    I'm A Snoozer, Baby (So Why Don't You Drop Me)

    I'm A Snoozer, Baby (So Why Don't You Drop Me)

    On this episode of the Keeping Karlsson Fantasy Hockey Podcast, Elan and Brian look at an unprecedented number of previously productive players who've lost their offensive spark, deployment or both, and wonder aloud: are these guys snoozers? (A snoozer is a Keeping Karlsson term for slumping players who may be undeservedly taking up roster space without their manager fully realizing it).
    After handing out snoozer labels, we move on to the rest of the latest hot streaks, line changes and injury news from around the NHL.

My little fantasy secret 🤫

I was just informed that I’ve listened to 75 hours of KK this year, and my only regret is not making it to 100. I usually only last a few episodes with most podcasts out of boredom but not only has this podcast been my secret weapon to multiple season wins agains the boys but it’s also somehow entertaining. Keep it up.

#1 Fantasy Hockey Podcast

I’m ashamed to admit that this review is long overdue. As a long time listener, I am embarrassed by my past lack of effort to write up a review of my favorite podcast of all time. With that being said, please exclude me from the raffle for the prize from reviewing, I’ll sit this one out in the penalty box.

The dedication and commitment Brian and Elan have contributed towards the fantasy hockey world is nothing short of extraordinary. This show has greatly improved my knowledge of the game in all aspects. I went from being completely clueless, to a stats monster that the other teams in my friend’s league despise, but respect. Thanks to this podcast, I have been able to win my league once and have yet to not make playoffs. From bronze status to diamond in yahoo’s level ranking. This wouldn’t have been possible without all the weekly shows, tweets, etc. that Elan and Brian dish out on a consistent basis.

Keep up the great work guys. I am grateful and appreciative of your efforts, and continue to look forward to all future content.
