I don't think...

we can trust anybody on this one.

Ward was benched then traded, and at the time of the benching, he was not this team's worst defenseman by any stretch. Perhaps he was benched to give teams a look at Rachunek and Pock, and Sather found no biters. Perhaps he was benched because the Rangers were working on a trade for him and seeing as though the CLS game was the last game before the deadline, perhaps they wanted to ensure he doesn't get hurt in that game.

As for the style of play...I prefer a different style, but do not think that every line needs to play a similar style. Jagr needs to play in a manner to make him most successful. Whatever style that is, it is. Every player needs to be in a role that fits them well, and needs to play a style to the best of their abilities. That's it. Shanahan being out of the lineup doesn't change the way Jagr plays one bit.
