except that he's a bottom pairing guy by virtue of having edler and hamhuis above him, not by virtue of terrible play, as in your example.

but i agree that ballard's value as a result is too low now ...i would pass too if i were st louis. I do think there are a lot of teams though for whom Ballard could be very useful (Edm, for ex) ..but yeah, if I were them I wouldnt be opening up the coffers either...
