44 defencemen ahead = #3 defenceman offensively.

Ballard isn't going to fetch much, but he also likely isn't available this season without overpayment (eg, late first or equivalent value). I think fair market value for Ballard in the Summer (barring an excellent or terrible season) will be around a second round pick.
