RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Parenteau had a breakout season for the Avs last year, scoring a team high 18 goals and tying Matt Duchene for the team lead in points with 43. He was primarily a set-up man before coming to Colorado, but he showed a sniping side beside Duchene -- those 18 goals (48 games) matched his total in 82 games in 2011-12. He will play alongside Duchene again this season, and that could result in a 30-goal, 70-point campaign. But keeper leaguers beware -- how many guys peak after 30? Yes, Parenteau turned 30 during this past season. Keep your finger on the trade trigger, particularly if someone wants to overpay.
Parenteau, who signed a four-year, $16 million deal with the Avalanche in June, is coming off two very good campaigns with the Islanders in which he averaged 60 points per season with just three games missed. He could turn out to be the game-breaking right-winger the Avs have been lacking the last couple of seasons. Parenteau is a good complementary player and should slot into a spot beside either Matt Duchene or Ryan O'Reilly, and that should continue to deliver him -- and you -- fantasy points.
Parenteau had the best season of his career last year with the Isles, as he potted 20 goals and added 33 assists. Nine of those goals came on the power play, which was a pleasant surprise. More good news for Parenteau is that he meshed very well with John Tavares and should remain on the top line at least to start this season.
Parenteau is the kind of player the Islanders are loaded with. Third or fourth line player who may score 10 goals if your lucky. Just not much upside here.
Parenteau seems to be destined for a life of hockey's equivelant of a 'Quadruple-A' player. He's been dominant in the AHL, but hasn't gotten many shots in the NHL and doesn't figure to get an extended look this season. At 26, he's hardly a prospect.
Parenteau should be nowhere near a fantasy team right now. Parenteau had 34 goals and 81 points in 75 games for Hartford of the AHL last season.
Traded to Chicago in Dec. of 2006. Parenteau is a capable, scoring winger who should begin the season in the AHL.
