FDH Insider/Goon Squad November 5

By Rick Morris

Tonight's FDH Wednesday night on will be full of more of the variety you have come to expect over time.

On THE FANTASYDRAFTHELP.COM INSIDER (7-9 PM EDT), we review our Week 10 Top 5 NFL waiver wire recommendations before we break down each game on the slate from a fantasy perspective. Towards the bottom of Hour Two, we will be joined by STN analyst Ben Chew for a peek at this week's injury picture. In the final half hour, we will preview next week's college hoops team draft and look at some of the teams towards the top of the AP preseason Top 25 poll.

Then, on THE GOON SQUAD (9-10 PM EDT), we examine some of the most prominent early storylines of the NHL season. What's wrong with the Dallas Stars? Could Sean Avery have anything to do with their woes? And could Mark Parrish serve as a cure for their woes? Also, it's the best of times (potentially) and the worst of times for two New York-area franchises. Martin Brodeur is out for a good chunk of the regular season due to his bicep injury. The Devils were already fading a bit in recent years, relative to their dominance in the period between the two lockouts. Does this franchise, which has leaned more and more on their megastar over the years, still have a prayer of making the playoffs? And in quite a contrast, the first-place New York Rangers -- who have surged with a balance of good young players and outstanding veterans in recent years -- appear ready to make a play for the "Messier sequel." Mats Sundin is rumored by the Bleacher Report to be on his way to Gotham for a chance to be the team's missing link to a Stanley Cup. How credible is the report, what would his impact be and how devastating would it be to Leafs fans to lose their hero to another Original Six franchise potentially on the brink of a title? And as always, we'll take a peek at the standings and at notable individual performances.

All this and much, much more is coming your way tonight, only on the FDH Wednesday night on the SportsTalkNetwork.
