We’re going to do the player grades polls every week

Last season we tried to do a player grades poll after every Buffalo Sabres game, and it was pretty chaotic. That’s not to say we can’t go back to that again, but it seemed that not too many people were voting.

So to open this season, we’re going to do this on a weekly basis, where 3-4 games is a reasonable sample size. Let’s go with that for now, and see how it works, and we can tweak it some more as the season runs on.

Your feedback as we try this out is always appreciated. Let us know what other information you would like there beyond the basic stats by the player’s names. Should Dan Byslma also get a rating? How about grades for the PP and PK units?

Rate the player performances for these games -

Buffalo Sabres 1-4 Montreal Canadiens

Edmonton Oilers 2-6 Buffalo Sabres
