Bogosion
Hainsey

The Jets have Stuart/Clitsome/Postma to fill out the bottom pairing.

Trouba is also looking pretty good, wouldnt suprise me if he makes the Jets next year.
He said that Winnipeg needs a "LHD, perferably puck moving, but doesn't need to have a dynamite shot" and that describes Ballard.

If Ballard plays like he did prior to arriving in Vancouver, then you get a top 4 d-man and it makes Hainsey expendable.
His style of play never meshed well with Vancouver's system, and a change of scenery would be very good for him.
