RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2013-14

Strait is another move that adds fuel to the fire about the Islanders not really knowing what they are doing. He had hardly played in the previous two seasons when the Islanders inexplicably gifted him a three-year contract. He then promptly got injured and sat out most of 2012-13. You can blame his poor performance on his injuries, but I don't see him as anything more than a bottom-pair defenseman.

2012-13

Strait is a defenseman who probaby won't help fantasy teams win leagues. He's spent the majority of his last three seasons in the AHL with Wilkes-Barre, where he's compiled 40 points in 194 games. The 24-year-old blueliner saw action in nine games with Pittsburgh over that spin, tallying a lone assist. He's another one of the Pens' older defensive prospects who isn't receiving much fanfare but will probably see more action in the NHL than previously. Still, his skillset lies inside his own zone and he won't be counted on for scoring, wherever he goes.

2011-12

Strait, 23, should see time in Pittsburgh in 2011-12. A defensive-oriented rearguard, Strait registered only two goals and 10 points in 75 AHL games last season. He also played in parts of three games for the Penguins, but did not record any shots or points. He's in the minority of blue line prospects within the Pittsburgh organization that actually can be considered a stay-at-home defenseman.
