We've give 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!

Jason Spezza recap:

It was a difficult year for Spezza. He didn't find instant chemistry with Bobby Ryan and quickly lost the sniper to Turris and MacArthur in October. He struggled offensively in the first half of the season, often playing on the second line with wingers who couldn't help him out offensively. He was injured to start the year and looked hampered at times. He had prolonged goalless droughts in November and December. However, Spezza looked much better in 2014. He was skating better and contributed more offensively. He had 10 multi-point games in 2014, four of which came after the arrival of Ales Hemsky. His late season surge brought him closer to the point-per-game pace we're used to (75GP, 23G, 43A, 66P).

Highest grade: B+

Lowest grade: B-
