just wondering what you guys think of ward, on the habs.. he showed some good skill sometimes and if used properly may be a force.

I dont think he'll ever be a force so to speak but i think somewhere (here or elsewhere) he could be a decent fourth liner.

He's absolutely nothing but what we already have plenty of in the system.

I don't think any of us have seen him yet so it's kinda hard to judge.

Exactly.

What do you mean "if used properly may be a force", RZ?

Im looking foward to see what he can bring, seems like he CAN be a very good 3rd line player, he was one of my favorite signings in the offseason.

Yea I agree, he also been injured the past few years as well but only 26. I guess Sather is signing all these injury prone players so when they get hurt, Sather will have no choice but to play youth.

I don't know. I wasn't very excited about this signing. Hopefully he adds something.

Haven't heard word one about him from training camp so far, so let's just say he hasn't made too much of an impression.

Why is it necessary to go outside the organization, for something that can very much be filled within the organization. If there is something that this organization has plenty of, it's future plumbers.

To be fair to Ward, he never got a fair chance here in MTL.

He could help you guys on the 3rd line and be an excellent 4th liner.

If you guys give him a fair chance, he might surprise

Oh...

BTW ... He's skating is akward better get use to it

The point is, though, that we already have younger & cheaper players like that in spades.

He's a little more experienced compared to our future 3rd/4th liners, hes pretty decent hitter, and he has some offensive flair to him. If he stays healthy and can reach his potential with the rangers then this will look like a very good signing in a year or 2.

I have to agree. I'd rather his spot go to a much younger energy player such as Hollweg. I'm not sure what Ward really brings.

Who cares how much experience he has? Wasn't this supposed to be a rebuilding team? It is bad enough that our so-called rebuilding team will have only one forward under the age of 33 on the top two lines, but now we need to have experienced 4th liners as well? We have players that are younger and cheaper. What does Ward bring to a rebuilding team? Guess he is an example of "younger but not young".
Way to rebuild. Guess hockey is not the only thing that is different here. Apparently rebuilding is too.

Sather said they brought in Ward to be both a defensive and offensive force... he can do it in the AHL, but he doesn't cut it in the NHL with lagged skating and hands of stone. He's a good energy player though, kind of like Murray, but more size to boot and not as much of a junkyard dog.
