It looks like Ryan and his agent are playing hardball with the Ducks, so they may have (note: i said have, and not want) to trade him. The Canucks get a premier power forward (ala Bertuzzi during the WCE days) to play alongside Kesler.
That package is not going to land Ryan. Nor does Van have the cap space to trade for him. As it is, we need to dump Bieksa without getting any cap back.
