Mid Season Grades

Here are my grades for each position player and goaltender. My grades are based on performance in opportunities and roles each player is given (i.e. poor powerplay or penalty killing will have a negative effect on grade). Each player who has played in a minimum of 12 games will get a grade based on their play even in limited action. I will evaluate on each grade sometime this weekend.

Defensemen
Zdeno Chara- A
Andrew Ference-B
Shane Hnidy- B-
Matt Hunwick- B
Matt Lashoff- D
Mark Stuart- C+
Aaron Ward- B-
Dennis Wideman- A-

Forwards
P.J. Axelsson- C
Patrice Bergeron- B-
Phil Kessel- A
Chuck Kobasew- C+
David Krejci- A
Milan Lucic- B
Petteri Nokelainen- D-
Michael Ryder- B+
Marc Savard- A+
Vladmir Sobotka- D
Marco Sturm- B
Shawn Thornton- C+
Blake Wheeler- B+
Stephane Yelle- C+

Goaltenders
Manny Fernandez- A
Tim Thomas - A

Wheeler a B+?

I'd say an A, based on the fact that he's a rookie and he can control the play with his size and touch...

he's not an Ovechkin or Crosby rookie, but he's been amazing considering he plays around 12 minutes a game. If it wasn't for Steve Mason he'd be my vote for mid-season Calder.

I'd also give Wheeler an A, but on that note wouldnt Lucic be flunking and get suspended for his multiple fights?...and if Petteri keeps it up we should consider some special ed. Oh shit! Were talkin hockey...

Opinions on the players may vary, but there is one thing for certain and which matters most. The Boston Bruins deserve an A+.

Been watching for 20+ years and I havent seen team play like this YET.

Savard is probably my favorite player, but I am definitely going to be getting a Lucic jersey. And i just might get one of those dirty 3rd jerseys...seems a fitting way to commemorate it.

LUCIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh, and if there are any big Joe T fans out there (Neb?), I am selling an authentic black Joe T signed jersey, a puck, a limited edition bobble head, and two 8x 10 glossies all signed by Joe for $400.

Thats 5 Joe T AUTOGRAPHS!!!! HOLY FUCK.

fernandez had the flu, that fifth goal was a beautie, I thought bitz looked good as well, big kid. have to admit this was one of their better efforts in a while. good to see. just a point. if ryder was on the habs this season he would be there top scorer goals and points. ha ha nice pick up.
