Fowler's value alone probably exceeds Schenn's--at best, its close to a wash.

Hartnell + 1st + 2nd for Ryan.

I just can't believe that would be the best offer Anaheim would get. Brian Burke will offer up Kulemin + Colborne / Kadri, which I think would be more appealing than a mid-round 1st.

Thing is, Sbisa is more obtainable than Fowler however I don't see a Sbisa returning being in the cards (I just don't see us going back after players we traded away)...

Which means, since we already have plenty of offense, we'd be after Ryan just to be after Ryan...

Which begs the question, why fix what isn't broken...

So really, as much as I want to see Ryan, it's pretty dumb if we lose a 1st that we need to put towards defense or if we move more than or add to a future piece like Schenn going to Anaheim...

Which means Bobby Ryan won't end up in Philadelphia...

Unless we're getting Fowler too...

Which means we have to add considerably...

Which brings us right back to square one.
