Speaking of defensemen in Iowa, we have Jonathan Blum in the core down there, and by accounts and his time in Nashville, might be an additional callup if ever needed. It sure is different than past years when one injury significantly hurt us. Here's to hoping Fletcher continues to restock the pond down there. It's absolutely necessary for long-term sustainability. Let's beat Toronto tomorrow night!!!

Ballard needs to toughen up. Jonathan Blum is a scoring defensemen, so bring him on up.

Sounds like Zucker is adding ornery to his game. And, I like it.

Sounds more like Zucker has added stupid to his game. Getting thrown out and suspended isn't really beneficial to the team.

From the sounds of it, Ballard probably suffered a cracked/broken rib when he blocked a shot in the Devils game (he left the game and didn't return). No amount of "toughening up" is going to enable someone to play when simply breathing is a painful endeavor.
