On this episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast, you'll hear the live recording, play-by-play and colour commentary of the Keeping Karlsson Ultimate Patron Fantasy League Championship Tier's Auction Draft!
The draft features 14 owners, drafting from 5 different countries on 3 different continents, building their teams to compete for ultimate glory in the most prestigious fantasy hockey league on the planet.
Brian is your host for the entire four-hour journey while Elan drafts, but he's got plenty of great company and analysis from a litany of guests and co-hosts along the way:
Michael Clifford, Associate Editor for Dobber Hockey, is there before the first gavel drops to help set the table and then drop judgments on the opening set of bids.
Meghan Hall, hockey-graphs.com contributor, comes in at 1:14:20 to give her takes on the auction action, and also shares her work on PK scoring trends, goalie pulls, and PPs that need fixing.
And Cat Silverman, writer for The Athletic and InGoal Magazine, helps close out the show beginning at 3:16:35 with her thoughts on how some of the more confounding goalie timeshare situations around the league might play out– and a very appropriate amount of Eddie Lack appreciation, too.
Brian is also joined occasionally by Elan and the rest of the Tier 1 auction drafters, as well as Victor Nuno and Interns Alex and Ryan. Shout-outs also go out to the children of guests who made themselves known and heard in various living rooms across the continent.
Please bear in mind that this show was recorded live!, and features all the wonderful snafus and blips you'd expected from an unedited 4 hour broadcast 🙂
