Grade: C

Regular season: 9 goals, 14 assists, 23 points, plus-16

Postseason: 0 goals, 3 assists, 3 points, minus-1

Stalberg teased the Blackhawks with his potential last season with 22 goals. He fell short of that production this season. He, Andrew Shaw and Bryan Bickell gave the team a solid third line, but Stalberg didn't do anything extraordinary individually. His nine regular-season goals were tied for fifth on the team. He ended up in coach Joel Quenneville's doghouse in the playoffs and was a healthy scratch in four games. When he did play, he didn't get that much ice time and finished with three assists in 19 playoff games. It's improbable he'll back with the team next season. -- What grade would you give him?
