Ballard (5.628 million to buyout) vs. Komisarek (2.345 to buyout) so it'd be an easy sell to Vancouver. Vancouver might even have to retain a bit of salary.

Ballard still has the mobility and was a # 2/3 all purpose physical Dman prior to joining the Nucks so the Leafs might feel they can get him back on track.
Leafs already have six defenceman. Three are RFAs but I expect them to be resigned.

P.S. Can you shop around compliance buy outs? Just curious.
