Your Say: Eric Gryba

Gregory Shamus

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!

Eric Gryba recap:

What a difference a year makes.

For much of last season, Gryba was a disaster in his own end. As Ryan put it in last year's review: "He was awful to start. In over his head. It seemed like everything he touched ended up somehow going into his own net. He was a D-level player at best." But his play improved by the end of the season: "But then a curious thing happened: Gryba improved. Slowly at first, and then by the end it was significant. And his grade went up. Next year should be interesting. Is there room for him to be a regular?"

Gryba didn't dress regularly in 2013-2014. He played in just 57 games and was a healthy scratch in the other 25 games this season. Used sparingly, Gryba tied with Corvo for fifth most ice time per game among Ottawa defensemen, averaging 17:31 per game. However, he was one of Paul MacLean's preferred penalty killers, averaging 3:00 SH TOI/G. Ultimately, Gryba was one of Ottawa's most reliable defensemen this season.
