Ballard is a defender... how does this have anything to do with Leclaire?

He's the guy that swung his stick and smacked Vokoun. Even though Vokoun was fine, I don't want to even think of the devestation that blow would have inflicted on Leclaire.

I'm going to say that simple logic rules this one out.

Ballard makes 4.2 million for the next 5 seasons. Acquiring him means the end of Volchenkov in Ottawa, and I'd rather give the 4.2 million to Anton.

Because he just recently signed that contract and is a 27 year old top 4 defenseman, acquiring him would take more than Kelly and Lee, and I don't think Murray is willing to give up anyone who's making a big impact on the team right now. I don't think he'd be willing to trade Kelly alone, let alone Kelly+.

If we're look at a Florida defenseman, I'd guess it's Seidenberg.

Not that familiar with Ballard can anyone give me a brief rundown?

Seems like the type of guy that would really solidify our 6 D.

Bob McKenzie doesn't think Ballard is going anywhere.

I'd be more then happy with Sedeinberg

Phillips - Volchenkov
Kuba - Sedeinberg
Lee - Carkner

Until.. Karlsson and Campoli come back.

Unless Kuba goes the other way. Not sure how good Ballard is or how this trade works for both clubs, but if there's any relevance to this rumor it has to include Kuba to make it fit.

Let's hope Murray doesn't read this thread, this post might make him reconsider the trade.

This is too good to be true. Ballard is one of the most under-rated d'men in the league, this would change if he was playing in a hockey market.

Smartest post here!

But you'd have to pry him from my desperate Floridian hands!

Ballard is probably the most underrated D-man in the game.

F those who dwell on the Vokoun incident.

Ballard at 4.2M means good bye Volchenkov next year. No thanks.

I was thinking that if we get Ballard, we will trade Kuba at the draft. At that point he would waive because he knows in 10 days or w.e he can't veto any trades, so he may as well go then. That way we keep Ballard, keep Volch, and get some of the assets back that we traded in the Ballard trade.

Not if Kuba can be moved.

EDIT: when is today's deadline?
