VanRyn won't be traded. Jacques is counting on him returning and regaining the form he had a couple years ago when he was one of our top defenders. Look at the quotes from Martin. He says "Hopefully we can add a puck moving defensman to our team, and also that Mike can come back and be a solid contributor for us."

VanRyn is a puck moving defensman when he's on his game and was very good for us before his wrist injuries. If he can rehab and come back healthily and strongly, he can be a valuable player for us. The potential risk of trading him vs. keeping him and seeing him return to form isn't worth it for us.
