Ryan is about to reach his peak years in terms of goal scoring. It would be nice to have him with Giroux but its not really a need when there are options in free agency. Not for what Murray is asking.
Good point about defensive play, I don't claim to know everything about Ryan's game. And I'm not saying sell the farm for Bobby, I'd rather sign Doan first before making a trade. I like Jake a lot and would rather not move him, but I just like Bobby's scoring and potential play with G a little more.
