No way the Ducks do this deal IMO.
Beaulieu has too much upside:6'3, already one of the top skaters, great hands, passing, vision...just too much upside for the Habs to trade. This guy has the potential to become Norris material...might bust, but still has the tools. Just can't see MB trading him given his "I've got a long term plan" speech.

As for Ryan, he is a solid value, but Plek also is, so I would not add our prime prospect at D (Tinordi is not a prospect anymore) in that package. Maybe add a Diaz or Louis Leblanc, who might explode given a proper chance. Or offer Kristo. Can even add a 2nd on top of it.

I do agree though that a "Ryan sweepstake" would probably fetch a king's ransome for the Ducks as this year is very shallow in free agents.
