As a not at all biased goalie who wore a C in my high school league last year, I say screw convention and give Rinne at least an honorary A. Let Legwand wear it on the jersey if you want, but give Rinne the title IMO (assuming he wants it).

I also think Hornqvist "deserves" one, but the job of the Cs and As is to talk to the refs in a calm and collected manor to avoid getting more penalties, something that is not his strong suit.
