Well, for this season, it's not a problem. Ballard is the fifth best defenseman on the team, and he's now being paid the fifth most. His poor play has been exaggerated, especially for last year. Part of the reason he looks so bad is in comparison to his teammates, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. We have 5 top-4 defenseman, and a pretty good #6 in Tanev.
When healthy, I think the Canucks have a claim on the top D in the league, and are at least top 5. Healthy, however, cannot be counted on this season.
