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!

Clarke MacArthur recap:

Clarke MacArthur was an afterthought when he was signed on July 5, sandwiched between Daniel Alfredsson’s departure and the Bobby Ryan trade. He wasn’t the most sought after free agent that day, but he may have provided the best value. Paired with Turris this season, MacArthur was one of Ottawa’s best forwards and set a career high in goals scored with 24. He was also a key penalty killer and member of the power play for Paul MacLean. The only blemish on his sterling season was his penalty record. At times MacArthur was visibly frustrated, taking 29 minor penalties (a dramatic increase over previous seasons) and he spent more time in the penalty box than ever in his career. Emerging as one of the club’s leaders, he needs to be more disciplined next season.

Highest grade: A+
