I am just purely curious to what you would offer for Ryan.
The ducks need a young top pairing defensemen. They do not need defensive prospects or older defensemen looking for 1 last contract.
Once again, let me repeat that I do not think the Ducks should or will trade Ryan. I am just curious to what he is worth to other teams.
If the Ducks were to trade Ryan they wouldn't be looking for a young top pairing defensemen, they're already stacked on good defensive prospects. They'd be looking to replace scoring.
In the next 1-3 seasons the Ducks are going to see a huge crop of Defensive prospects coming up to the NHL that include Sbisa, Fowler, Gardiner, Clark, Vatanen, and Mitera. Why would they add more young defense to a team that's already going to have one of the youngest blue lines in the league in just a couple of years?
What the Ducks don't have is a lot of high quality young top 6 forwards. That's why Ryan isn't going to be traded, and if he were it would be for more offense.
