My guess is that the NHL exec is feeding Kyper some bull, in an attempt to create some public pressure. Ryan is signed long-term to a fair deal (while Getzlaf & Perry will be UFAs in only a year and a half). To get Ryan, teams would have to completely overpay (or iow, Carlson AND Eakin). Doesn't have the smell of a McPhee type maneuver.
