It's not that he is a star but woefully under utilized by our coach. Case in point, he was a puck moving defenseman with some offensive upside in Florida. He has played less games on our powerplay in three years, than Markov has played games period in the past three years. And it isn't completely due to bad play. Garrison put up 16 goals last year and nope, not on the powerplay.

Frankly, I hope we keep Ballard. This season alone is proving AV is the problem, not Ballard.

This all said, I doubt we get much for him. Hence my preference to keep him.
