I'm not a Canadiens fan, per se, so I don't see as many of their games as some of you here on these boards do. However, from watching Ward, he reminds me a whole lot of a guy you used to have and now kills you every time he plays you - John LeClair. LeClair is far from a great skater and in general looks incredibly awkward anytime he has the puck on his stick and is trying to stickhandle. However, LeClair is a perfect example of a guy who was (in his prime) much more than the sum of his parts. Will Ward ever score 50 goals in the NHL? I highly doubt it. However, the possibility that he will turn into a solid, regular player in the NHL who averages 10-15 goals a year but might have that 25 goal season once or twice, is not that much of a reach.
