Keeping Karlsson: No. 112 – Elite No More?

Fantasy Hockey Podcast: Players who no longer deserve the honor of an early-round pick…


On last week's edition of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast, Elan and Brian chatted about players on the verge of becoming must-pick guys in the first couple rounds of your draft. This week, they have a look at the other side of that coin: players who no longer deserve the honor of those early round draft picks. The show kicks off with your fantasy spin on the latest news from around the NHL, including the thrilling conclusion of VeseyWatch and its implications on an oddly deep F corps in New York, a newly acquired top six candidate in Dallas, an under-the-radar backup in Toronto, a new face behind the bench in Colorado, and a new prospect acquired in Arizona whose name definitely rhymes with "house" and not "news."


Next, your fearless prognosticators name their candidates for players that inspire skepticism when you see them slated once again to get picked in the early rounds. Elan and Brian dig into a couple of vets reuniting with their first coach, a centerman who saw a change of scenery halfway through last year, another centerman who is watching the scenery change around him, a potentially post-peak goal-scoring winger, and a recently ascended PPQB who was working through injury last year. Players discussed on this episode include Jimmy Vesey, Brandon Pirri, Ryan McDonagh, Jiri Hudler, Jason Spezza, Valeri Nichushkin, Jhonas Enroth, Frederik Andersen, Calvin Pickard, Lawson Crouse, Corey Perry, Ryan Getzlaf, Henrik Zetterberg, Jonathan Toews and the ghosts of LW past, Marian Hossa, Ryan Johansen, Nick Foligno, Max Pacioretty, Alex Galchenyuk, Nathan Gerbe, Michael Grabner, Matt Niskanen, John Carlson and more.
