FDH Insider/Goon Squad November 19

By Rick Morris

On Wednesday’s FDH Wednesday night lineup on, we will take you for your usual twirl around the sports landscape.

On THE FANTASYDRAFTHELP.COM INSIDER (7-9 PM EST), we examine some strategy that appeared in this week’s USA Today Sports Weekly before we deliver our NFL Week 12 Top 5 waiver wire picks – before delving into our game-by-game analysis as the fantasy home stretch heats up for real. This will take us into our final half hour, when we review the NASCAR season by comparing some of the expected outcomes to what actually transpired.

On THE GOON SQUAD (9-10 PM EST), co-host Kyle O’Rourke has been all over the Tampa Bay Lightning this year, predicting that the top-heavy young squad would make tremendous improvements. So clearly he must have a take on one of the most shocking stories in years: the whacking of Barry Melrose only 16 games into the season! Also, Kyle as a Maple Leaf fan should have some thoughts on this: Brian Burke resigns from the Anaheim Ducks and is widely rumored to be headed to Toronto to take over their hockey operations. If a man of his resume takes over one of the legacy franchises in the league, it will be one of the top stories in the sport this decade, perhaps on a par with Scotty Bowman’s move to Detroit in the early 1990s. How would Burke handle what might be the hottest of all hot seats in the NHL right now? We’ll examine this in detail. And one more note that might be pretty sweet for Kyle: is Ottawa in its final meltdown mode, on the way to the lottery? Or can these potential moves save them?

Join us Wednesday night for three hours of rollicking sports fun, only on The Sports Talk Network.
