Ballard was and still is a 4 million dollar defenseman.... except he's utilized in a role reserved for players around the 2 million range.

In a limited role, guys like Alberts, Barker and Vandermeer can easily fill in for bottom pairing.
While I'm a firm supporter of Ballard, I'd much rather have his salary cap allocated to improve elsewhere on the team.

Gotta' bump it-heard Methot may have been hurt vs the NYI. Hopefully Chris Tanev's ok, but wonder if Ottawa would deal us a little of their young depth for Ballard?

It seems the Sens just keep on inserting young talent, & don't miss a beat.

Wow really.. Your the one saying this....? :blink:

First you went from: "Tanev has been carrying Ballard"

To: "Ballard has quietly been one of our best guys on the blueline"

Wow.. I like it. Glad to see you noticed his strong play just like the rest of us.

And to the OP, no reason for us to trade away our strength just to help out other teams, everything about our team is great, no reason to mess with that.


If you think that everything with this team is great you are seriously delusional.

That said:

VAN
LW/RW Jakob Silfverberg
LW Guillaume Latendresse (rental, re-sign based upon performance)

OTT
D Keith Ballard
2013 2nd
2014 3rd

With an injured Kesler:

Sedin/Sedin/Burrows
Raymond/Schroeder/Hansen
Latendresse/Lapierre/Silfverberg
Higgins/Ebbett/Kassian

Hamhuis/Bieksa
Edler/Carlsson or Alzner in a Luongo deal
Garrison/Tanev

Schneider
Holtby (From a Luongo Deal)

With a healthy Kesler:


Sedin/Sedin/Burrows
Raymond/Kesler/Silfverberg
Latendresse/Schroeder/Hansen
Higgins/Lapierre/Kassian

Next year if Latendresse is re-signed, and having re-signed Lapierre:


Sedin/Sedin/Burrows
Silfverberg/Kesler/Hansen
Kassian/Schroeder/Jensen
Latendresse/Lapierre/_______

LOL. You seriously think Ottawa will agree to that???

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs


   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

Notice how my post was over a month ago? :picard:

And that deal is terrible for Ottawa, I don't think they would trade Silfverberg for that package alone.

It's possible. I think Ballard has looked good enough that he's at least worth something. There are definitely teams with money to spend that would be happy to add him. And he's a lot more low risk now that there are only a couple years left on his contract.

I'm really not sure what his value is though. He's still kinda a big question mark so I'm not sure if he'd bring back more than a fringe player, minor prospect or lower round draft pick.

Part of the problem too is that I'd be a little hesitant to give him up without adding another depth D man in return. But he might not be worth anything in addition to that. Hence, it might be in our interest to just hold onto him until the off season.

Ottawa would NEVER do this deal in a million years.
