if o'byrne is close to as solid as i think he is, which ideally is what ballard brings (shot blocking, hits, battle) except without the skating ability but also without the crazy blind bieksa passes, would avs fans be willing to make that trade?

local boy too, and obviously a much more palatable contract for a third pair guy. RH shot and as big as alberts.
No, he is pretty much always like that. He is incredibly underrated around here. Trading him for Ballard does not really help us IMO. Would rather not trade him.




And Freudian, I don't think anyone wants O'Brien
