Ward's problem is that he is not as consistent as we would like, but he doesn't make the other goalies bad. That is on them and the system. In an ideal world where Darling took the starter's crease by storm, maybe we should have been looking to replace ward with a better and cheaper backup caliber goalie, but that didn't happen. They should look to keep him for next year if reasonably possible assuming they will move on from Darling. If they won't move on from Darling, then we need to take a chance and find a better goalie than Ward. Probably will fail at that as management/coaching doesn't seem to have a clue, but maybe they get lucky like a blind squirrel.
