A team may have actually given up something for Ballard in a trade when teams had cap space. Everyone knew that cap problems were coming with Ballard and Luongo this season but Gillis stubbornly held onto his cards until his options ran out. Gillis should be fired immediately.
Did other GMs just learn about the cap going down now? If there's no interest in Ballard now for cap reasons, there wouldn't have been before either.
