But we have more talent now to roll three good lines compared to when we had no forwards two years ago and he was such a nice find.
Oh well, it's not like he and Leggy stink together or anything at least on defense, maybe the problem was always the third spot, and with SK they may score. It just seems to me Ward is a bit slow of foot (and despite banging in some goals as someone else said he's not exactly a finisher either) to be the best choice on Leggy's line. Hope I'm wrong because Trotz seems to love that pairing, as if it's set in stone.
This is where I was hoping Anderson would fill a void as a fast skater he could fit in well with Legwand and SK. Ward is probably our second worst skater at the forward position.
