With Ballard you are getting more of what we have ( Myers and Ehrhoff )...smooth skating D man with flashes of brilliance and a lethal hip check....but also poor decision making and awful reads in his own zone. If it wasn't for Tanev he would be a healthy scratch most nights.
He could be bought out by Vancouver this summer as well....So we could get him for free then if interested.
