For ***** and giggles, would you trade Carter+ for Ryan?
Why would the Kings do that? You are helping out your divisional rival and I don't think it makes the Kings much better if at all. Is Bobby Ryan a better player than Carter? That isn't a rhetorical question either. I really don't know but Carter does give the Kings even more depth at the center position should someone get hurt. It is good to have that kind of redundancy in the line up. Lewis, Richardson, Fraser, Stoll, Carter, Richards and Kopi can all play center. Maybe I'm being a homer but I think Carter is more valuable than Bobby Ryan. Center is a much harder position to fill than wings. The fact that the Ducks are willing to tradea first line winger for a second line center should tell you all you need to know about the value of both positions.
