No centers on the NHL roster could be traded since the Blues only have Backes, Berglund, & Nichol currrently. So the only centers they could offer Vancouver are Hensick, Sonne, or Nigro. But at $4.2 mil a year for Ballard through the 15/16 season, and him being another smallish defenseman; the Blues wouldn't seem to be interested.
