RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Fleury, selected by the Hurricanes with the seventh overall pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft, is a big, strong, fast and smart defender who will likely become a top-four rudder on the Carolina blue line. Currently, his greatest asset is his world-class skating ability, and thatís why you may have heard comparisons to the likes of Jay Bouwmeester. Heís that good. But unlike JayBo, Fleury isnít afraid to make hits and use his body, too. Itís actually hard to predict his fantasy upside because heís still developing his offensive game and his confidence. But itís safe to say heíll be at least become a second-pairing, second power play-unit minute-muncher for a decade or more. And if he capitalizes on his extraordinary hockey sense, he could be a No. 2 guy. Thereís long-term fantasy value in that.
