EDIT: Never mind, I didn't realize he played with Anaheim last year, but I remember him sending out that e-mail to some GM.

I always liked him with Nashville. For 650k, that's a good signing.

Wanted him as a Canucks backup this year. Too bad.

Very solid signing, IMO. He's better than his reputation among the HF general public.

He was great in Nashville, kind of lost his way in Anaheim, but is a very solid backup. The Canes are my sleeper team in the East, though I'm not sure you can even call them a sleeper anymore with all the moves JR has made lately.

Yupp, his reputation from his Tampa days has stuck with him but he was a solid backup for Anaheim. I think he could have gotten an extension from the Ducks, had he not missed nearly the entire 11/12 season due to groin problems.

More nervous tics and goalkeeper idiosyncrasies than the next five NHL netminders combined.

It was a real treat watching him play.

Maybe Ward finally has a capable backup goalie. I don't believe he's had that luxury in his NHL-career so far?

More or less. Boucher was only mildly terrible but seems to be made of glass these days.
