Flyers Interested in Bobby Ryan
 
According to Eklund (so basically no one), the Flyers may be interested in Bobby Ryan.

http://www.hockeybuzz.com/blog/Eklun...y-Ryan/1/24544

A) That would be amazing.

B) No way the Ducks would want to trade him.

C) Even if they did, how could the Flyers possibly put a deal together that the Ducks would accept considering the lack of draft picks they could trade. The ducks aren't gonna trade him for nothing (or at all, IMO.).


Eklund is annoying.

JLHockeyKnight 11-26-2009 09:38 PM

I like how we actually have a "Speculation" pre-title. Really suits Eklund well.

dbr2 11-26-2009 10:01 PM

I don't think Eklund knows there is a cap in the NHL. Guy is a scam.

Then why post it here? To annoy us too?

I'm not trying to be mean, but seriously, why encourage the hits to his site? Why start a topic when you know that somewhere from half to all the posts in this topic will be about how Eklund doesn't know what he's talking about?

because as a fan its his duty to let his community know about anything flyers related in news regardless of how insane or unreliable it is.

CharlieGirl 11-26-2009 10:12 PM

Don't we have our own version of Bobby Ryan in JVR?

Cleary84 11-26-2009 10:28 PM

I'd love it, the dude would be so pumped playing for his "hometown", but there's no feasible way to make this happen.

I'd like a Jersey boy line:)

JVR - Giroux - Ryan is a dream that will never happen. Let it go.

Not true at all. As a Flyers fan he doesn't have "duty" to post unreliable, unsupported rumours from an unreliable, joke of a website/author. He doesn't even have any "duties" at all. Since when does being a fan of any sport/team suddenly obligate said person to duties as if being a fan of that sport/team is a job of his.

Secondly, everyone recognizes Eklund for what it is. Everyone. I could very well post this video as a legitimate source and it would be just as legitimate as Eklund:

PhillyFan4Ever 11-26-2009 10:59 PM

your presuming that we think its legitimate. its not.

1. Calm the **** down.

2. There is nothing illegitimate about the Onion, the Onion is all kinds of awesome. We should be posting more links to it. http://www.theonion.com/content/opin...d_home_rip_out

If you've put any legit thought into how to approach genies, that should always be your go-to wish #1.

GKJ 11-27-2009 09:26 AM

The Flyers supposedly attempted to get Ryan in his draft year, but as with a lot of guys, he becomes "a player we had our eye on." He was taken too high in the draft, and our ping pong ball came up at the wrong time.

Much like in the South Park episode where the boys were anime character ninjas and each had one power, Cartman's power was to have unlimited powers.

Kaktus* 11-27-2009 10:59 AM

Ryan would be perfect with Richards.. but there is no way we can get him unless we trade Giroux or Hartnell..

Teezax 11-27-2009 11:03 AM

Eklund still has us interested in Kaberle for Christ's sake, let it go man!!!!

Mike Richards 18 11-27-2009 11:56 AM

id say Hartnell could possibly be available for Ryan!!

Ryan Richards Giroux
Briere Carter JVR


Hartnell Syvret Cote for Ryan Pick

decadentia 11-27-2009 12:05 PM

I think we would be quite stupid to let go of Hartnell, we need someone in front of the net like him. I understand who it is for, but we'd be better in my opinion to deal away someone else.

SeanL44 11-27-2009 12:06 PM

I hate to play devil's advocate here but Eklund does actually have a pretty decent track record with Flyers rumors. His Flyers rumors sometimes end up confirmed by a legitimate source (i.e. Holmgren etc.)


Anyway,

To Anaheim:
Hartnell + Marshall

To Philadelphia
Ryan + Pick?

I love Hartnell, but I'm all for that!

I don't think we'd be receiving a pick back, Hartnell's best season was last year with 60 points in a full 82 game season. Ryan had 57 points in 64 games last season. Hartnell's contract is great, and he certainly brings more to the ice than just his offense, but I think we'd have to add more than just Marshall to get Ryan.

Oh, and Hartnell and Perry would be scary to see on the same team.
