RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Jarret Stoll.
Stoll's transition to a checking-line center figures to continue for as long as he's in LA and it's a role he fills pretty well. Unfortunately, that role doesn't do much for your fantasy squad. His goal scoring days are behind him as he's failed to score 10 goals in each of the last three seasons and that trend figures to continue again this year.
Stoll continued to see most of his time in a third-line role for the Kings last year and his offensive numbers continued their downward trend. Don't expect that to change this season as he reprises his checking role again. He's simply not going to get much time in an offensive role, what with Anze Kopitar and Mike Richards around, and will need to make the most out of his limited power play chances to get much of his offense.
Stoll was asked to transition to a third-line role this past season and saw his offensive game evaporate as a result, totaling a career-low 21 points and just six goals. That's not likely to change with Anze Kopitar and Mike Richards occupying the top two lines, so don't expect much of an improvement out of Stoll.
Stoll posted his highest goal total (20) since 2005-06 despite seeing his power-play production (four goals, eight assists) drop to a career low. The addition of Mike Richards and Simon Gagne could cut into his power-play time again this year so he'll need to make the most of his chances at even strength if he wants to eclipse the 20-goal mark again.
Stoll hasn't quite lived up to the expectations he had in Edmonton and despite only missing nine games last year, it seemed like he was always banged up. His 47 points (16 G, 31 A) were his highest since that breakout 2005-06 season as he benefited from regular time at the point on the team's top power play unit (4 power-play goals, 17 power-play assists). He'll return as the Kings' second-line center and should at least match last year's totals - so long as he keeps his role on the team's top power play unit.
Stoll's first season with the Kings saw him net 18 goals, his highest mark since 2005-2006. The Kings will need more from him if they're going to make a playoff push but he should see regular time on the team's top two lines.
Stoll will look to bounce back after back-to-back disappointing seasons that saw him wear out his welcome in Edmonton. He registered just 36 points in 81 games last season and needs to land a spot on one of the top two lines in order to bounce back. Watch his role closely in training camp to see if he clicks with Teddy Purcell and Alexander Frolov.
A concussion limited Stoll to 51 games last season and will drop him off the radar for many. Some will be scared to take a flyer on him, but he should be a solid draft choice - as long as you don't overvalue him. He'll again center the second line, and while his linemates don't exactly project to be gunners (likely Raffi Torres and Geoff Sanderson), there is enough talent there to give him some decent players flanking him. Expect something in the neighborhood of 50 points this season.
Hit the wall a bit in the second half last season, but still posted a breakout season with 68 points. Is quite capable of putting up another 60 points this year.
Has the ability to be a solid two-way player for the Oilers. He just needs to get stronger to handle checking duties, and tap into his scoring potential. Will have either third or fourth line duty this year.
