He's a reclamation project but he could work out very well.

But his contract is terribad for someone playing on the third pairing, hence why we are trying to get rid of him (also Cannauton's success in the AHL)

what's the best offer for Hamhuis/edler? What player is more appealing? Both will cost much more than Ballard but are a top 3 defenders for sure
Nucks won't trade a guy who took hometown discount to go play for them, they would look bad in the eyes of the rest players from BC, plus he's there best d-man.

Teams don't trade away players they just signed as UFA's.
