Because any bid requiring less than 4 1sts would be most likely less than fair market value and rejected by Ryan, but even if it was signed by Ryan, the Ducks would match in a heartbeat. If you want to get the RFA, you have to go a bit above market value, like the Oilers with Penner, and that would require a bid that means 4 1sts in compensation. It's actually pretty understandable if you think about it.
