OK, so I'm from Vancouver and I despise the Canucks. I think the management is putting Ballard on "LTI" so that they can free up some cap room for a late acquisition but I don't think he is seriously injured. Something looks suspicious if you ask me. He was never a favourite of AV, Gillis gave Ballard a stupid contract. This is one way to sweep him under the rug.
One reporter - Ballard injury described as "upper salary." Out indefinitely @TSNBobMcKenzie VAN put Keith Ballard on LTIR, creates $4.2M in cap space.
Thinking back to this whole game and trying to be objective and not homer, we were lucky to be leading 3-2 with a few minutes left in the 3rd. Up until that point, we were outplayed. Having said that, if we do have a 3-2 lead with 20 secs, we got to lock it down. Definitely miss #13's defence and shootout skills.
It will be a nauseating day here tomorrow in Vancouver. But we're still #1 point wise.
Looks like some kid named Quincey is thanking his lucky stars.
Agent to Kyle, 'You've been traded from Col to Tampa.'
Quincey, "Oh ...".
Agent, "Wait, you've just been dealt to Detroit" ...
Quincey, "OMG, is this for real? Tell me I'm not dreaming!"
