Fantasy Hockey Waiver Wire Outlook for Week 5

The waiver wire is a place where owners overreact and let good players go when they see little production over a small period of time. As the NHL season enters its fifth full week, star players are shining bright, off-the-radar players are now blips on the radar, and disappointments (see: Flyers, Philadelphia) are working their way down to zero percent ownership.

Sharks rely on rookie D Matt Irwin

When the San Jose Sharks moved defenseman Brent Burns to forward in March it provided an immediate spark to what had been a lackluster season to that point. Burns' physical presence up front allowed the Sharks to move Joe Pavelski to the third line and gave a scoring-challenged team much more depth to help lead the Sharks into the second-round of the playoffs. Burns' move...

Pre-game notes, Ducks @ Sharks 1/29/13

The reports about Jason Demers and Brent Burns should be considered positive developments.  The reports I mean are things like: Jason Demers practiced with the team and took line rushes with Matt Irwin this morning while Nick Petrecki and Brent Burns skated together.
