Ballard is a prospect, noting more, nothing less.
If Morris doesn't break out in PHX and Ballard doesn't pan out, the Avs will eventually win this deal
. Plus, if the Avs go on to win the Cup with these guys contributing... the Avs win hands down.
By the same token, if Gratton falters badly, or if Vannanen doesnt do as well as expected, then it makes it look worse for the Av's....the "if" scenario can work both ways.
