Ballard Gets a Mulligan

Standard Spin: The Vancouver Canucks' coaching staff is willing to forget the "lost" season that was '10-11 for Keith Ballard. He signed for big money, but only played 65 games and collected a measly 7 points. Should fantasy GMs be so forgiving? With Ehrhoff now in Buffalo, Ballard will be asked to step up and fulfill his contractual expectations. There is definite bounce back potential here. (Sep.15)
