Ward started hot, but the general malaise of the team has infected him just as surely as it has the rest of the team. Ward runs very much with the emotion of the moment, despite what some would have you believe. The same reason he gets up for big games is the same reason he falters in October behind teams that lack urgency like this one does.
Many think that the Hurricanes go as Cam Ward goes. I am more inclined to think that the Hurricanes go as Eric Staal goes because when the effort in front of Ward is balls out, he's money. When everybody is gliding, then Ward glides too. You can see it in the way he works his crease and the way he reacts after goals. Night and day right now from the start of the year.
Staal right now is putting in a laughable effort. I think he wants a vacation in February and he's about to get his wish.
