RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017-18

Subscribe now to see our 2017-18 outlook.

2016-17

Playing Reinhart on Jack Eichelís right wing last year was such a success that the Sabres hinted they might keep their two wunderkinds together, even though Reinhart was drafted as a center. Not the best skater or the most dazzling, Reinhart continues to impress and stymie everyone with his smarts, whether itís a well-placed bank pass, well-timed line change or simply having a knack for being Johnny-on-the-spot. Despite being hailed as a two-way center, Reinhart scored 23 goals and 42 points this past season as a rookie, just one shy of Eichelís totals, and posted the teamís best shooting percentage at 13.9. Heís a blue-chip prospect playing on an emerging team and pencilled in as a top-six forward, so don't be afraid to take the plunge come draft day.

2015-16

Reinhart is a stud, but heís been overshadowed in just about every situation heís been in, and that is still the case today. Eichelmania has now swept Buffalo, but Reinhart has the ability to become a point-per-game, two-way center. His hockey IQ is off the charts, and heís a leader on the ice. And perhaps most impressively, Reinhart thinks the game several steps ahead of his opponents and is always in the right place at the right time in both zones. Heíll push for a job in training camp and has the tools to get one. But the top-six spots are already allocated for other players, and the Sabres will need to decide if they want Reinhart to toil in a checking role in the NHL or play top-line minutes in the AHL. The latter is the best for his career, so his single-year value is limited. But the future is bright for this future alternate captain.

2014-15

Reinhart is a smart, two-way center who was born to lead. He has X-ray vision, impeccable timing and lethal offensive skills. And his hockey smarts are off the charts Ė then again, you might expect that given his pro bloodlines. Heís not the biggest guy and he occasionally gets knocked for lackadaisical play. But heís actually just waiting for the right opening and he just steps right through. TV pundits like to toss around comparisons to Jonathan Toews, but thereís only one of those. But heís a future top-line center who will make those around him better while delivering a point-per-game pace. But thatís a few seasons away. Heís a great dynasty pick, but youíll need to determine where he fits on the Sabres before tabbing him in single-year formats.
