Opinions on Ward?

Just wondering what our collective thoughts on Ward are. I posted a post-game thread the other night complementing him on his hustle and strength on the 4th line, but others came back saying he did nothing. Personally I think he can score, he works hard, and shows constant improvement. His skating used to be a problem, but he seems to have some good speed now. I've seen quite a few glimpses of good stick work, he can lay some nice checks, is decent defensively...and so on. Sure he's not putting up good numbers, but few power forwards are at this age. If he slowly keeps improving, possibly finding himself on a scoring line permantly sometime in the next two years, does he have a chance to become on of these typical late blooming power forwards (ala John Leclair)?
