Gillis just needs to bite the bullet and cut his losses at this point.
I like how you said Ballard is a disaster defensively and add that his offensive game is terrible.

Anyways, have you even watched Ballard play? He's the only defenceman that actually gets involved and plays bigger than his size. You can see him keep getting involved and slashing/pushing the player in front of the net in order to clear him out. He's the only D who has been playing with some intensity.
