Yes, I know that the first round of the playoffs just ended and we're six months away from next season starting. We'll talk about the second round matchups on a podcast that will drop on Tuesday. I don't believe that people will get much out of me posting notes about the playoffs so what better time to drop my first sleeper post for next year? Bo Horvat, also known as Dr. Bo in these parts, has been talked about for months as a fantasy sleeper for next season by yours truly. What can we expect from Horvat next season and why is he a sleeper?
Reid joins me once again to hit on a few different topics. We start out talking about the big news in Buffalo since we're both in that area. Every bit of this situation is strange so we try to sort it out as best we can. After that, I set a timer at 4 minutes and talk about our biggest takeaways in all eight playoff series. We talk about what to look at going forward, potential fantasy impact in the future, etc. From there, we wrap things up previewing Friday's and Saturday's games with The Three Point Challenge. Be sure to make your picks for both nights in the comments section below. All of that and more in the latest edition of the Razzball Hockey Podcast brought to you by Seatgeek and Draft!
Hey guys! I'm going to recap all of the action for the first eight days of the playoffs. I'm not going to hit on every thing that's happening in each series but this is more of the big picture for the current season and then some smaller things that could have a fantasy impact going forward. Let's get right to it!
The playoffs are in full gear and we have a ton of goalies playing incredible hockey. Reid and I start by running down most of the playoff series with Nashville's 3-0 lead and Jake Allen's heroics leading the conversation. From there, we review our best bets for over-unders and what teams we differed on from the preseason. What we can learn from what we picked wrong is the biggest takeaway here. We also discuss the appeal of signing restricted free agents to offer sheets, what teams could develop a bunch of fantasy assets next season and Tuesday's games with The Three Point Challenge.

After spending Part One highlighting the mistakes I made, it's time to give myself some credit! Today, I'm going to look at the players who I was highest on among experts on Fantasy Pros that outperformed their ranking and then the players I was lowest on that failed to meet expectations. Like Part One, I will break down each of the players discussing why my ranking was successful and what we can learn from it going forward. Let's get to it!
This is going to be a two part series looking back at the recently-concluded NHL regular season. To start, I'm going to look at the biggest mistakes in my rankings. Who did I rank too high compared to consensus? Who did I rank too low? More importantly, what was my thought process and where did it go wrong? Hopefully this review will prevent similar mistakes in the future. Let's get right to it!
There's nothing better than playoff hockey! If yesterday is a sign of things to come, we're in for an amazing two months. Reid joins me as always and we start off by doing a news update. The Stars hire a new coach who is their old coach and Vegas appoints their first coach in franchise history. We talk about the Sabres press conference yesterday along with Vladimir Sobotka returning to St. Louis from the KHL, a move that has already paid dividends. From there, we talk about each of yesterday's games focusing on one or two major takeaways from each. Awards get our focus after that as we pick our finalists and winners for each of the major awards before making up some awards from a fantasy hockey perspective. We wrap things up with Three Point Challenge picks for both tonight and Friday. Make sure to make your picks below!

Sadly, the fantasy hockey season has come to an end. I'll have an RCL summary post up later this week along with a preview of The Stanley Cup Playoffs with Reid on Tuesday's podcast. For now, I'd like to invite everyone to join the Razzball Bracket Challenge again through the link here and to present my super early top 50 for next season. I'm not going to go into much detail at this point because so many things can change between now and six months from now when the 2017-18 regular season actually begins. This will go longer than our mock draft podcast but if you want more details about my thought process, I'd be sure to check that out. I'll be separating these guys into tiers with tier explanations but that will be the extent of the analysis. Obviously you're welcome to ask me in the comments section about anything you like / disagree with. Let's get to it!
