    Didn’t Ballard have surgery in the off-season? Didn’t he just comoe off of a cuncussion? If so, then the rest might not hurt him. Rome (imo) is on his way to being a solid D man. Ditto Alberts. We should be so lucky, if Ballard is healthy and he sits, then our D = solid

    I agree with you that the Canucks have been lucky to have the depth defensemen playing so well.

    The counterpoint to that though is… If Ballard is healthy, shouldn’t he be playing to get back up to speed? How does he back in game shape from the press box? He doesn’t need rest; he needs to play and get better and get back to being a top-4 defenseman.
