I still can't help but think that we could've gotten him then. Koivu was tight with Selanne and Anaheim had the space to add him.

Anyways, I don't see Ryan going anywhere now. He's 24. Why do they let him go now?
I remember all those rumors surrounding Souray around the trade deadline when he had his big season. So many names floating around, including Ryan and Getzlaf. Considering Rivet had just netted Gorges and a 1st, either Ryan or Getzlaf weren't outside the realm of possibility.

Could have cashed in big time. Over the years, we let so many players leave as unrestricted free agents without getting anything in return...
