Ballard for Grabner, Bernier and our first (Howden).

I like Ballard, but in hindsight (always 20-20), we'd have kept a 20 goal scoring Calder candidate (30 goal scorer on the Isles), we could have swallowed Bernier's contract for another year, and Howden would have really been a boost to our stable of prospects.

Plus, maybe, a better chance at signing Ehrhoff, given that we had signed Hamhuis a few days after the trade occured. Then again, who's to say we would have signed Hamhuis at the time?

Given the choices at the time, I don't lament this trade, but if I found out it didn't happen...."meh". I'd be happier with Grabner (or his return) and Howden. Grabner could have been our answer to Seguin in the finals against Boston
