RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Leo Komarov.
Komarov has a shot at a job on the Leafs' bottom two lines this season. He's 25 and coming off a World Championship victory with Finland in 2011 and a KHL championship this past spring. He's 5-11 and 198 pounds, and he knows how to be a pro. He has real leadership abilities and is willing to do whatever it takes -- hit, fore-check, throw grit or score -- on every shift. His NHL value will come as a lunch bucket type; his fantasy value will mirror that.
Komarov profiles as a checking-line player, much like Jarkko Ruutu -- skilled but dynamic and obnoxious, and really hard to play against. He spent the past three seasons with Moscow Dynamo of the KHL where he played 46 games last season, scoring 11 goals and 13 assists with 58 penalty minutes. He was second on the team in penalty minutes and third in points.
