- Matt Karash gives his opinion on Cam Ward (HockeyBuzz)
My Opinion: There’s no denying that Ward has had some good and bad seasons in the past and he usually elevates his game in the playoffs. But he’s also played behind some poor defenses that haven’t bailed him out in the past.
It’s possible that the defense will be better this season, but Ward will need to be more consistent. It’s also possible that leaving Ward off the Team Canada training camp roster has fueled him for next season.
