However, regarding Ward, I think there's a reason he's on the fourth line.
I wasn't being critical, just having a difference of opinion. I like what Ward brings to the table and maybe he isn't hitting as much as before the injury but I still think he is one of our more aggressive forwards.
As for his line. Well Ryder has earned the No. 1. And Dackell fits in on the number three. So that leaves two or four. Dagenais has fit in well with Ribs and has scored some but would be absolutely useless as the number 4 doesn't suit his game at all. Ward can be effective as the two and the four. So while we are desperately trying to come up with a scoring second line, Dagenais will be given the chance.
When he can't score anymore I would hope Ward would take his place. It wouldn't break my heart to see Balej take his place but we need somebody with some size on the wings if we are going to play Ribs and Saku as the 1 & 2 centers.
