Ward had a great playoff run with Nashville. He's been a 30-35pt player the rest of his career. What do those guys bring to the table to justify getting twice as much money as Chimera?
You also have to factor in the offenses that they played on. You have more of a point for Brouwer because he was on Chicago. A lot of people from Chicago have told me that he's actually overperforming for the Caps because most people thought he was just good because he was surrounded by talent. Ward though played on a decent Nashville offense and put up those kinda points. The caps are also no longer the offensive powerhouse so putting up (if he keeps pace) 40-50 points a regular season IS 3.6 mil salary player.
