I want coach AV to gift wrap minutes for him and put him in situations where he can succeed, like he did with Hodgson, to drive up his value a bit before trading him.
With a shortened season there is less opportunity to do that. The NW division has gotten tougher this year. The Canucks cannot afford to have a sub-par d-man being showcased. If Ballard wants to play top minutes, he'll have to earn them.
