RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Conacher looked like a future star in Tampa Bay before being dealt to the Senators in March in exchange for goalie Ben Bishop. The 23-year-old was leading the NHL in rookie scoring, but understandably faded after joining the struggling Senators offense. His future is still bright, but the additions of Clarke MacArthur and Bobby Ryan mean the Senators will probably use Conacher in the bottom six, at least to start the year. He still finished the 2013 regular season with 24 points in 35 games. Even though he probably won't put up those kind of numbers again, Conacher should be a good option in deeper leagues, since he will probably be undervalued, and has shown that he does possess a scoring touch.
Is Conacher the next Mighty Mite? Probably not -- like St. Louis, he's small, but his feet are 10 times heavier. However, he is smart, talented and absolutely fearless, and that combo earned him the AHL rookie of the year and MVP last year. He's a huge sleeper this season -- we think he wins a job on the Bolts' third line, and with Ryan Malone's propensity for injury, there's a solid shot for him to see time on the second line. Keep him in mind in your later rounds.
