RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2013-14

Subscribe now to see our 2013-14 outlook.

2012-13

Tarnasky signed with the Sabres in July after spending last season in the KHL. He's a veteran of 245 NHL games, but was brought in to add depth to the Sabres' AHL affiliate in Rochester. He is a candidate for a mid-season recall, but is unlikely to contribute much offensively, with 13 goals over his NHL career and last played with the Panthers during the 2009-2010 season.

2009-10

Tarnasky will likely only see occasional game action as he wraps up a long-term deal originally signed with the cross-state Lightning. He won't contribute to the fantasy world.

2008-09

Tarnasky (6-2, 233 lbs) is a great team guy, willing to go to the wall for anything. The trouble is his hands -- they're pretty much chunks of lead. He could find himself on the Bolts power line with other big men Evgeni Artyukhin (6-5, 254) and Chris Gratton (6-4, 231). If so, that's a whole lot of muscle and energy, and that spells excitement on the ice. Too bad their lead hands won't get them points to match their PIMs.

2006-07

Tarnasky is hockey's version of a dirt monkey. You know, that scrappy kid on the baseball diamond who always played beyond his talent and ended up with a dirty uniform by the end of the first inning. Tarnasky is the working man's hockey player but that doesn't translate in the fantasy arena.
