RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015-16

Subscribe now to see our 2015-16 outlook.

2014-15

In his second full season with the ‘Canes, Nash posted a career-high 24 points (10G, 14A) in 73 games. Nash’s role over the past two seasons has been that of checking-line center, anchoring the team’s third line between Patrick Dwyer and Nathan Gerbe. Nash is a great example of a player who is worth more to his NHL team than to fantasy owners. He’s a decent two-way center who is fairly responsible defensively, based on his plus-minus rating of 0 and minus-4, respectively, over the past two seasons. Problem is, Nash doesn’t figure prominently in any particular stat category, including secondary ones like PIM, hits or blocked shots. He doesn’t even see very much PK duty, averaging just 0:45 per game in SH TOI. Ultimately, this renders his fantasy value fairly limited outside of ultra-deep formats.

2013-14

Nash is a low-ceiling 2-way center. His strengths are winning face-offs and killing penalties. Both admirable traits but, unfortunately they will prove to be far more valuable to Carolina than to your fantasy time. The ice time might be there in 2013-14 but the offensive production will only disappoint you in the long run. You should pass on Nash and look for centers with more upside.

2010-11

Known as a consistent playmaker, Nash is just one of the many Hurricanes' prospects vying for an NHL job straight out of training camp. While this is purely speculative, he may have a leg up over other prospects after foregoing what would have been his final year at Cornell University to sign a three-year, entry-level deal with the 'Canes in July of 2010. If Riley does make the team, he could either be a dark horse fantasy pick in deep leagues, or someone worth hanging onto in keeper formats.

2009-10

Nash was the Oilers first round pick in 2007. The offensive skills are there, but Nash will need to develop physically before he can even think about playing in the NHL. He is still at least a year away.

2008-09

Nash is progressing very well while playing College hockey at Cornell. His size is the only impediment to him becoming a complete NHL player. He will return to Cornell for this season, but could represent Canada at the World Juniors Championship in Ottawa.

2007-08

Nash will play at Cornell in 2007-08, his freshman campaign. He's got a good skill set, but needs to mature physically.

2006-07

Many consider Nash a safe pick -- extremely hard working with solid skills. But a small handful of folks believe he has the raw skills that could some day turn him into an absolute monster on the wing. A kind of Todd Bertuzzi before he went over to the dark side. Nash isn't finished growing and could add another three or four inches to his 6' frame. And he already has pretty good speed and hands, so anything is possible. He's a long way off but don't forget about him -- admire from afar for at least three years.
