Same post I put in the main thread.

I'm really confused as to how expensive people think Ryan is going to be. Supposedly he has work ethic issues. It took him 3 years to break into the league and he's had the benefit of playing with two world-class players in Getzlaf and Perry. There's a very real chance that his production drops almost anywhere else he goes.

Then you consider that Mike Richards and Jeff Carter, both as good if not better than Perry (though admittedly with not as much upside) were recently traded for Schenn, Simmonds and a 2nd or Voracek and a 1st...why do people think that Ryan is going to return some kind of huge amount?

Ottawa offers Foligno, Lee and a 1st. I can't see Ryan commanding much more than that. If the asking price is higher Ottawa doesn't bite.
