If we're going to do any real damage this season, we need Cam Ward to be a top-10 goalie. Cam Ward won't be a top-10 goalie sitting on the bench.
It's a "long view" vs. "short view" thing. Plus, Cam was 4-0 against Boston last year and stopped 139 of 144 shots. So I think Cam starts Monday. If he continues to fight the puck, then we have this conversation about Friday against Ottawa.
This is too rational and does not belong in this thread.
