I do however see the logic in keeping Keith Ballard off the right side of the ice, where he is atrocious. Edler may be substantially worse than his potential in his own zone when he plays on his off side, but that is still NHL calibre play.. can't say the same for KB4.
Maybe once Ballard is off the team we can find a player to replace him who is capable of playing the right side, then we can ice a blueline where every player is comfortable in their position and we have three very, very strong pairings.
I don't think it's out of the question to say Frankie could be ready for the bottom pairing right side role next season. I guess it kind of depends on if the Rangers go to the Mem Cup. I'm assuming he finishes the season in the AHL where I expect him to acquit himself well.
