As for them acquiring Ryan, that just doesn't make a ton of sense. Their cap is already tight enough that they'll have to move one or two Coburn, Grossman, Schenn(x2), Hartnell or Voracek's salaries. They also have to keep enough room to pay Giroux who will need a new contract after next season. That just doesn't seem like it would be possible if they want to keep some of their core players around.

Plus, a contending team, like Anaheim appears to be early on, isn't going to be moving their core pieces.
Yeah, at this point I could see Anaheim moving one of their D prospects for a flyers forward if anything.
