    Re: Final Grades: Regular season

    Kelly gives up the puck along the boards a lot and offense dies on his stick when he has an open look in the slot. Since Kelly's return from his broken leg, unintentional slash (cough!), he has been a lot better winning more battles in the offensive zone. 

    He will take all the defensive zone faceoffs. I would give Kelly a B for the season based on what  Julien wants of him.

    Grades are based on production compared to expectations

     

    Tuukka Rask - A-. He'll likely win the Vezina, I think most people in the hockey world would consider him the best goalie in the world. The reason he doesn't get an A is a couple moments of inconsistency. I think he can take his game to another level. 

    Chad Johnson - A+. what more could you want. 

    Zdeno Chara - A+. Added a big of a mean streak this year. Rejuvinated the PP, great leadership, great season. 

    Dennis Seidenberg - incomplete 

    Johnny Boychuk - A. Career highs in goals (although he's scored 5 twice before), assists, points, plus minus, shooting percentage, and hits. Phenomenal year for him. really picked it up.

    Dougie Hamilton - A-/B+. Great season from him. good on the powerplay, good for the transition game, good production, and a very respectable plus minus. Really happy with Dougie's progress. 

    Torey Krug - B. - 40 points, over .5 points per game for a rookie d man is great. Awesome on the PP and a +19 is great for a guy who put up half his points on the PP.

    Andrej Meszaros - D. I expected more. 

    Matt Bartkowski - B-. Inconsistent. but pretty good production from a rookie 7th d man. I expected more, but perhaps my expectations were unreasonably high. 

    Adam McQuaid - D. Might seem unfair, and maybe he should get an incomplete, but c'mon McQuaid get healthy. 

    Kevan Miller - A. Who expected this guy to play this well? you did? no, you're a liar. 

    Patrice Bergeron - A++. I said a couple weeks ago that he's not a hart finalist quality player. I take that back. Crosby should still win, but 30-32-62 for a guy that plays 17:59 per game, with a ton of short handed time, and a league leading plus minus is unreal. 7 PP goals to lead the team? That's more like it Bergy.

    Brad Marchand - C+/B-. I was hoping he would take the next step in terms of goal scoring, but he regressed a bit in terms of production this year. I'm hoping he becomes a 30-35 guy, not a 25-30 guy. 

    Reilly Smith - A-. It's unfortunate that he hit that cold streak, but I don't think anyone expected a 20 goal season out of him. Great fit with this team. 

    David Krejci - A. Pretty darn close to a career year for him, and a plus 39 doesn't hurt things. 

    Jarome Iginla - B. Iginla was Iginla, I hope he stays. 

    Milan Lucic - C+/B-. A good year, but I would like to see more than 24 goals out of him. Still love what he brings on the forecheck. 

    Carl Soderberg - A (at center) B (at wing). Thrilled with him. He really made that third line go. 

    Chris Kelly - C-. Was definitely hoping for more offensively, but he plays the system and certainly hasn't hurt that third line. 

    Loui Eriksson - Incomplete/C. He's definitely started to come around, but the injuries and a rough start wasn't what I was hoping for. 

    Gregory Campbell - C+. Just a pretty standard year for a good fourth line center. 

    Daniel Paille - C-. Didn't produce nearly as much as last year. 

    Shawn Thornton - F. If he can't win fights what good is he?

    Jordan Caron - F-------. He might be the most overpaid human being on the planet. Let's demote him to the federal league. I hear the danbury Whalers need a third line RW. 

    Matt Fraser - D. I expected way more from him. I was hoping he could take over the fourth line RW and we wouldn't have to see 22 in the playoffs. 



    This has to be the S hittiest final grade thread I ever seen. Nobody on this team deserves less than a B. They have just came off a 54 win season & finished 1st overall. Btw- Varlamov is going to give Rask a good run for the Vezina. Also, Quick is still considered the best in the world. If Rask can help bring in a cup? Then he'll be ranked with Quick.

    that has to be the S hittiest goalie ranking I've ever read. Who considers Quick the best in the world? The people that remember that one really good season he had? I don't think it's the people that have seen him play outside of 2012 and witnessed him be merely slightly above average.
