Nuck-Shot

Ballard the winger

74 posts in this topic

Just wanted to say I think they are onto something with this. He looked great playing rover tonight. I think his value in this role as well as backup left defence man in the playoffs in caese of injuries faaaar outweighs the return he will bring us at the deadline. He has the speed n toughness to look great with out other speedy skaters, and he can play as fancy as his heart desires. Thoughts?

Not likely to be a good line^ but I think he was better then 4th line I saw him on. I'd like to see him playing with Kessler actually. Could u imagine a Ballard/Kessler/Hansen or kassian checking line . Mean

A lot of people seem to like Ballard, but there's too much attention for the role he has on the team, especially since AV isn't going to give him a decent chance such as the PP.

I still remember when they used Rome as a forward over ballard... i hope if he plays again next game as a forward he gets one in the net he has had some great chances..

Who said the guy needs pp time? Give him a role his tools suit. 2nd/3rd liner shouldn't be that hard if he can play d already. We all know Alberts/barker is not a bad option as 6th d man since we needa righty.he seems to have a forwards hockey sense over dman skills, so just Let the man play as he's paid.

Pretty good! Like him much better than any other current 3rd and 4th liners so far. Apart from Burrows of course.

Love it he should be there permanently unless there is an injury to one of our key let side defenders.

Tanev + barker were so shaky this game. Good thing that most of their shifts were with ballard/burrow/ebbett.

I give him credit,but this is like watching the Canucks in the down years.Gillis better figure out which way he's steering this ship.

Ballard seems to enjoy his time as a forward.

He's finishing his checks, going hard on the forecheck, doing what a winger is supposed to do.

He looks really solid out there...... outta the doghouse for you Bally ;)

I don't think he has the shot for the twins like and is a bit small. His speed would also be wasted
