We've finished our player grades for the 2014-15 season, but that was just 9 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!
Despite early-career struggles, fans were (slightly) optimistic about Jared Cowen going into this season. His youth and his style of play made it easy for many people, including me, to give him the benefit of the doubt. Well, we were wrong.
Cowen struggled throughout the season. His limited mobility, lack of speed and poor decision making were evident from day one. He was a healthy scratch early in the season, and his frustration was evident in media interviews. After a late-season suspension, Cowen lost his spot on the team and would spend the rest of the season in the press box. Somehow, during that time, he sustained a sports hernia, requiring surgery. Needless to say, Cowen's struggles are far from over.
Highest grade: C-
Lowest grade: D-
