Saw some people pointing out something after Ballard's fight last game, so lets take a look his fights this season.
November 11th 2011 Ballard vs Perry (Anaheim Ducks)
January 17th 2012 Ballard vs Fraser (LA Kings)
January 21st 2012 Ballard vs Pavelski ( San Jose Sharks)
He is literally fighting for his spot on the Canucks lately but another observation is that Keith Ballard hates California. Why? What did California do to Keith Ballard?
In other news, yesterday at the Canucks Super Skills competition Ballard managed to beat Mason Raymond for fastest skater. I knew he was speedy from his end to end rushes that usually amount to nothing but I was definitely not expecting him to beat Raymond, even if just by a fraction of a second.
If anybody needs me in the next couple of weeks I will be in the corner of my parents basement, in my underwear, clutching my Ballard t-shirt. I may return after February 27th.
