For all of our scoring prowess, we don't have any truly elite goal-scorers. I love Hartnell, but i'll be shocked if he can duplicate his numbers next year. Ryan would give the team a different look, and in my opinion would make us even better offensively than we already are. If I'm dealing either JVR or Schenn plus picks or replaceable assets, I'm on board. If we're talking more than that then I balk.

If I had to choose I'd look to acquire a frontline Dmanfirst, but if one isn't to be had, I could live with adding Ryan.
