When its time to talk about Ballard, Canuck fans explain to me how good and deep is their defense and Ballard would be a top 4 defenseman on many teams in the league.

When they talk about their goalies, Canuck fans will describe how their defense is playing poorly this year, and their goalies are incredible.

So which one is it?

Is Vancouver defense very good and Ballard, a top 4 defenseman on many teams, is forced to accept a minor role? (And at the same time. Vancouver strong defense help their goalie look good.)

Or is Vancouver defense playing poorly, counting on the incredible play of their goalies to save them. Which mean Ballard is a 6th defenseman on a weak defensive team and should not be good enough to be a top 6 on most teams around the league? And at 4 200 000$, his value should be negative for a 7-8th defenseman.
