Yeah, that's right - I haven't been noticing him much either. And what a blessing. Any time I do notice him as of late, it's because he makes an outstanding play. Ballard has been so tight defensively since his return, it's unreal by his standards. This is the d-man we traded for.
Major props to KB4! Keep it up next season and the rest of the post-season!
It's not possible to "make this team look worse than it is"
In 30 years of following this team, considering the talent of this current version, this is the worst they have ever played during that time.
It's not over until a team wins 4 games though. Having said that, something needs to happen. Some catalysing event. I would have thought that Hank getting smashed into next week would have done it.. but again.. limpwristed response.
I'm not sure what the real problem is, but whatever it is, it's big.
There's a difference between giving up on the team and being logical.
I think LA is taking the series. Whether it's in game 4, 5, 6, or 7 has yet to be seen, but the Canucks are NOT winning this series. I'm still going to be wearing my jersey and still cheering for the team in game 4, but that doesn't mean I think we're going to make it to the 2nd round.
If we do make it to the 2nd round, I'll post a video of me slamming mouse traps onto both of my nipples. I'm a little overweight too, so I'll also get the embarrassment from showing my fat stomach all over the internet.
I don't know, I think it's a good deal. If embarrassing myself on the internet via youtube is what makes the Canucks win the Cup, then so be it.
