Duck's will be coughing up more then they wanted to pay for, Bobby Ryan, by 1M (Their offer being at 5M) but also would be make Ryan a UFA at the end of the contract.

I understand that the Ducks are trying to offer Ryan a more lucrative (although sub-6M/yr) offer to stay long term, and a less financially favorable short term deal. I think the hold up is Ducks trying to avoid the 3 year term all together.

I also understand, Anaheim has an internal cap by management (Although, I could be wrong)

At best, LA picks up Bobby Ryan! and based on last seasons compensation, LA would have to pay up just a First, Second, and a Third. Chump change for LA

It's a win-win!
Bob Murray: "If somebody wants to give him an offer sheet, we have lots of space. We'll match."

Could set up a real interesting offseason next year though. With the Kings needing to sign Simmonds, Johnson, and Doughty things could get interesting.

The free agent crop of d men is running pretty thin right now. Good luck finding a top 4 in there to play with Wiz.
Brookbank and Sbisa is gonna be a pretty shaky bottom pair.(usually want a solid vet to pair with rooks)
I agree Fowler will not be ready. Management has stated Sbisa will play a top 4 role somewhere, either in Syracuse or in Anaheim but he wont be on a bottom pairing. Brookbank was a great #6 towards the 2nd half of last season, most are very confident with him on the 3rd pairing.
