This was taking over both the draft and Armchair threads, so I'll open this up for discussion here.

I love Mike Gillis if it doesn't include any top 6 forwards or top prospects.

Thank you oh wise mod. Lets save the draft threads and the armchair threads yes.

Panthers dont want NHL contacts so Im calling 25th pick plus Shirokov for Ballard.

Agreed with the sentiments here. Hope no top prospects are moved here. Ballard would sure be a great addition.

Someone is saying the player is possibly Hansen or Alberts.

I've always rooted for Hansen, but would make a lot of sense. Would rather give up Grabner.

Ballard has played every game in 4 of the last 5 seasons too. Something like that on a D man as solid as he is would be a GOD SEND.

I'm so excited. I hope we can pick up a second round pick in the deal

Love acquiring Ballard, but they need to find another top 90 pick IMO, preferably a top 45 ish. Maybe Bieksa or O'Brien plus a late rounder to move way up?

I like Hansen and all, think he'll be a very solid third liner but I'd drive him to the airport for such a deal to go through.

If this is true, then great news for the Nucks. Ballard is a top 4 guy for sure

Now if Gillis could land Hamhuis too... *wishful thinking*

I think it would be Hansen. The Canucks will need to find roster spots to add playoff experience and Hansen is a prime candidate to be one of those spots - as well as Hansen should give a team excellent value next season, something the Panthers would really covet.

Who? I'd gladly gobble that up, even if it means us giving up the 1st.

Getting Ballard and dropping Alberts in the same deal would be terrific.

Interesting. I wonder what it would include.

I really get the feeling from what Gillis has said leading up to the draft that he wants to stock up on some post 1st round picks. Should be an interesting draft.

Bob on TV just now. Said that there's a good chance Ballard goes to Vancouver for a package, and Vancouver will certainly be sending their 1st round pick, but with other things attached.
