YOu have over valued Ballard. He wasnt brought in here to be a defensive specialist which I still dont think he is. He was point producing , power play specialist in FLA. His offensive ability has eroded in Vancouver and he D is average. He does not play the tough minutes like Hamhuis or Bieksa. Getting rid of Ballrd is not going to be easy at all.
