The NHL regular season is 80% done and the fantasy regular season is even further along, meaning there's no better time to check out the 55th weekly edition of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast!
The run of injuries to star players sadly continues, and Elan and Brian are here to tell you how to best offset the losses incurred to your fantasy lineup. The guys explain what the absences of blue-liners in Calgary, Winnipeg and Dallas mean for your roster going forward, and touch on the thud-like exclamation point on a sophomore slumper's season.
As the post-season draws nearer, your fantasy focus should be shifting ever more towards the short-term. With that in mind, we offer a few suggestions for some high-producing, low %owned players that could lend you a hand over their next handful of games.
Also, now that we've had some games played since this week's NHL trade deadline, we run down the first notable performances from players who have changed addresses. This show also takes a look at developing goaltending situations in Calgary and Anaheim.
And finally, we share some of our own strategic fantasy tips for getting the most out of your lineup. One point can make or break a season's worth of work, so we'll tell you how to cleverly manage roster moves, free agent pickups, and player schedules in your post-season matchups.
