So first off, congrats to Schneider on the HUGE win last night, and the twins for lighting the lamp. Next two to take off need to be the Higgy and Kesler. Booth just needs to find the back of the net, but those two need to play hockey..

But anyways, not many people have been noticing the solid play of KB4- that guy has been a STUD since returning to the lineup! Hits, shots, blocked shots, Good first passes. I think he was our best defenseman last night. Is this the emergence of the KB4 we've all been waiting for?

My Stars of the game:

1. Schneider
2. BALLARD
3. Daniel AND Henrik

Not sure why you couldn't post this under the game thread. The reason I point this out is there are already so many useless threads.

I come on and quickly scan the first page of posts for anything interesting. If I see a bunch of useless stuff I simply go to another web site and don't waste my time.

Then again you can do what you want. I'll simply go elsewhere. As will others.

Yeah Ballard has been playing exceptionally well. Deffinitly starting to look like the D-man we knew he could be when we grabbed him

I thought Tanev also played one of the best games he has in a 'Nucks uniform

Hamhuis and Ballard have been our best defenseman in the last two games.

When Edler and Bieksa started falling off they both picked it up.

1 problem- there's 64 pages under the game thread, and nobody reads it anymore. I went on it and I was the only person/member/guest/anonymous reading it for well over 10 minutes.

Glad you found it amusing. I guess reading comprehension isn't your strong suit. I simply said that if I see a lot of disorganized clutter I don't stick around wading through it. Who would?

He's really simplified his game and cut down on the giveaways. Looks good on him.

Still don't think he's worth 4.2, but right now there's no question he's better than our depth guys.

I agree with you, I don't know why you are getting flamed for this.

Because he's saying this could of gone in the game thread when the op is talking a about Ballard's play as a whole this series and not just last game.

This is a canuck hockey discussion board. I don't see it as a useless thread. Ballard deserves some recognition and the op was just providing a thread for it.

This response was perhaps more useless than the posts you're referring to.

ALso liked how he was agitiating and got really involved in the scrums around both nets. He doesn't take any BS but doesn't cross the line and he looks mad and they know he will fight. It gives us another "attitude" D man like Bieksa to offset our otherwise rather "soft" group of talented but not mean D.

Because he wanted to start a discussion on KB4. The PGT will have a number of topics being discussed. When I come on and I scan, sometimes I am looking for something specific. I thought KB4 was awesome last night so I scan the list to see if there is a discussion on him. Wow, sure enough there is thanks to the OP. I don't want to go looking for it buried in the PGT only to see that there are a few KB4 posts scattered in and then the discussion is derailed and people are talking about Kassian or Bitz or something.
Take your vision to the extreme, and the website has only one thread called Canucks talk and nothing gets its own conversation.
Get it?

I don't think he will fight anymore considering he was out with a concussion for a pretty long time.

keith ballard's hipchecks = a work of art


KB4 has always had great potential. It just took him a long time to adjust with AV and his system. I think in the process, he lost his identity as a dman. Now, I think he has finally found it!

Great night for KB4. His stellar play couldn't come at a better time.
