Grade: A

Regular season: 17-1-0, 1.94 goals-against average, .922 save percentage

Postseason: Did not play

Emery was the league's best backup goaltender. He had a 17-1-0 record with a 1.94 goals-against average and a .922 save percentage. As good as Corey Crawford was this season, the Blackhawks wouldn't have had such a stellar regular season without Emery. He and Crawford combined to win the Jennings Trophy. Emery is a free agent and likely won't be returning to the team. -- What grade would you give him?
