Want to know what's on Brian's shelf? Well, you're in luck: the 126th episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast tells you that, and more! With the "more" being cutting edge and deeply informative fantasy analysis on the most important hockey news of the past week.
Big things are expected from this week's outjuries, as it's October in December for poolies who have Jack Eichel or any of his linemates. How much can he do for them? Same question for high-end forwards returning to boost top sixes in St Louis, Winnipeg, New Jersey, Pittsburgh and Calgary.
In a brand new segment this week, entitled Appendectomies and other Injuries, Elan and Brian discuss whether Scott Darling is the de facto number one on the league's top team while Corey Crawford is out, or whether that title can't possibly be bestowed on Chicago if Crawford's not in their lineup (not to mention Toews). We also mention a couple fallen Stars, and an unheralded Avalanche blueliner who will be dearly missed by his owners for the duration of his injury.
Hot streaks on this edition include a feast-or-famine Oiler who's currently feasting, a Bolt who quietly stepped up in Stamkos's absence, a Senator whose buy low window may now be closed, a shooting and hitting Blue Jacket with a couple recent points to his name, a Bruins D left for dead, a Coyote leading his team in scoring, and a Red Wings rookie riding shotgun with a streaking vet. Cold streaks include a Dallas d-man, so disempowered players in Montreal, a demoted Coyote, a heretofore PP1 contributor in Columbus, and so many of the Florida Panthers.
Players featured on this episode include Jack Eichel, Alex Steen, Taylor Hall, Conor Sheary, Marc-Andre Fleury, Matt Murray, Johnny Gaudreau, Sean Monahan, Chad Johnson, Aleksander Barkov, Corey Crawford, Scott Darling, Roberto Luongo, Jonathan Toews, Marian Hossa, Patrick Sharp, Julius Honka, John Klingberg, Jason Spezza, Erik Johnson, Tyson Barrie, Francois Beauchemin, Leon Draisaitl, Oscar Klefbom, Andrej Sekera, Valtteri Filppula, Jonathan Drouin, Mike Hoffman, Mark Stone, Kyle Turris, Erik Karlsson, Anthony Mantha, Henrik Zetterberg, Max Pacioretty, Brendan Gallagher, Anthony DeAngelo, Brandon Saad, Boone Jenner, Cam Fowler, Sami Vatanen, Sam Gagner, Radim Vrbata, Sam Reinhart, Evander Kane, Rasmus Ristolainen, Nik Ehlers, Blake Wheeler, Vladimir Tarasenko, Kevin Shattenkirk, Colton Parayko, Travis Zajac, Adam Henrique, and more.
