A trade is also a gamble, if Ballard had been a top pairing stud then MG looks like a genius.
That is the point.
Ballard has been terrible. We gave up value.
Gillis had good intentions but he botched that move.
Not the end of the world but a very clear and obvious error on his part.
And we clearly won the trade. We have had a roster player playing 5/6/ D when healthy. The Panthers have a a prospect that does not seem to be developing well.
Did GMMG hope Ballard would be better, damn right, we all did, but we are still ahead of the Panthers on that deal, there fore the value we gave up was less than what we received.
