RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2013-14

Subscribe now to see our 2013-14 outlook.

2012-13

Gionta missed more than half of the 2011-12 season after he underwent surgery to repair a torn biceps. A return to full health is expected and he'll skate as the second line right wing alongside center Tomas Plekanec and a to-be-determined left winger. You can typically pencil in Gionta for a 20-20 campaign, but he's approaching his 34-year-old season and we always worry about injuries to smaller-stature guys like Gionta, especially ones that like to initiate contact the way Gionta does.

2011-12

The 48 goals Gionta pocketed in 2005-06 may be an outlier, but the Habs' captain has been an automatic 20-goal guy for seven straight seasons. He led Montreal for a second straight season with 29 goals in 2010-11, though it was largely considered a sub-par year for Gionta. There's a notion out there that Gionta was held down by the poor play of linemate Scott Gomez, and the two will likely remain on the same line this coming season. For a small player, he plays with some grit and isn't afraid to put his body in the high-traffic areas. With a full season of Max Pacioretty as a scoring threat on the left wing and an elevation in Gomez' play, Gionta could break the 30-goal mark.

2010-11

Gionta had a very impressive 28 goals but a very disappointing 46 points in only 61 games last season. After proving to be very durable the previous few seasons, Gionta missed 21 games with a broken bone in his foot. With Scott Gomez centering his line and feeding him the puck, look for Gionta to have great luck again scoring goals and if he remains healthy he could end up with 30-plus tallies.

2009-10

There are a lot of expectations for Gionta, who is coming off his most productive season since 2005-06. In New Jersey last season, he had 60 points with 20 goals and 40 assists. His 60 points would have been third among the Canadiens last season. The speedster is a main addition to the club who was brought in to bolster the scoring lost with the departures of Koivu, Kovalev and Tanguay. He has proven to be durable, having missed just five games in the past three seasons.

2008-09

Gionta's first season without Scott Gomez went as expected. His 48-goal campaign in 2005-06 appears to be an aberration. Last season, Gionta scattered 22 goals over all 82 games with just eight on the power play. He's still one of the team's top offensive options, but don't expect any more than 60 points this season.

2007-08

Gionta's first season without Scott Gomez went as expected. His 48-goal campaign in 2005-06 appears to be an aberation. Last season Gionta scattered 22 goals over all 82 games with just eight on the power play. He's still one of the team's top offensive options, but don't expect any more than 60 points at the most.

2005-06

The scrappy, but undersized winger, scored 20 goals while skating on the first line, but his potential is limited to whom he skates with. He could see some power play time, but 20 goals probably is his ceiling.
