How is Teddy doing?

Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports

December marked another month in the right direction (mostly) for the Buffalo Sabres. Under Ted Nolan, there were still some awful performances and injuries continued to decimate an already weak lineup, but things are not looking as grim as they did in October. The Sabres Tank Brigade lost some momentum, and then rose up again in force as the holidays came in.

So, personal biases and beefs aside, what grade would you give Teddy on the basis of his (and the team's) performances in the month of December?
