I think you are overrating Ryan just a little bit. I think he will become a very good goalscorer in this league. But to say that he will be a top 10 or even top 5 player in this league is a little ridiculous...especially coming from the wing position. He'd have to be ****ing amazing both offensively and defensively to be considered top 10 in my book.

A 30 goal-scorer with grit (think Corey Perry-lite), and a potential top pairing D-man is a lot to pay for 2nd year winger who hasn't set the world on fire this season. TBH, if we are giving up Coburn, I'd rather go after someone like Setoguchi, but I don't see that happening either.
