I would like a better return, but Sobotka is a guy I really like and a 3C is our biggest hole, I think Sobotka fits what we need perfectly.

Ballard had a rough first year, came in injured and was always a step behind, but since last years playoffs he has been very very good, he was scratched this season after 2 bad games (everyone was bad) but it was BS, our coach just doesn't like him. Edler and Hamhuis had palyed way worse and never gotten scratched.

He is capable of alot more and like I said Sobotka is a pretty good price, it would be nice if you could throw say Redden or Russel in though so we would atleast have a replacement. But Vlady alone I would do.
