Your Say: Craig Anderson

USA TODAY Sports

We've given out our grades. Now it's your turn!

We've finished our player grades for the 2014 season, but that was just 11 people talking about what they think--and it was a lot of information to talk about. Now it's time for our readers to cast their votes. And with that in mind, we present our Your Say series!

Craig Anderson recap:

Craig Anderson provided Vezina-calibre goaltending last season, leading the league in goals against and save percentage. It was a remarkable year but a drop-off was always expected. However, Andy's numbers plummeted, especially in the first half of the season. While his play improved considerably in 2014, he still finished with slightly below-average numbers.

It's not fair to blame the change solely on Anderson. Ottawa's defense was sieve-like for most of the season and Andy suffered some minor injuries throughout the campaign. However, Anderson was Ottawa's number one goalie this season, a fact frequently reinforced by Paul MacLean. His performance in the first half of the season was simply not good enough from a starter and contributed to Ottawa missing the playoffs.

Highest grade: B
