Mid Season Grades

Well, we're beyond the half way point, so we need to assess the current situation and give overall grades to the roster

I'm going to start out with management as some of our issues on the ice are a direct result of who was brought in

Grade -- B-, It has turned out that Sullivan/Moss didn't replace the offensive production of Whitney/Pyatt Donny didn't have the means to add any significant pieces and although I like Klinkhammer, it wasn't a great off-season for adds to the lineup.

Grade A Players: OEL (I think he's the only one)

Grade B Players: Boedker, Doan, Chipchura

Grade C Players: DeMo, Yandle, Vermette, Z, Gordon, Moss, Vrbata (injury), Hanzal (injury), Torres, Stone, Schlemko, Johnson, Klinkhammer, Lol

Grade D Players: Smith, Korpikoski, Klesla, Sullivan, Lombardi

This is why we're at in the standings because we've got way too many players playing below their expected level of performance. Our two biggest appointment's have been Smith and Sullivan.

We only have 3 forwards I'd consider to be top 6 material (Vrbata, Boedker and Doan) that is it and what we've found after our soft early schedule is that we're finding it hard to win games or even score.

At this moment we're not a playoff team, and unless Mike Smith can regain his form, we're not going to make the playoffs.
