I LOVE BALLARD!

Ballard is a tough punching bag....Perry's hand probably hurting now after all those punches.

Just me, or has Keith Ballard and Chris Tanev on the point on one power play looked stronger than Dan Hamhuis and Kevin Bieksa the entire season on the second unit?

Tanev and Ballard looked like they'd been playing PP together since they were born. Granted, it was a 5-on-3, but maybe AV should look into this more. Ballard is a good puck-mover, and Tanev is very calm at the point. This can make for a pairing that could QB the PP.

Man..... Ballard is mentoring Tanev really well, so that he can do everything right in the future.....

It's nice to see. Ballard is injury free, and playing with a confidence he couldn't always find in previous seasons here. He looks comfortable, and I hope he continues to do well.

regards,

Always thought that Grabner-Ballard trade was good.

I know it didn't pan out well at the start but so far he's been solid this season.

I'll say this year and every year for that matter, Ballard always sticks up for his teammates, and he is tough as nails, he ain't afraid of Perry!!!

Can't remember who it was that challenged Edler to a fight, but it put a silly grin on my face when Edler just pushed him away. I like how Ballard stepped in to stand up for Edler. I hope Ballard continues to play well, I've always felt a bit sorry for him.

Let's see Ballard and Garrison on the 2nd PP unit, top pairing can be Edler and Bieksa. Good way to build chemistry, Hamhuis might also work with Edler as well. Either way, we could definitely use someone to feed Garrison some shots at the point. <_<

As others have mentioned, I hope AV takes Bieksa and Hamhuis off the PP and replace them with Ballard and Tanev. The latter are capable of taking the role and it will help remind Bieksa and Hamhuis that they should be shutting down the opponents and not acting as if they are Erik Karlsson

i do too to be honest the reason behind the ballard hate is his contract if he was making between 1-3 million a year people would love him the fact he is making 4.2 a year makes him a easy target for ridicule i wish we could sign him for cheaper

Ballard plays OK, but I like Vandemmeer and Barker (both with very good size and toughness), I hope they get into the linup reguarly.
