We finished our player grades for the 2013 season on Friday, but that was just nine jerks talking about what they think--and it was a lot of information to talk about. So, we figured why not give our readers a chance to cast their votes? There were 29 grades assigned, which means we've got a lot of player to get through. So, let's get started!

Daniel Alfredssson Recap

Alfredsson-grade_medium

This was the season we expected Daniel Alfredsson to tax himself less. Take a few games off here and there, play easier minutes, and enjoy what might be his final season. Well, here's the thing about captains: when the situation calls for it, they rise to the occasion. Alfredsson ended up taking only a single game off en route to finishing third in team scoring, playing tough minutes while most of his teammates were wearing ice packs instead of pants. If this was his final season, Daniel Alfredsson should be damn proud of everything he accomplished. That goal to send the Senators to overtime against Pittsburgh? That's Pageau-level legendary. He'd probably have been better off not dismissing his team's chances in the second round, but I guess he gets points for honesty?

Highest grade: A
Lowest grade: B+
