Sure went downhill in that Canucks jersey. When he was with Florida he was a very productive player. I wonder if he'll clear waivers?

Buyout?

 

 

i read somewhere that it was "regular waivers" (i forget the technical term) as in not for a buyout.. looking for a link now

 

 

VAN's Keith Ballard is on conventional waivers. Not $100 unconditional waivers, which is necessary for buyout purposes.

 

 

edit: found the link. bob via the tweeter machine.

Anyone in Vancouver knew that Ballard wouldn't be back. 

 

I'm a little surprised that he wasn't traded or bought out though given vancouvers cap issues. I would imagine one of those is the end goal.

For a good physical 3rd pairing Dman Ballard is quite a good option. His contract, however, is appalling and ruins everything.

I think the reason he wasn't traded is that every GM in the league must have known they had to buy him out otherwise.

Perhaps, but then trade him for like a 6th round pick or something to someone that needs help reaching the floor. I'm not saying be picky about it in the least.

 

If anything this just goes to show you how important it is to do shorter term contracts if there is any doubt at all about the player.

Is Vancouver going to be pursuing defensemen through free agency?

Ballard for Quincy and sammy.... Go................


It's been a great honor for me to be a player for the Detroit Red Wings, to play for an Original Six franchise. I know I'm far from perfect, but I learned a lot.

Kris Russell (STL) on regular waivers. Keith Ballard (VAN) clears regular waivers.

If he gets claimed on waivers, does his cap hit stick with the canucks? or go away because hes on a different team? maybe this is why they put him on waivers? thinking he'll get claimed.
