Ballard could be a very good fit for the Blues if they are willing to actually take the chance. Given a real opportunity and to possibly play beside any of your RD could make everyone see the offence that disappeared in AV's system.
Beside Petro he would be a solid skating left side guy who can bring a bit of everything and could play a huge role. Beside Shatty he could put up point just doing what we've asked him to do and play solid defensive Dman. Beside Polak Ballard could form a solid two way pair where both bring a big physical element.
We are not trading Sobotka for Ballard. Sobotka actually plays an important role for the Blues. He's a player that can shift anywhere on the team. If a line needs a shake up Sobotka gets put on that line he plays anywhere from the 1st line to the 4th line. He is also and important penalty killer for us.
