I'd be surprised if Gillis is on the same page as AV (re Ballard) for this reason as well as the fact he remained very supportive of Ballard's role here during the off season, but then again, he does have "all the faith in the world in Alain." I guess Keith is a salary dump by this point, but we could have gotten a needed playoff part back for him had AV not needlessly created the illusion of an unplayable defenseman.
