Waive Ballard or Straight Trade For Komisarek?

71 posts in this topic

Anyone who thinks Keith Ballard has a future with Canucks organization is living in denial. His future with this team looks bleak. Like Shane O Brien I think Ballard will be on the move either by waiver wire or a trade. Coach AV really has no love for Ballard and Keith has underwhelmed himself as a Canuck.

Do we just waive Ballard and hope another team picks him up or trade him for another project Dman like Komisarek. Who know, maybe a change of scenery for both players might revitalize their careers.

Not even sure what to say to this, at least Ballard can hip-check people into there next game.

If only Ballard made half of the money that he does, then I would have no complaints. I think he's a decent player and a good guy in the locker room, just not worth his contract. It also hurts a bit given what we gave up for him.

I'll keep Ballard over Komisarek.

Look what Ballard has done consistently. For whatever reason, his game has gone to sh1t. Maybe it is the way that AV utilizes him.

How the hell was Komisarek an All Star one year? (Besides the fact that Montreal fans voted for him...he couldn't have been that bad?)

Is this even a question?

I would have anyone over Komisarek. Even Rome or pull Fitzpatrick out of retirement.

Are you forgetting how good Ballard played for us in the LA series or right before he got his concussion? (6 pts in 10 games I believe)

Or how bad Komisarek has gotten the past few years?

Ballard will be a fine D man this year. We dont' need to bring another new guy in to learn a system for a 48 game season. He has just had an undefined role in the past, but he's got it now. PLus the dude can hit and we need more hitting... always

Ballard is a good defenceman. He's just under utilized by AV. I wouldn't mind having Komisarek too. A big guy who can clear the front of the net. Something Alberts is suppose to be doing but unfortunately, AV doesn't like using him.

Ballard was a good pickup. He's not being given enough opportunities to play on the Top 6 and when he does, he gets criticized by us for his mistakes

I'd take Ballard over Komisarek any day of the week.

Ballard can actually skate and pass.

Komisarek is the original Aaron Rome. Why would we replace Rome 2.0 with Rome v.1.
