I would honestly not make Bieksa a priority. I see Ehrhoff more of a priority because he's the type of defencemen that contributes to our PP being #1 and our transition game being very elite.

Whenever Bieksa is not paired with Hamhuis, he is a disaster. Would I want to commit 4+ years to Bieksa again?

In the few games that we saw Ballard play with Hamhuis (against Detroit really sticks out) he played his best game of the year.

We know Ballard is capable of scoring at a similar pace as Bieksa (20+ points) and playing a top four role while already signed to a contract that Bieksa is seeking.

Hamhuis (4.5) - Ballard (4.2)
Edler (3.25) - Ehrhoff (5.0)
Rome (0.75) - Salo (1.5)
*Tanev (0.9)

IMO, I am totally fine rolling with that defence next year.
