My thoughts also- we have a lot of similar guys on the roster now or on the way up, and if a team knew they could sign him long-term, Flip would be our best trade chip if Holland would consider moving him. Ryan brings a dimension we're lacking now, so I'd move Flip in a package for Ryan if the picks/prospects going to the Ducks weren't outlandish. I wouldn't trade him just to make a trade or to bring back a similar player- I'd only move him if we were getting a scorer with size back. Or maybe for a top 4 D-man if Kenny can replace his scoring thru a UFA and/or other trades.
