RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2013-14

Subscribe now to see our 2013-14 outlook.

2012-13

Ovechkin has consistently been one of the top names in fantasy drafts the last several years. There is doubt on whether he should be this year. The talent is certainly there, but opposing teams are getting smarter as to how to defend Ovechkin. Oviís goal numbers have been down the last two years, hanging around the upper 30ís the last two years from the low 50ís in years prior. He has also dropped 20 points from his totals in each of the last two years, notching 109 three years ago, 85 in 2010-2011, and 65 last year. Now, his 38 goals in 2011-2012 were good for fifth in the league, and he is still just 27, but question remains on whether he is an easy top-five choice this year; regardless, he shouldn't fall too far come draft day.

2011-12

Ovechkin is one of the top talents in the NHL, but gets a lot of heat for not getting his team anywhere when it matters. He needs to provide more of a leadership role for Washington to be relevant come playoff time. He is a bull on skates who will fire on net from anywhere, at any time. When draft day rolls around it is usually Ovie or Sidney Crosby as the top pick. With a slight down year last season, some may be reluctant to pull the trigger but that is where you will reap the benefits. Expect around 100 points, 400 shots, 30 power-play points, and a healthy plus/minus. When he's at his peak, he can carry the load to fantasy championships.

2010-11

Simply put, Ovechkin is the face of the NHL, but you may have already known that from his dazzling highlight reels and habitual lamp lighting. What separates him from other greats like Sidney Crosby is his ability to fire over 400 shots in a season, and still boast a healthy 12.5 shot percentage. Ovechkin is also surrounded by an unselfish supporting cast, helping him routinely deliver 50-goal seasons. As an added bonus, Ovechkin has shown an increase in penalty minutes in three successive seasons. Draft him as your No. 1 star in all fantasy formats.

2009-10

The reigning back-to-back Hart Trophy and Lester B. Pearson award winner is coming off a 56 goal season, adding 54 assists to finish two points (110) behind last yearís total. Is there anything this kid canít do? He has a shot that cameras barely can follow, skates like a madman on a mission, and hits like a bruising defender. Getting through the first round of the playoffs only will make him hungrier this year after the teamís second round exit last season. There is no doubt that Ovechkin will continue to dominate, and could easily be noted as the best player in the NHL. He will continue to be their top threat on the power play and his ice time should continue to be around 23 to 25 minutes. His line mates will only increase his potential after center Nicklas Backstrom put up another great year in his young career. During the postseason, he tallied 11 goals and 10 assists in the two seven game seriesí. The star is a bull on skates, with the drive to be only the best and he very well may be. Washingtonís front office is watching their $124 million investment payoff on a daily basis.

2008-09

The reigning Hart Trophy and Lester B. Pearson award winner, is coming off a 65 goal season, the first of any NHL player to score over 60 goals since Mario Lemieux did so in 1996. He also earned the Art Ross Trophy by leading the league with 112 points. We can argue he is the most dominant player in the NHL, and is an amazing talent. It will be tough for him to repeat the stats he put up in 2007-08, but he has the skill and players around him to do so. He will continue to be the top gun on the power play and his ice time should continue to be around 23 to 25 minutes. He finished with a plus 28 rating, which was a 47 point turn- around from the previous year. The Capitals star has the speed, size, skating ability, and a shot that is absolutely unbelievable. Add to that his vision, and you get 47 assists last season. He is arguably the top winger in the game and his ceiling for improvement is never ending. Expect more of what he did last year in this coming season, as he hopes to lead his team further than round one of the playoffs.

2007-08

Ovechkin was a bit of a disappointment in his sophomore season, scoring six few goals and picking up eight fewer assists while finishing with a rating 21 points lower than he did in his rookie campaign. 46 goals and 46 assists, however, can hardly be termed a disappointment, and there are many reasons to expect Ovechkin to improve on those numbers this season. Instead of Dainius Zubrus and Chris Clark, Ovechkin is expected to skate next the more offensively skilled Michael Nylander and Viktor Kozlov, the presence of whom should help reduce some of the focus from opposing defenses on the talented winger. In addition, the threat of a dangerous second line could further spread opposing defenses thin, allowing Ovechkin to free himself of the opponent’s top checking unit at times. Finally, he’s a year older, and rumor has it that this has been his most productive offseason from a conditioning standpoint. While others might shy away in favor of some other superstars due to Ovechkin’s poor rating last season, he should easily clear the 100-point mark this season and could challenge Sidney Crosby for the scoring title.

2006-07

No longer a draft-day secret, Ovechkin is now a lock for a top five pick in almost any format. Among his numerous accomplishments last season, Alexander the Great finished third in the NHL in goals (52), 20th in assists (54), third in points (106), sixth in power play goals (21), second in power play points (52), 19th in shorthanded goals (3), first in shots on goal (425), fifth in shootout goals (6) and, surprisingly enough, 14th in hits (172), including seventh among forwards. And he did it all without a linemate tallying more than 57 points and without being able to order an alcoholic beverage in the U.S. Like a fine wine, however, Ovechkin will continue to get better with age, and if he can stay healthy -- he was a frequent target of opposing goons over the second half of last season, though at 6-foot-2 and 212 pounds he can hold his own -- Ovechkin will continue to top the statistical leaderboards in 2006-07.

2005-06

It's hard to label a 19-year-old who has never touched the ice in North America as the odds-on favorite to lead the team in points, but Ovechkin -- the No. 1 overall pick in 2004 -- will undergo a trial by fire and is almost certain to see time on the Caps' top line and power play unit. He and 2005's top pick, Sidney Crosby of the Penguins, should battle it out all season for Rookie of the Year honors, but the lack of proven high-end talent around Ovechkin means he might struggle a bit more at times this season. Ovechkin -- who scored 27 points in only 37 games with Moscow Dynamo of the Russian Super League in 2004-05 -- is one of the most highly touted rookies of the past decade, and he shouldn't disappoint point-wise in 2005-06.

2004-05
