I think Anaheim eventually comes off their requirement for a 2C coming the other way in a trade for Ryan. Howson reportedly wanted Stepan or Kreider, but got neither. How many teams are willing to part with young centers with top 6 potential? I'd say not many. It's probably why the Flyers dropped out of the running, reportedly.
The context of the situation has to be accounted for. If no one is going to give a 2C for Ryan, and Anaheim wants to trade Ryan, then Anaheim must change their demands. Or not trade Ryan.
For me, the real question centers around the internal relationship between Ryan and the Duck organization. If either party, or both, is committed to parting company, then that forces the trade hand a bit in terms of demand. We'll never know that though....
I predict that Anaheim eventually moves Ryan for a good package that doesn't include a true 2C.
