the Rangers have zero chance of acquiring Ballard. Even if he's bought out from Vancouver, and agreed to sign at minimum with the Rangers, they would pass. Ballard just doesn't work with AV, and I doubt they would even consider that failed experiment again in New York.
some players just don't work with some coaches.. Ballard and AV is one such combo.
Though don't be surprised to see Rome acquired. A clear example of the opposite - an average (or arguably below average) dman that seemed to fit AV's system perfectly and did play much better than the #7 role he was supposed to fill on our roster.
