Every year, some NHL forwards make that esteemed leap from being pretty good point-getters to being all-out point-producing wizards. There's also the flipside: once-reliable top end scorers who find themselves moving in the other direction, to the point that they're suddenly not worth the high pick or keeper protection status that they've enjoyed for years on end.
In this week's episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast, Elan and Brian pick out a handful of highly-regarded forwards that are crossing the line-- in either direction-- that separates the great fantasy producers from the elite. We go deep to give you all the reasons why some players should now be considered amongst the cream of the fantasy crop, and why there are others that you might want to let fall a couple more draft rounds than you normally would.
Do you have a suggestion for a player that's crossing the line that we didn't cover on this week's show? Tweet us @keepingkarlsson to let us know who we missed!
Players discussed on this episode include: Vladimir Tarasenko, Eric Staal, Thomas Vanek, Jakub Voracek, Daniel Sedin, Henrik Sedin, Ondrej Palat, Corey Perry, Nicklas Backstrom, Filip Forsberg and more.
Also, have you heard about our new fantasy league that we're designing from the bottom up to be the most fun, most competitive fantasy hockey league ever? We fill in some of the remaining blanks about how we're setting up the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey League, and invite you to become a patron and compete against us and a whole league full of other fantasy hockey fanatics.
