RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

The Flames thought they had a star in the making when Giordano scored 43 points in the 2010-11 season -- a bruising defenseman that could put up big numbers as well. Yet much like Dion Phaneuf before him, Giordano couldn't live up to those lofty expectations and combined for only 42 points over the last two campaigns. He is still a good all-round defenseman, but isn't likely to put up another 40-point season again unless he and Dennis Wideman somehow catch lightning in a bottle. Expect around 25 to 30 points and 75 to 80 PIMs from him in 2013-14.

2012-13

A series of injuries and inconsistent play made Giordano a big fantasy disappointment in 2011-12, as he missed 21 games with injury and his production dropped from 43 points to 27. He did seem to put it together in the final two months, however, with 12 points in his final 19 games. Hopefully for future fantasy owners, thatís what Giordano will draw off of for 2012-13. If he can stay healthy, he has the potential to be a top-tier fantasy defenseman, but it remains to be seen whether he can get to that point.

2011-12

Other than captain Jarome Iginla, Giordano may be the most complete player on the Flames. The 6-foot defender netted a career-high 43 points last season, 25 of which were scored on the power play. Look for Giordano to improve on his breakout season with an All-Star caliber campaign in 2011-12.

2010-11

Giordano was a pleasant surprise for a Flames team full of disappointments, potting 11 goals and tallying 19 assists, including 5-and-10 on the power play respectively. Unfortunately, he was like a number of his teammates in that he faltered down the stretch, going without a goal in his final 17 games of the season, and failing to score with the man advantage in his final 23 games. Jay Bouwmeester will be the Flames' primary blueliner on the power play, but look for Giordano to get significant ice time in that capacity as well, perhaps third in line behind Ian White.

2009-10

Giordano returned to Calgary last season after spending a year with Moskow Dynamo. He looked like he was finally putting everything together before a shoulder injury suddenly ended his season in February. He recorded 19 points (2 G, 17 A) in 58 games. Expect Giordano to challenge the 30-point plateau if he can stay healthy all year. If he ends up skating with either Dion Phaneuf or Jay Bouwmeester his value would receive a boost.

2008-09

Giordano returns to Calgary after spending a year in the Russian Super League. He showed some potential as a rookie with the Flames in 2006-07, scoring seven goals and eight assists in 48 games and showing some flash in the playoffs as well. Giordano will likely make the team and take a spot on the third defenseman line. Keep an eye on him.

2006-07

Giordano did a decent job filling in on the Calgary blue line when the injury bug hit in 2005-06, but he's going to find trouble making the team in 2006-07 with Brad Ference and Richie Regehr already competing for the seventh defenseman spot. Even if he makes the team, he will not score enough to warrant a fantasy pick.
