Ryan's upside is far greater than Staffords.

For their careers Ryan is a much better player.

Ryan had 113 credited hits last year. Stafford had 102. Pretty close. That obviously doesn't tell the whole story, but it's something.

Andrew Cogliano LW

We don't give up Ennis/Hodgson/Foligno Also we don't part Andej Sekera Tell me what you think too little too much just right

that would probably get it done but I would hesitate to pull the trigger on that one. That's 2 tier 1 prospects, a proven 30 goal winger, AND a 1st?? I like Ryan and Coliano is good too, but man....

Pominville is more productive pt wise and better defensively, but less physical and four years older. They have almost an identical cap hit and rarely miss games. Those two players have about as even a trade value as possible. Who else is Anaheim adding in for Adam, Sekera, and a 1st????

I'm not sure Regier would trade Pominville for Ryan straight up, let alone adding a first round pick, Sekera, and Adam.

They could take any 2 of Stafford, Pominville, Hodgson, Ennis and Sekera as far as I'm concerned. Plus a pick or prospect. Although I doubt they'd be interested in that sort of package.

You'd be willing to offer Ennis + Hodgson + a pick/prospect for Bobby Ryan?

Personally I'd do something like Hodgson, Adam, 1st, 3rd and Leino (to get them closer to cap floor if they'd agree =) )
Hodgson is OUR top center, stafford isnt in the same league? Im not gonna bother arguing because many people have already put up the stats differences.
Our roster would be an absoulte mess after the original trade

Why must the Ducks get a 2C from us? Why can't we trade for Ryan and then at the same time, the Ducks work a deal to add a 2C from another using some of the assets acquired from us. Does not have to be a 2 team deal. A third team could be part of the process.

Stafford Buf 1st to Col
Stastny Col 1st Gerbe to Ana
Ryan to Buf

Terrible at judging value but something around that?

Last year combined they scored 70 points compared to Ryans 57.

But I'm sure now you'll say it doesn't count since that stance goes against your guy )

There's no denying Ryan is better then Stafford but he isn't THAT much better. Stafford also gets 1:30 less a game the last 2 years compared to Ryan and you know, the whole line mate thing.
over the last 3 years..
Dubinsky averages 20 goals per 82 games
Vanek averages 30 goals per 82 games

So I guess per your logic... you'd rather have Dubinsky++ over vanek

The difference between Vanek and Dubisnky is NOT Stepan+1st+Hagelin+Dubinsky type deals, not at all. I'd take JT Miller and a 1st along with Dubinsky, which is more then fair.


Bobby Ryan is a better hockey player then Thomas Vanek.

Going out on the trade boards and making comparisons of Ryan to Stafford makes you look like just another HF homer.

if anything... it's understated.
but you'd have to watch him play a little more
(clearly you don't watch much)

This board makes me scratch my head sometimes. We've gone from "I wouldn't trade Stafford for Ryan straight up" insanity earlier in the threat to "I'd move a combination that could be something like Ennis, Hodgson, and a first but doubt the Ducks would be interested." Let's just say that if you offered Ennis, Hodgson, and a first to the Ducks right now the deal would have been done yesterday.

Stafford is 26 and he will get better. Stafford hasn't played with getzlaf and perry. If he did play with them he would also have 4 30 goal seasons. Stafford is not better but you guys are over estimating the S*** out of Ryan. Trading away Stafford, Sekera, Adam, and a first is crazy! You give up a VERY solid top 6 forward who is 26 on a pretty reasonable contract. You also give up Sekera who is one of our best 3 dmen on a great contract, again he is 26. One of our top prospects and a first round pick in a stronger draft. We are good at drafting and you want to give up a 1st in a strong draft plus two very good and young roster players plus a top prospect for maybe a little bit better production and a little higher ceiling...you guys are NUTS! This hurts our team in the short term and long term!!!!!!!!!!

I could absolutely get behind this
Staff+Adam/Pysyk (either both of them or just one of them, depends what ducks want) +1st for Ryan (not sure how that value sounds)
then flip part of that trade to someone else, along with someone anaheim already has, for a 2c

Psysk and Adam are not tier 1 prospects and Stafford is not a proven 30 goal winger.

It's overpayment but I'd probably do it.

i think takeo has it right...

fans massively overrate potential, and idiotically underrate proven talent.

go back to 2008/09, and ask yourself if you'd trade Vanek for Gagner, Cogliano, and a 1st?

that must be the loosest definition of "tier 1" prospect ever...

If I'm Murray, there's no way I move Ryan for unproven/inconsistent, physically limited players like Ennis and Hodgson. They do have decent upside, but in this discussion, they are comically overrated based on hunches and glimpses. There will be far better deals out there.

They aren't being overrated because of hunches/glimpses, they're being overrated because they're the only top nine centers this team has.

I'm not moving Ennis or Hodgson for Ryan unless I'm getting a center in return. Murray doesn't have centers to spare, ergo Buffalo and Anaheim are not good trade partners. It's simple.

Ennis and Hodgson aren't "overrated" because of omg!potential. They're overvalued because they're the only 2 centers we have on our NHL roster.

Aside: Ennis is fairly proven in the NHL; he's proven he can put up acceptable 2C points, create offense, etc. Hodgson has at least proven he can play in/has a future in the NHL. These aren't entirely unproven commodities.
