Just look him up on YouTube, his hip checks are freakin' amazing.

If Bieksa goes, too, we're in very good shape to add one of the UFA defencemen on top of this.

Dreger was just on and said the reported deal is Bernier + 1st for Ballard, nothing confirmed officially at this time however.

We've still got so much cap room.



If we can deal Bieksa we have even more.

btw, in reality we are trading 1st round in 2010, second round in 2010 and second round in 2011 for Ballard, three picks for one player who never play in the post-season.

What a great trade by Gillis. Bernier is a useless piece of crap, and since he's gone, Gillis is only adding 2 million extra to the salary cap. There's still a lot of room left to sign a guy like Dan Hamhuis.

Still worth it. I think you need to inform yourself about Ballard, he's a very solid #2.

Man, those hips were made for hip checking.

Exactly what we lacked.

Florida trades Keith Ballard and prospect Victor Oreskovich to Vancouver for Steve Bernier, Michael Grabner and Canucks' 1st-round pick


Real_ESPNLeBrun

However, am told the trade is conditional on a player Vancouver wanting not being avaialble at 25th overall...

We do already. We're only taking on $2.2 mil in salary in this deal. We can pretty much afford another $4.5 million addition.

I know it is hockeys FUTURE and all but man, people around here overrate the value of a 25th overall pick so badly.
