Final Grade, Hishon the Magician

63

This season was a roaring success for Hishon, and his stats have nothing to do with it.

Final Grade, Jiggy

37

We didn't need Giguere to be stellar this season as Varlamov had that role down pat, but we did need him to hold his own. He did pretty much that.

Final Grade, MacK

106

Extraordinary. That's the first word that comes to mind when thinking about MacK.

Final Grade, Care Bear

16

We didn't see much of Carey, but his first dip into the show wasn't bad.

Final Grade, Pauly Walnuts

118

Stastny continued to do what he's always done: quietly be a bad ass. This season, though, more people noticed and realized how much the Avs really need him.

Final Grade, Tall-butt

117

This guy never quits. On the forecheck, on the penalty kill, on the ice.

Final Grade, Cleeshers

100

Nothing flashy, Cliche came in and did his job.

Final Grade, Hunny Bunny

13

Still has the feet, still needs the hockey IQ.

Final Grade, Downs

101

Downie's appeal as a player may have led to his ultimate surrendering of his Avs' sweater.

Doc Emrik and the Spelling Bee

8

Now this is the kind of spelling bee I can dig.

Final Grade, Sarsy

23

Sarich was supposed to add veteran stability. He did what he could, but unfortunately, injuries and age caught up to him.

Avs add some Avlets

73

The Avalanche has signed Troy Bourke, Dennis Everberg, Samuel Henley, Borna Rendulic, and Roman Will to three-year, entry-level contracts.

Final Grade, Pappy

42

Another inconsistent player, Parenteau would show flashes of top-line play only to follow it up with a disappearing act.

Final Grade, VDG

11

VDG is one of those guys you love to have on your affiliate team as his transition for call-up duty is seamless.

Final Grade, Ginner

51

Versatile, albeit inconsistent, McGinn put in a season worthy of a new contract with the Avs. Now if only the Avs can keep a healthy top six so that Fatty can man the third line like he's built to.

Final Grade, Dutchy

41

We all knew he'd be good. This season, he proved he is rising to elite status.

Final Grade, Yonner

55

Despite clearly being on the downside of his career, Hejda was a calming influence on EJ and allowed him to take risks offensively.

Daily Cupcakes: Roy's the Man

258

With the retirement of Teemu Selanne, the Anaheim Ducks re-evaluate where the franchise is headed. Anaheim caved under the pressure and succumbed to the rival Los Angeles Kings 6-2 in Game 7 of...

Final Grade, Johnny Malkin

75

For as frustrating as he was at times, Johnny was a solid commodity all season.

Daily Cupcakes: Are the Blackhawks a dynasty?

304

The St. Louis Blues are getting the biggest bang for their bucks. Hockey doesn't have the reputation other sports do for analytics-based, Moneyball-type tactics to succeed with a lower payroll....

Final Grade, EJ

43

Criticism for not living up to that number one overall draft pick followed Johnson every season...until now.

Final Grade, Natey

120

Some nights, you'd say, "NATE!" Some nights, you'd say, "Naaaate?!?!"

Final Grade, T-Bear

84

Barrie destroyed most people's predictions of his ceiling.

Final Grade, Stolls

16

Karl Stollery got his cup of coffee in the NHL this season with the Avalanche.

Final Grade, Nicky

71

For a guy who was supposed to be a depth signing, Holden sure turned some heads.

Final Grade, Varly

49

Semyon Varlamov went from frustratingly average in the locked out 2013 season to one of the three best in the league this season.

Roy makes the cut, water is wet

27

It's not a slam dunk, but Roy has a good shot at taking home the Jack Adams

Do or do not. There is no try.

857

It shouldn't be a surprise to anyone that this series went to seven games.
