Welcome to the beginning of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast's 2015 Pre-Season Series! Elan and Brian are officially turning the page on the offseason, and focusing now on getting you prepped and ready for those imminent draft day decisions.
On this episode, we comb through the default draft rankings that dictate the drafting priorities of so many poolies, and then pick out the guys who are rated suspiciously high and unthinkably low. We break it down from top to bottom: from an overranked forward at 45th overall, to an NHL newbie ranked at 712th, and everywhere in between.
Also, have Elan and Brian found this year's version of the Stastny vs. Pavelski bet?
Players discussed on this episode include Kyle Okposo, Anders Lee, Artemi Panarin, Teuvo Teravainen, Nick Bjugstad, Alex Barkov, Torey Krug, Chris Kreider, Zdeno Chara, James van Riemsdyk, Ryan McDonagh, David Backes, Matt Duchene, Boone Jenner, Hampus Lindholm, Bryan Little, Ondrej Palat, Derek Stepan, Michael del Zotto, Erik Johnson, Ryan O'Reilly, Alex Tanguay, Mathieu Perreault, Shawn Matthias, Jake Muzzin, James Wisniewski, John Klingberg 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.
