Scruitiny abounds, yet not many have given a great deal of appreciation to the style and quality of goaltending that has allowed Ward to win as many games as he has. I wouldn't expect a team that doesn't see a lot of Carolina to know how big of an impact that goaltending has on this team, but due to the offensive style and counter attack they play, Cam Ward probably faces as many quality chances as anybody else in the league.
