I wish their was a scratching head face icon.

Definitely not getting this one. I really like Vaanonen, he's a great defenseman, solid as a rock. He's a rock number 3 defenseman. I also view Derek Morris as a number 3 defenseman, although a totally different one. So in my opinion it's essentially a wash there.

So then we are left with Keith Ballard for Chris Gratton. I would be inclined to give up a mid round for Gratton, especially considering if Gratton plays well for the Avs he could be a good addition. BUT, not at the expense of your best prospect by a significant margin. Why? Ballard is no question a Top 50 prospect.

UGH, this is one of the worst deals that I can remember on deadline day.
