(proposal) Van-STL, Van-CBJ

Recommended Posts

Vancouver trades D Keith Ballard to St. Louis for a 2013 3rd and a 2014 3rd.

-We don't have he cap space or the room to keep Ballard on this team. he has been playing well but now is the time to trade him.

-St. Louis is looking for a top 4 left handed defenseman. Ballard was playing like a top 4 left handed defenseman before he got injured. IF he is healthy by the trade deadline i think this trade would help both teams. Ballard could excel in St. Louis's system. he would have a reliable defensive partner allowing him to rush the puck.

Vancouver trades D Andrew Albert and a 2013 5th rounder to CBJ for D Adrian Aucoin.

-Aucoin is a reliable bottom pairing right handed defenseman that can even out the ratio on our back end. He has been effective in shutting down players and doesnt really make bad plays. he is like a bigger Tanev, but not quite as good. And after this season he will be a UFA, allowing Corrado to step up and replace him on that right side(if he is ready)

-CBJ is pretty much out of the playoff race, so a 5th rounder for a 39 year old UFA is good enough




-Barker, Vandermeer
