Anyways, seeing as Vancouver would need to make cap space, we can't take your prospects and would require a solid roster player such as Kesler or Hamhuis +. A steep price, I know, but it's the only way our two teams can make a deal in a cap space world.
Ballard was mainly included as a cap dump, although he does have some value. I'm sure you could include a 3rd team like NYI and grab a 3rd and 4th round pick for him.

Anyways, are you actually insinuating that Byfuglien has more value than Kesler or Hamhuis? Kesler had a bad season, his worst to date, but I don't see him as on the down swing at 28 years old. He'll certainly rebound with a healthy start to the season. And Hamhuis is a rock, there isnt a team in the league that would take Byfuglien over Hamhuis. Hamhuis just put up close to 40 PTs while being a top 10 Norris candidate, you're under rating him.
