Tampa Bay Lightning player grades: We need your help!

Offseason coverage starts now.

With the Tampa Bay Lightning’s 2018-2019 season over much earlier than we would have liked, the time to start on our offseason coverage has already arrived. As always here at Raw Charge, we’ll be evaluating all the players who played regular minutes in Tampa this season.

Just like last year, we’re opening the process to all the readers to join in with the writers in grading the players. We’re asking you to fill out a quick survey using the typical A-F grading scale for thirteen forwards, eight defenders, and two goalies. The more people who respond the better so we encourage everyone to get involved.

This year, we’re going to expand our coverage further. We’ll be writing individual articles for every player instead of covering them in groups. Each article will include our writer grades, your reader grades, and a combined community grade.

Last season, we had 555 responses and we hope to see even more this year. Community involvement is what makes a site like this fun so if you didn’t participate last year or if you’re new to the site, we definitely want your input.

The link to the survey is here.

If you have any questions, drop them in the comments here and we’ll be checking in regularly to answer them. The only requirements for the form are that you use letter grades (A+, A, A-, B+, B, B- etc.) Any other formatting won’t be included in the final results. We’re not setting any specific criteria for how to come up with your grades. That’s up to you.

We’ll keep this open through Saturday. Happy grading!
