RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015-16

Subscribe now to see our 2015-16 outlook.

2014-15

After spending the last four seasons with the offensively-challenged Coyotes, Vrbata signed a two-year deal in the summer to join forces with the Canucks. The 33-year-old sniper will get a chance to play with two of the more dynamic playmakers in the game in Henrik and Daniel Sedin, though the twins have both noticed diminished effectiveness the last couple of seasons. Vrbata is coming off a solid 2013-2014 campaign in which he netted 20 goals and 31 assists and was especially dominant on the power play, where his career-high 21 power-play points (10 goals) made Phoenix one of the better teams in the league with the man advantage. With his shot still proving lethal and the chance to play with some more talented linemates in Vancouver, Vrbata could see his point totals climb in his first season as a Canuck.

2013-14

Vrbata battled a nagging foot injury and streakiness in 34 games last season, posting 28 points but just 12 goals. And three of those goals came in a four-point outburst on the last game of the season. It's highly likely that he missed the offensive talents of the departed Ray Whitney, but will benefit this season with the arrival of Mike Ribeiro. It's not unreasonable to expect Vrbata to return to the 60-point mark in 2012-13 as long as he can stay healthy.

2012-13

Vrbata had a fantastic 2011-12 campaign with 62 points (35 goals), the highest point production of his career. Injuries hampered his performance in the postseason and with the departure of linemate Ray Whitney, there's some concern that Vrbata's offensive output may dip in 2012-13. That said, he has been good for at least 40 points annually since joining the Coyotes prior to 2009 and that should be his floor next season.

2011-12

Vrbata had a solid 2010-11 campaign and was rewarded by Phoenix with a three-year, $9 million payday in July. The winger tallied 48 points (19 G, 29 A) through 79 games. Perhaps most important to the Coyotes was Vrbata's 10 power-play scores, an area which the desert dogs struggled in for much of the season. Vrbata will continue to be called on to provide a scoring weapon for the Coyotes and a 20-goal, 30-assist season should be within reach.

2010-11

After returning to the Coyotes in 2009 via a trade, Vrbata became an integral part of the scoring committee and put up 43 points (24G 19A). During his first tenure with the Coyotes, he was tagged as a streaky player where he would go weeks without scoring a goal. For 2010-11, he has the potential to continue that scoring touch and put up points in the 40-50 range, provided that he can stay consistent.

2009-10

Vrbata returns to the scene of his most successful professional season after coming back to Phoenix in a trade with Tampa Bay. Vrbata didn't play much hockey between his three stops in Tampa and two Czech Republic club teams last season, but, if he can look at 2008-2009 as a lost year, and return to his 56 point (27 G, 29 A) form from his 2007-2008 campaign with the Coyotes, Phoenix will be much improved.

2008-09

In fantasy hockey, there are drivers and there are passengers. Drivers put up points no matter who they’re with; passengers get points because of the guy who’s driving. Vrbata is a passenger. But that doesn’t necessarily mean he won’t produce this year. Fantasy pundits seem to be split on him. Several say playing with the Bolts boosts his value; others see just a single goal in his last 22 games last year. He’ll skate with Steven Stamkos and Ryan Malone so the opportunity will be there. A 30-goal, 60-point season is possible. But he’s a risk.

2006-07

One of the best acquisitions for the Hawks in 2005-06 as they grabbed Vrbata from the Hurricanes. Accumulated 13 goals and 21 assists in 45 games for the Hawks and could be a sleeper pick this season although his numbers might not be as impressive with the Hawks additions in the offseason.

2005-06

Vrbata will likely continue to improve his scoring statistics, but probably not by enough to warrant a pick in your draft. Expect something on the order of 30 points and a significantly negative +/- rating.

2004-05
