RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for John Negrin.
Negrin finally made his NHL debut last season as the Flames needed him on an emergency basis for 3 games. He certainly has some offensive skills but the Flames would prefer to get him some seasoning in the AHL. He will start the year there with the Abbotsford Heat and shouldn't see much time with Calgary unless they are riddled with injuries on the blue line.
Negrin tore up the WHL last season, garnering 42 assists in 71 games, good for third among defensemen. He saw some time in the big leagues in April, but did not see the ice. He will likely spend one more season in the WHL honing his skills, but could make some noise in 2009.
