AV and Bowness play Dmen on their strongside. Last year, Tanev, Bieksa and Salo manned the right side. As a result, Ballard was stuck behind Hamhuis and Edler on the left side. This year, it remains to be seen how the addition of Garrison changes that. Maybe they force Ballard to his offside? Or maybe they keep him on the left side with Tanev. Too soon to say.

Would Kuba get that contract now with the new CBA rules?

Would any Dman making 4m+ get that same contract under the new environment? Can't say either way. But the fact remains, Kuba _did_ get that contract just now, from a budget squad. That is inarguable.
