I do not want us to do this deal. I personally hate Ryan, so I'll admit I'm a little biased, but I feel like he is more of a complementary player to Getzy and Perry than a guy that can carry an offense on his back. I wouldn't pay what Anaheim would ask (Wilson+Blum, for instance) for a guy that I think will be keyed in on and shut down.

Wilson already has better stats this year, plus is younger. I'm not saying Wilson will for sure be a better player long term, but I would rather have Wilson, a guy who we know fits here and most fans like, than Ryan, a guy on a bigger contract that may have chemistry issues and is hated by many fans, myself included.

I am NOT saying Ryan's value is lower than Wilson's. I know Ryan is a better player. I am just saying it makes more sense for us to keep Wilson than trade for Ryan IMO.
