Push Howse to play with Horak and get his offensive game back. Wahl has played well in the ECHL why isn't he in Abbotsford, Doghouse maybe?
Ward's a really, really, poor choice for a developmental coach. Great if winning is the only thing that matters, but awful at getting players ready for the NHL. Although, to be fair, it's very likely that the parent organization put a lot of pressure on Ward to start winning games given how unhappy the city of Abbortsford is, what with the team losing a lot money because they can't attract enough fans.
