RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

During the lockout Myers played with Klagenfurter AC (Austria) but missed nearly a month with an ankle injury. Once he returned to the States, Myers stumbled his way through a disastrous NHL campaign, posting a career-low eight points in 39 games and finding himself a healthy scratch on a couple of occasions. Heís been trending downward since his 48-point, rookie-of-the-year campaign in 2009-10, and is no longer seen as a franchise cornerstone. However, thereís still potential here, and last year was likely as bad as itís going to get for the 6-foot-8 defender. Playing a full season should allow Myers to have a rebound year, playing a more solid all-around game and posting 25-30 points.

2012-13

Myers ended an injury-plagued, 23-point season with a broken foot that kept him sidelined for the final few games, but should be fully recovered in time for training camp. He hasn't been able to replicate the success of his 11-goal, 48-point rookie season in '09-10, and his power-play production may continue to take a hit due to the presence of Christian Ehrhoff. However, Myers certainly has a full toolbox and should creep closer to the 40-point barrier with a clean bill of health in '12-13. He'll turn 23 in February and those in keeper leagues should bump him up a few spots. Don't be scared off by his last two seasons, but don't forget about his potential either.

2011-12

Myers' offensive numbers dipped in 2010-11, thanks largely to a brutally slow start to the season. The young defenseman turned things around right before Christmas and began to resemble the Calder Trophy winning d-man from his rookie campaign in 2009-10. With Christian Ehrhoff and Robyn Regehr now in the fold on the blue line for the Sabres, Myers should at least be expected to return to his rookie form, and it's a good bet that he will take a giant leap forward in 2011-12.

2010-11

All Myers did in his rookie season was lead all rookie defensemen in points (48), goals (11), and assists (37) on his way to the Calder Trophy as the league's best rookie. With the departures of Toni Lydman and Henrik Tallinder from Buffalo's blue line, Myers will get even more time on the ice, especially with the man advantage. Add all that to his plus-13 and it makes him a top-10 fantasy defenseman.

2009-10

This 6-8 first round pick from the 2008 Entry Draft had an impressive season in his first year in junior play with 42 points in 58 games. Along with his scoring ability, Myers brings a level of physicality that the Sabres could use in their defensive line. But at only 19-years-old, it is yet to be seen whether he can provide the amount of maturity and experience needed for the NHL. Myers will be tested early in the season to see if he is ready for the move or if he needs another season of development in the juniors.

2008-09

Myers is a very tall defenseman with excellent reach and skating ability. He has all of the physical tools to succeed, but he is still relatively new to the position, having picked it up three years ago. He will spend 2008-09 in juniors to acquire some of the finer points of the game. Myers could challenge for an NHL roster spot next year or, more likely, in 2010-11.
