Bergfors is another guy in this category.
As I understand it the Ducks are a little light in the wallet these days. They could retaliate down the line, but what are you going to do? Ryan is a LW that would fit on Kopitar's wing for 5-10 years. You don't get a chance to fill that big of a hole every day.

Neal or Hornqvist are secondary, but viable options in my opinion. I wouldn't mind seeing the Kings stick it to Dallas. I don't like Neal's game though anywhere near as much as Ryan's and with the overpayment in terms of dollars and cap hit that is involved in one of these deals getting the best player you can is important.

I'm not really interested in Bergfors, since he is RW.
