RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
MacArthur tumbled back to reality a bit last season -- we should have all known that 62-point effort in 2010-11 was a bit of an outlier. Still, he's agile and creative with the puck, and he's a great fit with Mikhail Grabovski and Nikolai Kulemin. So, if he sticks on that line, we think he could top 50 points. But that's a big IF given the addition of James van Riemsdyk. JVR will likely become a second-line winger if he fails at center ice and he could take MacArthur's spot. Use extreme caution -- there's real risk of a third-line job in MacArthur's future.
MacArthur exploded last season on a line with Mikhail Grabovski and Nikolai Kulemin, and ended up second on the team scoring list with 62 points, including a team-high 41 helpers. Can he do it again? We think we've already seen his ceiling but he'll likely come pretty close to a repeat this year (say 55 points?). Those of you in leagues that count hits as a category will also get sneaky value from him -- he led all blue and white forwards last season with 115. That's good value in deeper leagues with positional requirements.
Speed? Check. Shot? Got it. Fit? Not so much, at least so far in his young NHL career. But that may change in Toronto where he may just be the ideal wing man for the skittish but fast Mikhail Grabovski. On any other team, he's a third liner at best. In Toronto, he could be on the second. His role in Leafland will be dictated in part by his own ability and in part by Colby Armstrong. Watch him in camp.
Last season, MacArthur became a permanent staple on the Sabres' roster. As a rookie he registered 17 goals and 14 assists in 71 games and is looking to improve on those numbers in 2009-10. With the Sabres looking to build within their organization, MacArthur could be seeing considerably more playing time this upcoming season, which would obviously build his stats.
MacArthur has shown point-per-game potential in the AHL but he has not been able to translate that scoring touch to the NHL level. He will compete for an NHL roster spot during training camp. Most likely, MacArthur will ride the AHL/NHL/healthy scratch shuttle this season.
MacArthur led AHL Rochester with 63 points (21G, 42A) in 51 games in 2006-07. He scored seven points (3G, 4A) in 19 games for the Sabres. He seems to lack the grit and speed to stick at the NHL level in the near-term. Unless MacArthur has an excellent training camp, he should be in for another year at AHL Rochester.
MacArthur should be a great producer for Buffalo's minor league affiliate in 2006-07, but he's still a year or two away from the NHL. MacArthur did shine in his first season in Rochester last year, finishing second on the team with 53 points off 21 goals and 32 assists. MacArthur won't be as huge a scorer once he reaches the NHL, but his game has good variability and he can do a lot of little things. He's also known for his intensity and tireless work ethic.
MacArthur's stock has been on the rise lately and the Sabres finally locked him up just hours before the July deadline. MacArthur won't be a huge scorer once he reaches the NHL (a few years from now), but his game has good variability and he can do a lot of little things. He's also known for his intensity and tireless work ethic. MacArthur had 30 goals and 44 assists in only 58 games last season with Medicine Hat of the Western Hockey League.
