According to Bob McKenzie, if the Ducks are trading Ryan, it's to add two or three building blocks but not add to payroll. Aside from the fact that Staal's a UFA in after next season and could walk, he already makes 4M and a new deal would likely see him get 5-6M+.
I think Murray's looking for someone like Stepan, McDonaugh, Schenn or Couturier as the major piece's coming back. The problem is though, Getzlaf and Perry are also a year away from UFA status and if Ryan's traded and they walk, the Ducks would be screwed.
