For the Canucks, Keith Ballard is the most likely choice; if he gets cut then I would like to see a prospect like Connauton given a shot on the 3rd pairing, otherwise I wouldn't mind using a pick to acquire a defenseman from the Devils or Sabres to shore up our depth.
Depends how much cap space we need, but I agree that Ballard would be the likely candidate. He just doesn't fit in here, and Connauton has looked great playing with Tanev in Chicago.
