I really want Ryan but the combination of things we have to trade doesnt sit well with me. at some point it has to involve Henrique or Merrill and I want to see them both with us for a while. Id be comfortable with like a 1st, 2nd and Matteau (and maybe a bonus D or something) but I dont think Ducks would be into that
at the end of the day, I think we just make the draft, move a couple of peices here and there and wait 1-3 years for all the young talent to work their way into our system
I have no idea why we're trying to unload our future for Bobby Ryan. I love Bobby Ryan but not at the cost of handing over Larsson/Henrique + 9th overall pick.
We have a aging roster and the last thing we need is to trade our up and coming studs for a guy who'll be hitting free agency in 2 years.
With our mediocre track record when it comes to keeping our own pending UFA's, that's a deal I'd never do unless Lou reached some type of agreement on a extention... and even with that, I wouldn't do it.
