RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Darroll Powe.
With one year and $1 million remaining on his two-year contract with the Rangers, Powe was placed on waivers. There were no takers. The 5-year NHL veteran is expected to open the year with Connecticut (AHL). He has little or none fantasy value.
The Wild traded for Powe (from Philadelphia) this past offseason, and quickly signed him to a three-year deal. Powe is limited in terms of what he can do with the puck, but he should be able to improve Minnesota's penalty-killing unit that has been mediocre the past couple of seasons. As a role player, Powe will not be coveted in most fantasy leagues in 2011-12.
Powe's greatest strength keeps him mostly fantasy irrelevant - his penalty-kill ability. He's not good for many points, but does serve his purpose for the Flyers, though that likely won't support many fantasy rosters. Look for him to surpass double-digit points, but not go too far past that.
