When all is said and done, you have to think the teams hungry for Ryan will be willing to give up strong NHL talent in the packages they present to Anaheim. It sounds like the Sabres are starting with Roy. The Flyers will no doubt look to assemble an enticing set of NHL and futures assets. That's a player who will attract plenty of attention. I don't think futures will get it done from the Caps. Pieces like Laich and Green are at least proven on the big stage. If Green is viewed by Bob Murray the same way that Green is viewed by many Caps fans (#captainpasthisprime), then perhaps Laich as a starter is the way to go. His reputation is solid. Then keep adding.

It will be expensive, that's for sure. I am not sure that Johansson and Orlov have done enough to be core pieces in any proposal for Bobby Ryan.
