I wonder if Bobby Ryan is gettable. He was debated on here (was my first choice) before the Nash trade was completed as a younger and cheaper (in terms of salary cap hit) option. With the Ducks tying up Getzlaf at 8+ million a year, Perry likely to leave as an UFA, the Ducks may want some cheap talent. Plus they have some younger players they may want to tie up that won't destroy their cap. Who knows how financially stable they are. Acquiring Ryan would need Richards to be bought out. I don't think the Rangers have a match with Anaheim; MDZ (who Ducks didn't want last summer); Kreider (who the Rangers don't want to give up; a 2013 no. 1 draft choice (which the NYR don't have). Would have to put a package together centering on SOME of the following: Thomas, St. Croix, McIlrath, Skjei, etc. plus some early draft picks. Gaborik for Ryan with other pieces thrown in from both sides? Not sure if those would entice Anaheim to move Ryan.
