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!

Patrick Wiercioch recap:

Like Cowen, Wiercioch was also given a nice new contract in the offseason; like Cowen, Wiercioch was also expected to be a second pairing defenseman. Well, the Wiercioch/Cowen pairing didn't work out. Both blueliners were crushed early on. While Cowen stayed in the line-up regularly, Wiercioch spent a lot of time in the press box (29 games).

Like so many Senators, his play was rough early in the season. However, from about November on, Wiercioch played well when he was in the lineup. He was a positive possession player and solid point producer and deserved to be in the lineup more.

Highest grade: B+

Lowest grade: D
