Wow is this the 10th Bobby Ryan to Philadelphia thread in the past 3 days or so. Before Philly trys to get Ryan out of Anaheim they had better be looking to shed tons more salary especially if there trying to get Yandle also, Buying out Briere and putting Pronger on LTIR Is'nt going to be enough they were already $3 million over the cap and paying Streit $5.25 million on top of that. If Philly is going to get Ryan and Yandle that's another $10 million salary between them so Philly will have to send that much back to Anaheim and Phoenix to make it work.
As a Ducks fan, I would have been okay with moving Perry. I may be a minority but that contract is huge. I can see paying your big number 1 center and captain that generally always hits a ppg pace but a Star winger who has done it once and gets 100+ PIM every year? That is a lot of money sitting in the Penalty box a lot not scoring for his team.
I figured Lindholm would be able to step in and replace fowler
The point of having prospects is not to replace your former prospects. Is to improve your team. Fowler is as untouchable as you can get and Lindholm will be a very nice addition to the blueline. NOT A REPLACEMENT!
