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!

Matt Kassian recap:

Grading fighters is always tough because inevitably the question becomes more about the role of fighters and their deployment. In any case, Matt Kassian dressed in 33 games and fought nine times, second only to Chris Neil for the Senators. Yet he only took four minor penalties. He averaged the least amount of ice time per game of any Senator (4:26 TOI/G) but that was still four minutes more than many would prefer. Strangely enough, the Senators had a great record when Kassian dressed. Perhaps the mostly telling assessment of his performance was Bryan Murray's comment last week: "Matt Kassian's not in our plans and I don't think we're in his plans."

Highest grade: C

Lowest grade: F
