(If you say the Robidas incident That was self defense. )

Is Ryan a phenomental player? Absolutely. But I am not willing to pay the asking price for him.
As always, you and I see two sides to every coin. Ryan is a great player. Do I love him? No. I hate him. Can I grow to love him? Yes. I think being away from Getslaughed at and Perry can only help Ryan. Ryan's contract is super super super sweet too. Much better deal than Erat.

I would, however, be unwilling to part with Blum and Wilson in the same package. I could stomach Wilson and Ellis, I could stomach blum and Kostitsyn/Erat/Hornqvist, but not both.

Offer one
Blum + Kostitsyn + 1st

Offer two
Wilson + Ellis + 1st

Offer three
Ellis + Lindback + 1st + Watson

I would never do Wilson and Blum for one player, even for one as good as Ryan
