Final Grades 2014: Brad Malone, #42

New, comments

He didn't put anyone in the hospital or cost the Avs the playoffs, so I guess there's that.

Brad Malone got his time in the sun with the Avalanche this season. He was neither here nor there, though, as he didn't contribute much, but also didn't cost the team too much, either. Okay as an emergency call up; wouldn't want to see him as a regular addition to the team. He's a free agent, so it very well could be that we've seen the last of Malone in an Avs sweater. (ohpleaseohpleaseohplease)

c6hor8: Unhappy with him but he nly had a few games. He got better but still.

mfured20: Malone was ok.  I know that he was trying to tailor his game to be an energy, shut down guy for us, so he could have a chance to be in the lineup.  But he just wasn't overly good, even in that role.  I dunno.

Mike: Don't understand his role, not sure he does either. 32 games, 5 points. No PK time-literally ZERO. No PP time to speak of was pretty much filler.

Cheryl: fucking ginger devil

c6hor8: I thought he was below average.

mfured20: After playing 32 regular season games, to lose your spot to a rookie in his second game (yes, I know that it was really Carey who lost his spot, but the sentiment remains)... It does not fill me with hope.  He just wasn't very good this series.

Mike: 35 minutes in 6 games.  4 shots, zero points.  He and Carey served no purpose other than to rest the top two lines.

Cheryl: you suck, you son of a motherless goat.
