Grading the New Pittsburgh Penguins’ 2020-21 Seasons

These grades will be based on my expectations to the player prior to playing in Pittsburgh and the on-ice results. Jeff Carter – A+ Fans’ perceptions of Carter went from expecting a good third-line centre to admitting he was one of the best players on the team within two months. He was so impressive, and if he keeps this play into next season, he will be the best bottom-six centre the team has had since Nick Bonino during the back-to-back playoff runs.
