With all these crazy contracts, doesn't Ballard look some what appealing now? I'm almost don't mind keeping him. I'd rather trade Booth and edler in a package to get Webber. We have Jensen who could possibly step up and play in the big leagues. Plus whatever we get out of this painfully long Luongo deal.
Ballard's contract doesn't look that bad now however his 2 seasons here have not been impressive at all. I wouldn't completely blame him either since the way AV handled his ice time was probably the largest factor in him under performing.
Also if we got weber, I think our top 4 on defence would be very solid and we should focus on getting more offence. Even though Booth had an OK season, his relationship with the team hasn't been as tainted as ballard's.
