, Alex Ovechkin, Max Pacioretty, Alex Steen, Paul Stastny, Robby Fabbri, David Perron, Jake Allen, Sebastian Aho, Elias Lindholm, Jordan Staal, Jeff Skinner, Derick Brassard, Pekka Rinne, Juuse Saros, Zach Werenski, Sergei Bobrovsky, Cody Franson, Patrick Marleau, Sam Reinhart, Robin Lehner, Michal Neuvirth, Charlie Coyle, Ryan Suter, Dougie Hamilton, TJ Brodie, Mikael Backlund, Pavel Buchnevich, David Backes, Ryan Miller, Jacob Markstrom and more.
