Like it or not, today, right now, Ballard is our 5th best Dman, top 4 on some teams. It'd be piss poor asset management trade him for some other salary dump or a late round pick, I can't see Gillis letting him go for a fraction of what it took to acquire him when his value is so low especially with the way the Canuck's lose Dman through injury, we always seem to need the depth.
I agree that we shouldn't move Ballard over nothing, but if the cap goes down then we'll certainly need to move him. Better to do it now than when the changes actually take place and GMMG is stuck having to dump him within 48 hours.

If Edmonton's brass is completely sold on Schultz being the real deal Whitney would be available. Can't imagine how low his value would be, though. He's on the last year of his contract, so the classic "negative value" response wouldn't exactly work.

Lubo had his hearing, today. Depending on the outcome of that, he'll be available.

Depending on the outcome, the Isles could be in need of one. I think Rozival as a free agent would be an option and depending on price Ballard would be a logical trade option; but again that would be contingent on price.

Caps have too many Dmen but the only ones anyone wants, aren't going to be traded.

With the right return, I'd say he is. I would give from a position of strength to improve an area of weakness. Maybe something around Sekera for Paajarvi.

There aren't 7 good d men on it though.
Leopold-Myers
Sulzer-Ehrhoff
Regehr-Sekera
Weber
Pardy

The bolded have major question marks, plus injuries happen. Remember how last year we only won something sad like 20% our games when either or Ehrhoff or Myers was missing from the line-up? Yeah, I'm not in any hurry to move a vet we know can handle a lot of minutes when Sulzer could easily play his way off the roster or someone could miss time with injury.

We're lacking 2nd/3rd line tweeners? Sorry, I like Paajarvi, but I'd much rather keep Sekera.

You want to move Hejda? One of the best defensive Dman in NHL?

As far as I can remember, Murray has been a left-side D his whole career. It's the one thing that makes him somewhat less movable for the Sharks. They have a ton of right-side, but not enough left-side. They were hard-enough up that they started trying to convert Demers to left-side last year, which didn't help with his struggles (although he did not play the whole year on left-side).

I think Ballard is much less available than us Canucks fans make him out to be.

We really dont have a replacement who I would e comfortable playing 82 games (Alberts, Joslin, Connauton).

Yes he is slightly overpaid, and stuck on the 3rd pairing, but we really dont have anyone else ready to step into a top 4 role if we run into injuries (aside from Tanev)

Smid, Schultz, Peckham, Sutton, Teubert etc. for defensive dmen is probably set. Yes they could upgrade....but they probably aren't desperate.

PHI needs a dman since Pronger is gone and Coburn is gone?
Who else needs a dman and what are they willing to give?
What it sounds like Tambo is happy with what he has and the asking price to sign or trade is too high and wouldn't make sense for the Oilers right now.

Whitney will not be traded until he can show he has recovered from his injuries. If he has recovered his value would increase and would be a benefit for the Oilers.

The Oilers are very high on Paajarvi, especially after his performance in the AHL play-offs last season. If he is traded, it will be in a package for a top pair D and not for a soft D like Sekera.

In that case we better trade Luongo too.

I think it'd be really stupid to make trades assuming the CBA will go down and there will be no cap relief in the form of a rollback or something similar.

Yeah, the Devils will be selling a defenseman. Most likely Tallinder.

Toronto would be looking for a top 4 shutdown guy, and have Franson available (who's obviously not a shutdown guy) if they can get one.

Coburn gone? Pronger is LTIR, Carle is gone, Mezaros + Lilja are hurt long-term, and Timmonen is a UFA next summer.

Detroit lost Stuart and Lids - Brendan Smith will be given the reings full time but a big bodied shutdown guy to take Stuarts role would be the best addition we could get.

Robyn Regehr would be moveable IMO. He had a terrible season last year and is overpaid @ 4 mill a season and is a UFA next summer. Hes also only 32 and likely has a solid 4-6 years left and would be a good depth veteran on any team that needs it.

Toronto has Franson who would be available for the right package / player.

Currently we have enough offensive guys on the back end with Phaneuf, Liles and Gardiner.

If we could move Franson for an elite third pairing shut down d-man, or 3rd line defensive winger I would make that move comfortably.

No he didn't have a terrible season last year. He may have slowed down a bit, but he did his job as a hard nosed, stay at home d-man with leadership. His preence is very important to Myers to round out the edge to his game and as an example to McNabb, who will likely be his heir apparant.

Caps have too many dmen under contract.

Mike Green
Roman Hamrlik
Dmitri Orlov
John Carlson
Karl Alzner
Jeff Schultz
John Erskine
Jack Hillen
Tom Poti is probably done and LTIR.

Maybe Erskine or Schultz is available.

Nope. Didn't have a bad year at all. In fact, Sekera emerged as a very good shutdown d-man last year having him as his partner. Coincidence? I'm gonna go with "no". Also, he brings much-needed toughness and leadership to our blue line and is a great example for Myers and McNabb.

ETA: It was also a huuuge deal for Buffalo when he decided to waive his NMC to come here after initially rejecting the trade. There's no way he'd agree to move his family again so soon, and it would definitely not help Buffalo's reputation amongst players.
