That's something that no one can answer but him.
I agree, in fact, I expect Ottawa will start talking extension with Ryan at some point this season rather than wait until his contract runs out, they have done it before with players they want to keep. Unless Philly is willing to give up two 1sts, Vorachek & Simmons or something crazy along those lines. Ottawa knows Philly wants Ryan & they would make them pay big time to get him.
