Your Say: Bobby Ryan

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!

Bobby Ryan recap:

Ryan’s first season in Ottawa was a difficult one. He got off to a blazing start, showing instant chemistry with Kyle Turris and Clarke MacArthur on Ottawa’s new first line and continued his strong play throughout the fall. 2014 wasn’t as kind to Ryan. His play dropped considerably and he scored just five goals in his final 29 games. After a fall into the ends boards in Dallas in mid-March, it was revealed that Ryan had struggled with a sports hernia injury since late November. With the Senators playoff chances all but over, Ryan had surgery and sat out the rest of the season recovering. His totals (70GP, 23G, 25A, 48P) aren’t bad, but it’s safe to say more was expected of Ryan. Ultimately, it’s too difficult to assess Ryan’s season because of the injury he suffered. I think it’s safe to say, a healthy Ryan returns to his 30+ goal scoring ways next season.
