I honestly hope he requests a trade. He was playing some of the best hockey of his career and now this.

The guy will never be given a fair crack here.

Ballard can handle the other teams' depth players and come out on top. Alberts and Barker aren't capable of even doing that.

Ballard's poor value for his contract, but that means nothing when drawing up a lineup for a game and he's vastly superior to 2 of the guys who are dressing in front of him tonight.

time to see Cam "former 3rd overall and he scored 40 points one season, he's got to have lots of upside" Barker in action

Exactly this. In dog house since day 1. Literally has been one of our most consistent defenders. He will never resign here.

It will remain one of the great mysteries of life. What does it all mean? Is there a God? What happens when we die? Why the **** won't AV play Ballard?

There must be a trade in the works. There must be more to this, right? Right?!

They have their reasons. Vcash that Barker gets 7 shifts or less.

I hope Barker plays well at least. Get to see what he can do out there.

One bad game means scratch Ballard for two and likely more? If this was the standard for the rest of the defense, they'd all be scratched. Ballard has been playing his role just fine, and ahs been consistent of doing so, yet one game warrants Barker, Cam fricking Barker, to be played instead?

If the coaching staff punished every player like this after a poor outing there wouldn't be enough players to field a lineup a lot of nights.

The fact that Barker's in over Ballard is a real head-scratcher.
