No, I would not do that trade right now.

Ballard has looked very good in training camp, and I want to see how he does in a few games before I consider trading him for another d-man.
I just can't envision Keith Ballard outplaying Lubo Visnovsky, at either end of the ice. Visnovsky is 1 season removed from a 70 point campaign - very underrated player IMO.

The cap flexibility going forward would also be very valuable. The Canucks will need to shed salary this summer and this trade facilitates that. And if Edler doesn't re-sign, maybe Visnovsky does?
