Agreed. And moreover I am pretty happy that Ball is the TV caller, and not tbe radio voice. All those years when Maher was doing the radio calls there was a mix of guys on TV after Ed Whalen, and none of them were great. It was always fairly disappointing that Maher was the radio guy when I mostly wanted to watch games on TV.

He is everything I thought Travis Hamonic would be. His net-front game is strong, his shot blocking is perfect, and how engages along the boards and neutralizes players?

Love the dude as well. Still early and plenty of time for things to go sour , but I can see why Canuck fans were upset to lose him. Huge upgrade over Hamonic.

At this point all of the former Canucks are the least of my worries with this team.
