My sentiments exactly. He might face more shots than any goalie in the NHL but that's a team system trait and it's not changing anytime soon. Carolina relies on its offense and Ward to win games, not good, solid defensive hockey.

When looking at a player from a fantasy perspective you have to look at the system and team-makeup as well. You'd likely choose a top 6 forward in Philly before you took a top 6 forward in St. Louis because in the Flyers system they rely on their top 6 more while the Blues spread their ice-time around.
