Episode of
Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast
On this new episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast, Elan and Brian are reunited with Hockey PDOcast's Dimitri Filipovic, and it feels so good!  Dimitri joins in on the fun we've been having of going over all our pre-season projections with a fine-tooth comb. Together, we revisit our Western Conference pre-season fantasy preview from alllll the way back in September 2018, marvelling at what turned out to be right and aghast at what turned out to be wrong. We attempt to explain ourselves and learn a few lessons along the way, as well as testing out the hotness of some takes for 2019-20. Stay tuned for our Eastern Conference Preview Review, coming next week via the Hockey PDOCast. Like what you heard? There'll be more of it in our annual audio fantasy hockey guide and projections!

No. 231 - Couture Club
Episode of
Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast
Hello, hello, hello! It's another spring series edition of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast! In this show's first half, Elan and Brian are inspired by the happenings of the Stanley Cup Playoffs' second round to discuss the rich irony of the Hurricanes goaltending, the pumpkin-ing of the Islanders goaltending, and the futures of a couple forwards on each team who had standout seasons for reasons both good and bad. They also try to nip any speculation on the St. Louis Blues' PP1 quarterback in the bud, give appropriate praise to one established and one up-and-coming Star, speculate on the potential of a repeat situation in the Bruins' crease next year, and wonder whether a Predators stud is actually that. In the second half, we kick off our Almanac review and self-evaluation, where we look back at our projections to celebrate the hits and understand and learn from the misses. To begin, we go easy on ourselves, looking at the player point projections on which we were furthest apart from other projectors, but ended up being right about. Don't worry... we'll hold ourselves fully accountable for the ones we got wrong in the offseason episodes to come. This episode was prepared with great help from @fantasyref, who sent us all their data on how we did on our projections, as well as how our projections stacked up to all the others. Check out their site and this year's rankings! And finally.. we announced on this episode that the Keeping Karlsson Audio Almanac will be returning for the 2019-20 season! You can pre-order yours at keepingkarlsson.com/almanac. (If you didn't listen to the 2018-19 Almanac and want to check it out, it's now available on a pay-what-you-want basis.) Players discussed on this episode include Petr Mrazek, Curtis McElhinney, Robin Lehner, Jaccob Slavin, Anders Lee, Brock Nelson, Logan Couture, Tomas Hertl, Timo Meier, Vince Dunn, Alex Pietrangelo, Tyler Seguin, Roope Hintz, Tuukka Rask, Jaroslav Halak, Filip Forsberg, Andreas Athanasiou, Jakub Vrana, Tom Wilson, Jon Carlson, Nathan MacKinnon, Evgeni Dadonov, Jack Eichel and more.  * * * Like what you hear?
