I think you're right in that Souray's market value is good right now. I agree that Souray has his limitations. I disagree with the common sentiment that he's a liability in his own zone. He had a rough start to the year, and he plays more minutes than he should even-strength, but I think he's decent in the defensive zone with some strengths that every team needs (an intimidating force that can keep the opposition to the perimeter; long reach, crease-clearer).
I wouldn't avoid talks of dealing Souray. I would be for dealing him if the right proposal came along. But I'd only deal Souray if I felt I could get a player that could contribute right now, and be a core player now or in the near future.
In your proposed deal, I don't think much of Comrie, but Ballard would be a very nice addition. I don't see Phoenix making that deal, though.
One deal that would be of interest (if it was viable) is a deal surrounding Souray and Stoll.
