On this episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast, Elan and Brian cap off our four-part Offseason Action series with their analysis of the fantasy implications of player movement coming via the draft, trade and free agent market in the Central Division. We kick off with the most costly acquisition this offseason (in both trade assets and contract!) who’ll look to make an impact in Chicago, and work our way through the rest of the division in order from busiest to quietest during the last few weeks.

  • Is Chicago just the most perfect landing spot for Seth Jones?
  • Can Pavel Buchnevich hit 70 points in a new system and with a new centreman?
  • Is Darcy Kuemper in Colorado now worth reaching for in your draft?
  • How do Arizona’s goalies stack up next to other historically terrifying NHL tandems?
  • Who could get a leg up in the crowded Dallas crease?
  • Does David Rittich threaten to take starts from Juuse Saros in Nashville?
  • Will Connor Hellebuyck benefit from Winnipeg shoring up their D corps?


Players covered on this episode include Seth Jones, Tyler Johnson, Marc-Andre Fleury, Kevin Lankinen, Torey Krug, Pavel Buchnevich, Brandon Saad, Darcy Kuemper, Pavel Francouz, Alex Newhook, Bowen Byram, Shayne Gostisbehere, Ryan Dzingel, Carter Hutton, Josef Korenar, Ryan Suter, Braden Holtby, Jake Oettinger, Anton Khudobin, Ben Bishop, Alex Goligoski, Mikael Granlund, David Rittich, Nate Schmidt, Connor Hellebuyck and more.
