CAR Riley Nash for VAN Keith Ballard

Sort of stems from this:
http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/sh....php?t=1361723

Carolina and Vancouver could be good trading partners at the deadline, and have made deals before. The Canucks could use some depth up front and some help in the faceoff circle, and Nash still has some upside. Carolina gets a veteran defenseman that plays the left side (Carolina is one of the few teams with plenty of RHD).

Thoughts?

Canucks say no. 2013 Ballard is a whole other beast than 2012 Ballard.

Also Ballard has a broken foot, therefore cannot be traded.

Carolina deemed Jokinen useless because Nash stepped up, so doubtful they'd want to trade him for a massively overpaid 3rd pairer now.

Doesn't seem serious, if it was a move that helped the team it could still happen, but I see where you're coming from - Gillis has infinite patience for players with injury troubles; it's a pattern I've noticed a lot, and I believe it stems from the fact that Gillis' own career was marred by injuries.

I think you literally cannot trade an injured player.

Ballard is currently eligible to be traded.

We have no interest in trading Nash and can't take on Ballard's cap hit for next year. No go.

We wouldn't take on Ballard for free. Right now, we have around 6 million to resign 6 players (3 forwards, 2 defenseman and a goaltender).

And that's assuming we're a cap team. Recent comments from our GM left that status ambiguous.
