Found this when looking at something regarding Toronto's signing of Finger. Ballard is #1 in the league in quality of competition last year.

Put that together with Zherdev and Fritcsch going for Tyutin and Backman and the Olli deal looks very smart. Rather have Ballard, Boynton and Robak. Also, considering we picked up Stillman to replace Olli, it looks even smarter.

Itís worth noting that when James Mirtle ranked the available d-men based on Quality of Competition, Kurt Sauer was #2 among all available players behind Adam Foote (who didnít make it onto the market). Looking at all defenders in the league using Gabriel Desjardins' numbers on , Sauerís Quality of Competition trailed only Ballard, Lidstrom, Morris, Hejda, Foote, Mitchell and Clark and tied with Kuba, Hamhuis, Phillips, Bouwmeester and Ranger.
