Eh, not sure who other than BradD wants Ward out. I only want him out if we really need the salary space for someone else, other than that he's great. Well, not great, but only guy who remembers how to cycle and drive the net. Him and Ribeiro could do some damage since Ribeiro has a cycling style himself that results in a ton of scrambles with the puck being left in front of the net.
Green leaving is more of a philosophical approach to the roster (knowing basically what he is at this point) than a gut reaction to his play here and there. He should probably stay until he has the trade value of a good PMD again and people aren't hung up on his former injuries.
One of Neuvirth or Holtby I feel like should be moved to address other holes with a legitimate vet goalie (Nabokov? Howard? Backstrom? Lolongo?) brought in. Maybe not during the season but in the offseason. Platoons generally don't go very far, especially platoons of young goalies. One inevitably gets wasted.
