Keeping Karlsson: Welcome Back Konnor

by Elan Dubrofsky on February 5, 2016

Fantasy Hockey Podcast: The fellas record a live show discussing waiver wire picks, the hottest lines and more.

For the first time ever, this most recent episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast was recorded live!

This week's show kicked off with a look at a couple of likely fantasy free agent top six wingers who can help your fantasy team down the stretch, so long as they can hold on to the coattails of their respective superstar centremen.

Elan and Brian then moved on to locating the hottest streaks around the league, pinpointing players in Minnesota's top six and on Ottawa's blue line, as well as taking note of Philadelphia's left-wing depth, an unleashed Toronto centre, and a Hurricane who is producing despite playing on what must be their third line.

We also looked at shifting lineups around the league and the subsequent opportunities that have become available, including an unlikely goal-scorer in New York, a top line rookie in New Jersey, and de facto depth chart climbing d-man in Calgary.

And finally, the show wraps up with a Lightning Round in which we take questions from our live studio audience.
