Good write up!
I do have to object to Rinaldo beating out Simmonds, Timonen, Schenn, Couturier, and Giroux with his A+. I would have given Rinaldo a B...he began to escape his rep and is easily one of, if not the best, hitting forward in the league. That is worth something.
I would put Lauridsen at a B or C+ as well. While he entertained me, he had his "WHAT AM I DOING?" moments occasionally.
Shelley is an F. I think Coburn is a D.
I think I'd put Couturier at a B or B+...this team would have been a tremendous wreck defensively without him. I agree on the C for Schenn; I think I'd give Read an A- because he's such a utility guy, and if he wasn't putting up points he was still playing on whatever line necessary, at whatever spot, while also doing PP and PK. He had very few games where I thought he was bad, maybe like 2-3.
Goaltending, I go with the F for Boosh as a nonfactor. Mason I would give an "incomplete" because I'm not comfortable with his time spent playing when it didn't matter behind a group of energized guys playing their brains out to show they can maybe be NHL players. I'd give Bryz a D+. He was brutal, no other way around it. Just as Voracek's season ended up cancelling out his thoroughly putrid start, Bryzgalov's season ended up cancelling his excellent start. He started a lot, but it's not like he improved dramatically once he was rested. Leighton is an obvious F.
Down in the basement, I've got a Craftsman lathe. Show it to the children when they misbehave.
