Guys like Ryan don't come around often and i would hate to see him end up in Philthy. For that reason alone we should be aggressive.

NP. And eh i like Stepan tho, i think he will be a pretty good player who will get a line going. I would try to trade AA for Ryan before i trade Stepan since Stepan has more upside IMO. I'm not sure what other centers there are out there who would be available but i don't know. Trading Stepan now seems like a bad idea since hs is so young, if he was 24-25 it would be different like AA is but Stepan is 21-22 and has 3 years to go before he is AA's age and in those 3 years he can develop into a great center. Then again guys like Ryan don't grow on trees and usually never hit FA. Losing Stepan leaves a hole at center tho.
