Don't overate Ward. I like his physical presence a lot but he doesn't have the skills to play the first line. His skating is too poor, he doesn't have the creativity needed to play such a role of first line winger.

He plays a “corridor” style of game. This is mostly 3rd and 4th line stuff. Great player for 3rd and 4th line, that's where he belongs.
