RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Haley signed a two-year contract with the Rangers this offseason and faces tough odds to break camp with the Blueshirts as they begin the season. He is largely employed for his pugilistic skills, so while he may not be on many fantasy owners' radars, he is worth a look in leagues that count penalty minutes if he starts the season in the NHL.
Haley is sort of miscast as an enforcer as he is not the biggest of fellows, but is certainly not afraid to drop the gloves with anyone. What could make him valuable in fantasy leagues, especially late in drafts is that not only will he rack up the PIMs, but he will also add a little goal scoring as he was leading Bridgeport of the AHL in goals at the time of his call-up last season.
With 196 penalty minutes in 65 games for Bridgeport of the AHL last season, you can just guess what his value is to the Isles. That being said the Islanders are not short of this type of player and although he got a two game cameo appearance for the Isles late last season, Haley is ticketed to begin the 2010-11 season with Bridgeport once again.
