i live on the east coast, so maybe i have it wrong.

i think you are right that the caps fans say no to this suggestion
That was his initial season with us, his bad year. The only time Ballard was not in the line up last year is when he was injured. This is like us pegging Kulemin as a 7 goal scorer because of last year, and not letting go when he does better next season. I mean I wouldn't peg Ballard as a super valuable commodity, he's still buy-low, but he is far from a failure.

I think we may have scared them off
