Ryan is a hell of a player and it seems like he hasnt been able to reach his true potential in Anaheim behind Selanne despite already being plenty of years into his career. I remember last year thinking when trade rumors floated about Ryan.... "will the ducks truly trade him without seriously experiencing the true fullest potential of Ryan"?

Do you guys think it would be prudent, if the ducks look to be out of the playoff run later this year, to trade Selanne to a contender? Thus getting some pieces for the future and giving Ryan the full shot at top PP and EV minutes?
Only person stopping Ryan from fulfilling his potential at this point is Ryan, if he wants to be the man, he has to show he can do it on a regular basis. No doubt he has flashes of brilliance, but he can literally go missing for 5-10 games at a time during the season.

He won't displace Teemu from the PP, playing on that left wing on the first unit is the best part of Teemu's game now.
