The reason Joseph Balej isn't on an NHL roster right now, is because no team in the NHL wants him. His value is about close to zero as it possiblely could be. If we never traded Balej for Kovalelv, I'm sure at soem point between then and now we would of moved him for a 4th round pick or cut him, or something like that. In other words he would be in the same place as he is in now.

Heck..the Canucks were so desperate for fairly cheap offensive talent they signed Jan Bulis. If they felt Joseph Balej could give them any level of offense, I'm sure they would of given him a chance. But like ever other NHL team, the Nucks figure he is AHL material only.

Imo...

Joseph Balej = NHL bust. Period. Put him in that big group of prospects that at one time or another showed NHL promise, but never delivered on it.
