To me, shows that pro-scouting has been a problem for the past 2 years here.
That's fine....but trading for Ballard was the right move at the time of the trade. It didn't work, but that doesn't mean it wasn't a gamble worth taking. The team would have a good but not elite team if they'd missed out on both Hamhuis and Ballard.
