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!

Chris Phillips recap:

After a fairly successful shortened campaign last season, in which he provided an unexpected offensive contribution, Phillips struggled in 2013-2014. His minutes were reduced from 2012-2013 and still he couldn't keep up. He was given the role of mentoring Cody Ceci when the young defenseman was called up in December, but at times Ceci carried Phillips. Ultimately, the pair was routinely Ottawa's worst in the second half of the season.

Many were calling for Phillips to be traded at the deadline. Instead, Bryan Murray re-signed the 36-year-old blueliner for two more seasons. Phillips missed 12 games this season and while some were due to injury and rest, I suspect he was a healthy scratch in a few of them.

Highest grade: C-

Lowest grade: D-
