The trade for Carter was made by Columbus under the assumption that the 8th overall pick wouldn't be a #1 talent like Couturier (he was ranked 1st overall by scouting services prior to the season leading up to the draft).
Also, Voracek was seen as a struggling winger and it wasn't clear whether he would ever pull it together and live up to his full potential.
Since acquiring the 8th overall pick and Voracek, both have appreciated considerably in value. If you offered Columbus a trade back, they'd take it in a heartbeat.
That being said, no we will not make this trade for Bobby Ryan. The trade massively favors Anaheim.... not to mention I wonder just how much Bobby Ryan's point totals have been inflated by playing w/ Getzlaf and Perry for the majority of the year...
Could you think of a package that would work?
As a Ducks fan I want Couturier and Vor.
