Aaron Ward is the worst player in the NHL.

Putting a spin on the question, Aaron Ward has been said to want the Jackets.

From the Dispatch's CBJ chat yesterday with Aaron Portzline:

Quote:
Aaron Ward has always had interest in the Blue Jackets, I know that. (He told me that first hand a number of years ago.) Ward wouldn't surprise me. For now, I'm told the Blue Jackets are waiting to see how this (the Klesla injury situation) goes.

Walker is absolutely useful player. But Ward is not, he's that bad this season.

How many of New Jersey's losses has Peters greatly contributed to? How many games has Peters single-handedly lost for his team? Surely not as many as Ward.

Ward is the key culprit on at least one goal-against every game (lately it has gotten up to 2+ goals a game). He is horrifically slow and gets burnt all the time, makes terrible defensive reads, can't handle the puck, can't pass and can't shoot. He is by far the worst defenseman on a team that is 30th in goals against. Whoever is paired with him automatically becomes the second-worst defenseman due to Ward's inability to play hockey.

I doubt anyone outside of Staal and Ward is unavailable on Carolina.

Pitkanen. He's probably on the not likely to be traded, but if the right price comes around...

Prettymuch. Guys like Sutter, Ruutu, Pitkanen and Gleason could be had but it's extremely unlikely that another team would give up what it takes to get them.

UFA at the end of the season, $2.5M cap hit. He also has a NTC that he would have to waive.

Walker is still a good hockey player...Ward is simply not.

Yes....but he does like to pinch at inopportune times. That has to count for something no?
