On this hot and ready new episode the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast, Elan and Brian train their attention on a set of players who are far from household names, and likely available options in even some of the deeper leagues out there. They contemplate which of these deep cuts could give your roster an edge as we head towards the stretch run, and which of them are straight up dull.
The guys are visited partway through the show by Ryan Bolta, content producer for TSN's That's Hockey!, who shares his strategic and subliminal trade-making tactics ahead of your fantasy league's deadline. You can follow Ryan on twitter @iambolta.
Elan and Brian round out the show with a lightning round, looking at whose fortunes may be helped or hurt from injuries and outjuries in Pittsburgh, Vegas, Carolina, Anaheim, and Detroit.
