That is the most hockey sense he has shown since he arrived in Vancouver.

I remember when he was first traded and shortly after the season began he mentioned nobody noticed his birthday. He looked really sad. It just seems like Keith Ballard and the Canucks have never really clicked. Just as he begins to turn things around and tries to get on his teammates and coaches' good side with some fights, he gets a concussion/neck injury. Insert Price is Right fail sound.

From the interviews I have heard, I think Keith Ballard is a good guy and well liked by his team mates. Unfortunately he has come from being a big fish in a small pond and now he's barely a number 5 in a big pond.

He's just playing on the wrong team and needs a fresh start.

According to Botchford, Ballard has been diagnosed with a "Capcussion".

Haha I never saw that interview but I can almost guarantee he wasn't serious. He's almost never serious and in a constant state of hangdog/deadpan humour.

Expect rapid improvement after Monday. Is Gilman at it again? It is his time to shine, after all.

Or if there is an acquisition with a sizable contact, my diagnosis would be treatment on the LTIR and a return to the active roster the day after then end of the regular season.

I think the Pens might have a tagging problem with that deal.

If he was really ok, I don't see any reason for them to exaggerate it like this. You'd think they would just leave it at that and go quietly about their business til after the deadline.

Can't imagine them wanting to bring Ballard back cold after the regular season. Of course, there could be another LTIR injury between now and then to someone older, a bit injury prone and quite used to getting back up to game speed after a long lay-off.

I see what you did there Bob.

This is just 100% confirmation that Gillis is looking to add significant salary in the next couple of days.

It gives GMMG flexibility - it could be several depth deals.

Mind you Reinprecht will be available for the post season on a call-up so he could be one of the depth forward pieces.

Ballard on LTIR

Ben Kuzma ‏ @benkuzma
#Canucks place Ballard (neck) on LTIR. Frees up $4.2M in salary cap space to make a significant trade move Monday.


Remember when they kept Edler out for the longest time last year?

Anyhow... since it'd appear they aren't going to be trading any of their defense now, I imagine we're looking up front.

I am starting to wonder if Ballard is really injured or they made it up just to free up Cap? Conspiracy.

@capgeek Estimates show #Canucks would have ~$4.6m in cap space if Ballard put on LTI (until season's end). More with demotions. http://www.capgeek.com/trade_deadline_tracker.php
4.6, you could pick up a number of potential players with that kind of space.

You really think that Keith Ballard is going to just say "oh, yeah, no problem guys. I don't really want to play anyway, so I'll just fake this injury. I want some beach time instead of playing into the fun part of the season down the final stretch. No worries."

If he wants to win a Stanley Cup? Yes. Absolutely.

In addition, no professional medical doctor is going to risk his license by giving out a false diagnosis.
