I'd be happy with a Ballard & Ebbett trade for Downie & Barrie.

So since Downie was essentially traded for a 1st round pick, which of Ballard or Ebbett has that kind of value? Is it superstar "I can't stick on one team for more than a half season" Ebbett or "holy crap I have a horrible contract for what I bring to the table" Ballard? Just curious. Also, to add one of our best d-man prospects as well 'to balance things out' is ridiculous.

Avs have ZERO interest in either player. Ebbett because he's not much of an upgrade over what we have and Ballard because he would become our highest paid d-man on our roster.
