Ballard essentially becomes a reclamation project until he can show he can play around 20 minutes a night against better competition.
Why on earth would we get rid of Ballard? You're probably one of the very few Vancouverites that would support this train of thought.

Salo is either retiring or going to ask for more than 2 million dollars next year, which he deserves.

Schultz and Garrison are not shoe-ins by any means.

I'm all for keeping Ballard, he's improved to the point where he was our most consistent Defenseman before concussion.

Really? you watch 30 games? several of them live? Sure could have fooled me
