By this impeccable logic, Jordin Tootoo will solve the Preds' scoring woes if only he was moved to the first line.

You need to be capable of playing at that level first. Legwand is. Ward, at present, isn't. He could possibly be a good tertiary scoring forward, but expecting any major increases in offense from him is a bit silly.

(And since when was he "counted on to score" here? Last I checked the guys being counted on were folks like Hornqvist, Erat, Wilson, Dumont, Sullivan, Kostitsyn when he arrived...)

Thanks, Howson, for cleaning up MacLean's toxic waste. Welcome, Kekalainen; let's get good things built!
