The Isles simply don't have that Upgrade piece that would tempt the Ducks into moving him.

As for the proposal. Nino is a solid prospect. But he still hasn't don't anything in the NHL after 40+ games, and has voiced his displeasure/unhappiness in the Isles organization, that will hurt his value at least a little bit. Then if you aquire Ryan a 2014 1st is very likely to be a 20-30 pick if not 25-30.

So its basically a decent prospect + late 1st + B Prospect for a Top line 30 Goal powerforward on a fantastic contract for the Ducks.

Just no reason at all for ANA to move him for that deal.

Hamonic++ is what could potentially get the ball rolling for the Ducks, even then with Fowler and Beauchemin, the Ducks might not have much interest in a guy like Hamonic.
I'd do Ryan for Hamonic
