That doesn't make any sense. If Ballard was making good plays, he'd be getting more opportunities, not being benched.
AV does actually hate Ballard from a personality point of view. He's too laid back for AV.
Gragnani was getting playing time so that we could keep his rights as an RFA...as soon as he indicated he wanted a raise, he was gone. AV used to coach him in junior.
Hamhuis was promised powerplay time when he was a FA to get him to come over.
Edler is a legitimate top 10 offensive player, Salo has a bomb, and Bieksa gets ice time for being tough, when he wasn't on the PP he got no points.
