Sure, that's always a possibility. But as you said, Ryan isn't necessarily a finished product himself, so we can only constitute who he should rightfully be considered ahead of at this point.

This is the first year that Kessel has something substantial over Ryan - I see an argument that can be made, but it should not be as night/day. On EJ, your words say it best - "since January". That really should not make up for the past years in which Ryan was long ways ahead. I also disagree about Staal, and I think the consensus would still be Ryan being more valuable in a vacuum.

Not much need for or interest in Schultz or Ward, who both make too much money for the Ducks' budget for what they would add to the team.

Well, this basis for a proposal is a classic already. Neither side is completely against it. There always seems to be a consensus that Boston would have to add something, and that tends to be where things fall through in these threads.
