Yes, he slow, but he plays the exact same role as Hornqvist. He goes to the front of the net and messes with the goalie. Hes a true battler and competitor, and I really love what he brings to the team.
I like Ward. I like him as a third line winger. I like his ability to tween up in a pinch. I don't like putting Smithson, the least offensively gifted player on the team outside of Belak, with our best skater and arguably best playmaker, and then adding in one of the slowest players as the other complimentary winger. In other words, you are essentially dismissing any offensive output on this line as purely a bonus. This line is for defense and defense alone.
