RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016-17

Subscribe now to see our 2016-17 outlook.

2015-16

Draisaitl spent 37 games with the Oilers last season, and itd be an understatement to say it was a struggle. He scored two goals and added seven assists, and was overmatched at every turn. But thankfully, the experience didnt ruin him. After he returned to the WHL when the calendar flipped to January, he promptly racked up 19 goals and 34 assists in 32 games and added 10 goals and 18 assists in just 19 postseason contests. Perhaps most importantly, Draisaitl worked hard to improve his skating, and that has put him in good stead to fight for a role with the Oilers in 2015-16. Hell need to move to the wing to do it, and honestly, the Oilers could use a guy with his size and strength along the wall. Should he fail in his quest to earn a roster spot, the organization could dispatch him to AHL Bakersfield and give him top-line minutes down there. His destination wont be settled until the end of training camp, so dont invest too much.

2014-15

Draisaitl is a complete wild card. Hes earned the nickname "The German Gretzky" for good reason -- his playmaking skills look other-worldly at times. But at other times, hes almost completely invisible -- in an Alex Kovalev-invisible kind of way. And you can read it all over him when hes off his game -- his body language slumps worse than a five-year-old whose had his chocolate cake taken away. Still, his vision and ability to think the game give us hope that good coaching can bring out some consistency in his game. And if that happens, Draisaitl will be a star at either center or left wing. He needs to build up his lower-body strength, but could crack the lineup in Edmonton given the right circumstances. Wed like to see him grow his game back in the Dub, though -- theres too much risk to his development if he cracks the NHL too soon. Could you live with Anze Kopitar Lite on your squad? Roll the dice in dynasty formats.
