Your Say: David Legwand
We've given out our grades. Now it's your turn!
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!
Legwand was signed as an insurance second-line centre in case Zibanejad couldn't live up to the role. He finished the season being a healthy scratch for Zack Smith in the playoffs. At the start of the season, he played with offensive-minded wingers and got significant time on the powerplay. By the end of the season, he was stuck on the fourth line with Chiasson and whoever was in Cameron's doghouse. He finished with only 27 points in 80 games, the worst points-per-game of his career by far in any season in which he played more than one game. Still, he finished with 1:41 shorthanded per game, fourth among Senators forwards. He wasn't signed to play mop-up duty, but he did the job well.
