Ballard wears his heart on his sleeve each and every shift, and has one of the best hip checks out there. He was asked to pair up with Morris and forced to take on a primarily shutdown role against the opposing team's top line, but he's better suited to a second pairing with more offensive freedom. He could realistically put up 40 points (if the past two seasons haven't sucked his offensive skills dry) and be defensively responsible, but I think he's overmatched against the Iginlas and Thorntons out there.

Essentially a second-pairing defender who leads on and off the ice.
