Grade: C-

Regular season: 7 goals, 7 assists, 14 points, minus-7

Postseason: 3 goals, 3 assists, 6 points, minus-2

Bolland's 2013 season will always be remembered for the game-winning, Stanley Cup-clinching goal he scored in Game 6 of the finals against the Boston Bruins. That's probably good for him because the rest of his season wasn't too memorable. Injuries slowed him down in the regular season, and he struggled to fit the bill as the team's second-line center. He had a 46.1 faceoff winning percentage in the regular season. He missed the opening-round of the playoffs, and his play varied throughout the final three rounds. He was second on the team in penalty minutes in the playoffs, but he did score goals in the final two Stanley Cup finals games. -- What grade would you give him?
