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.
Hainsey only has one year left on his deal.
Just my opinion, but if i was a Jets fan, id rather just hold onto Hainsey and let Trouba slide into the number 4 slot for next year. They could probably re-sign Hainsey on a cheaper deal then Ballard also.
I just dont see the appeal for the Jets, unless the Canucks add.
Ballard could use a change of scenery, but I dont think he has ton of value at 4.2 million for three more years.
