    It's another bonus episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast! Are goalies really the Papa Shangos of the NHL? Hockey-graphs contributor and goaltending analyst Nick Mercadante joins Brian for an hour-long chat to try and demystify hockey's masked men. The two of them review the pitfalls of conventional goaltending evaluation, the benefits of Nick's new goalie evaluation metric adjGSAA/60 (aka Mercad/60), goalie ageing curves, and projecting goaltender performance.  They also put several of 2015-16's unexpected goaltending performances under the microscope, looking for clues to see whether collapsed goalies are due to rebound, whether goalies riding high can keep from collapsing, and whether 2016-17's likely crop of first-timer #1 goalies will have what it takes to weather their new workloads. The episode wraps up with some crease-based mythbusting regarding the effects of a strong backup on a #1 goalie, and whether enormous amounts of games played really can help a goalie thrive. Goalies discussed on this episode include Henrik Lundqvist, Roberto Luongo, Jonathan Quick, Sergei Bobrovsky, Connor Hellebuyck, Pekka Rinne, Tuukka Rask, Matt Murray, Marc-Andre Fleury, Brian Elliott, Jake Allen, Frederik Andersen, Steve Mason, John Gibson, Michal Neuvirth, Cam Ward and more. * * * Download this episode, subscribe, and review us on iTunes!

    Like a new baby being born into the world, Elan and Brian are pushing out a brand new episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast!This week's show begins by sizing up most impactful and relevant players who've flown the coop since the trade deadline, and the players they may have displaced. This includes a visit to Washington and St. Louis's even strength and powerplay blueline setups, the blue paint situations for the Lightning and Kings, the top nine in Minnesota and Boston, defensive depth in Pittsburgh, and a couple floaters in Ottawa.The guys then shed light on those who've come out bruised and/or battered, including Florida's sort-of-but-not-so-much-anymore #1 goalie, a Devil we know, a Sabre that had just gotten rolling, and a Star that never really had a chance. We also pontificate on the healthy return of an Isle blueliner.Some players are hot this week! They include a lower-key sophomore and a once again promising forward in Buffalo, a couple Taylor Hall linemates, a Habs goalie who may also just be considered as being back to normal, a Flames goalie who we wonder whether this might be his normal, and a Calgary d-man who we wish it still could be his normal.Some players are cold this week. They include a top six Penguin who otherwise looks fantastic, a sobering season by a Coyotes defenseman that has cut back on taking shots, a Canes blueliner still taking shots but not getting anywhere, a New York top six/niner who has lost his early season sheen, and a couple of Avs forwards whose performances personify the mess in Colorado.Players discussed on this episode include Jonathan Quick, Ben Bishop, Peter Budaj, Andrei Vasilevskiy, Martin Hanzal, Kevin Shattenkirk, John Carlson, Matt Niskanen, Alex Pietrangelo, Colton Parayko, Alex Steen, Mark Streit, Connor Sheary, Chris Kunitz, Sidney Crosby, Patric Hornqvist, Valtteri Filppula, Steve Mason, Drew Stafford, Michal Neuvirth, Ryan Spooner, Frank Vatrano, Alex Burrows, Viktor Stalberg, Roberto Luongo, James Reimer, Thomas Vanek, Kyle Okposo, Evander Kane, Ryan O'Reilly, Jack Eichel, Michael Cammalleri, Travis Zajac, Kyle Palmieri, Taylor Hall, Antoine Roussel, Jason Spezza, Jiri Hudler, Ales Hemsky, Travis Hamonic, Josh Ho-Sang, Nate Prosser, Nick Leddy, Johnny Boychuk, Carey Price, Alex Radulov, Brian Elliott, Michael Ferland, Mark Giordano, Oliver Ekman-Larsson, Mike Smith, Louis Domingue, Justin Faulk, Jacob Slavvin, Brett Pesce, Noah Hanifin, Matt Duchene, Gabriel Landeskog, Nathan MacKinnon, Mika Zibanejad and more. * * * Download this episode, subscribe, and review us on iTunes! If you enjoy the show, please support future episodes by becoming a patron of Keeping Karlsson.  Keeping Karlsson patrons can join our patron-only Facebook group and take part in (and receive audio from) a monthly live, face-to-face and interactive Keeping Karlsson recording! You can also support us by telling a friend, subscribing to and reviewing Keeping Karlsson on iTunes, and following us on Twitter (@keepingkarlsson).

    Roster moves around the league kick off this week's show, as we see an old-but-new #1 option re-emerge once more, an AHL dominator get another crack at a top top six, and the impacts of a coaching change in Long Island. In this week's infirmary, we consider the backup options for a goalie who'd just been finding his rhythm, a goalie who hasn't had a rhythm, a pair of blue-liners who can be trusted to step into high production roles, the Red Wings' top scorer, and whether or not extended absences in Florida are encouraging or deflating for the fantasy prospects on the rest of the roster. In this week's outfirmary: a couple new Rangers who are still establishing their point pace expectations, a dynamic d-man whose gamelog betrays expectations, and a Sabre with whom you'll only ever be satisfied if you maintain low expectations. As usual, streaks abound, including everything being upside-down in St Louis, a former team-leading scorer being demoted to coach-swears-it's-not-actually the third line, a couple of Wild going Wild, an attempt to pass the torch of top production on Calgary's blue line, a top six tourist and a slumping goal-getter in Boston, a top six mainstay in Ottawa who might be starting to play like one again, a long-time top six Leaf making the case that he truly velongs there, and a few goalies that Elan claims Brian has been wrong about. Players mentioned on this episode include Ondrej Pavelec, Connor Hellebuyck, Jake Guentzel, Mathieu Perreault, Andrew Copp, Justin Schultz, Thomas Greiss, Anders Lee, Ryan Strome, Jonathan Bernier, Jhonas Enroth, Rickard Rakell, Jakob Silfverberg, Logan Shaw, Ryan Kesler, Semyon Varlamov, Calvin Pickard, Spencer Martin, Tyson Barrie, Francois Beuachemin, Erik Johnson, John Carlson, Philip Grubauer, Matt Niskanen, Andre Burakovsky, Alex Barkov, Jonathan Huberdeau, Vincent Trocheck, Reilly Smith, Jussi Jokinen, Jaromir Jagr, Jonathan Marchessault, Thomas Vanek, Anthony Mantha, Mike Zibanejad, Rick Nash, Pavel Buchnevich, PK Subban, Viktor Arvidsson, Tyler Ennis, Jaden Schwartz, Alex Steen, Paul Stastny, Vladimir Tarasenko, Jake Allen, Carter Hutton, Pheonix Copley, Nino Niederreiter, Zach Parise, Jason Pominville, Dougie Hamilton, Mark Giordano, TJ Brodie, Johnny Gaudreau, Sean Monahan, Frank Vatrano, David Pastrnak, David Backes, Tyler Bozak, Jordan Eberle, Bobby Ryan, Mike Condon, Ryan Miller, Cam Ward, and more. * * *   Download this episode, subscribe, and review us on iTunes!   If you enjoy the show, please support future episodes by becoming a patron of Keeping Karlsson.    Keeping Karlsson patrons can join our patron-only Facebook group and take part in (and receive audio from) a monthly live, face-to-face and interactive Keeping Karlsson recording!   You can also support us by telling a friend, subscribing to and reviewing Keeping Karlsson on iTunes, and following us on Twitter (@keepingkarlsson).

    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 honour 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 centreman who saw a change of scenery halfway through last year, another centreman 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. * * * Download this episode, subscribe, and review us on iTunes!

    Do you like Mark Borowiecki? Do you like loud yeses? If yes, then you'll love the opening to this edition of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast-- and you'll hopefully find some value in the fantasy hockey news, analysis and advice that follows, too!   Elan and Brian kick off the show with a visit to the infirmary, where they consider whether there's already a perfectly capable replacement for Kris Letang in Pittsburgh, whether there's anyone even left to play for the Habs, how the heck Cory Conacher found his way back into the Lightning lineup (and use this as a springboard to consider whether Victor Hedman is a top ten keeper defenseman), who the heck this Seth Griffith guy is that appeared in the midst of Marchessault's returns and departures to the lineup, and whether there's any meaning in Pastrnak's injury for Patrice Bergeron's fortunes rest of year.   Then they head over to the outfirmary, where they question Avs' management's handling of their should-be-peaking captain, wonder what Chicago's lines will possibly look like going forward, and chatter about whether anyone playing with the Flames' two best forwards is worth owning.   In hot streaks, they bicker (again!) over the future of a Duck on fire, a recently snoozing Senator, another blueline producer in Toronto, a Tavares linemate in Brooklyn, a sizeable chunk of the top nine in Minnesota, a Barracuda temporarily(?) evolved into a Shark, the obvious number one goalie in New York, and a guy who is awful but throws a billion hits, so he's got that going for him.   And just a couple cold streaks this week, featuring this week's victim of the St Louis Blues shuffle (but is there more to it than that?), a Star whose lost his grip on the coattails he's been riding, and a curiously underperforming super Star whose once long coattails have suddenly shrunk.   The show closes off with a few guys Brian tosses in at the end, including a dream sequence still continuing in Carolina, a secretive resurgence in Washington, and the very early seeds of a crease controversy for a Pacific team that's been without one for ages.   Players featured on this episode include Justin Schultz, Patric Hornqvist, Patrice Bergeron, Frank Vatrano, Kris Letang, Jeff Petry, Seth Griffith, Jonathan Marchessault, Alex Barkov, Jaromir Jagr, Jussi Jokinen, Cory Conacher, Victor Hedman, Tyler Johnson, Gabriel Landeskog, Jarome Iginla, Jonathan Toews, Artem Anisimov, Marian Hossa, Kris Versteeg, Sean Monahan, Troy Brouwer, Johnny Gaudreau, TJ Brodie, Mark Giordano, Chad Johnson, Brian Elliott, Rickard Rakell, Sami Vatanen, Shea Theodore, Corey Perry, Bobby Ryan, Jake Gardiner, James van Riemsdyk,  Nazem Kadri, Anders Lee, Josh Bailey, Eric Staal, Nino Niderreiter, Mikko Koivu, Timo Meier, Henrik Lundqvist, Antti Raana, Mark Borowiecki, Alex Steen, Patrick Eaves, Jamie Benn, Derek Ryan, Evgeny Kuznetsov, Antti Niemi, Pekka Rinne, Juuse Saros and more.   This episode was sponsored in part by SeatGeek.
