I think maybe we don't watch Ryder play much when he's in Dallas. He'll likely end up around/just below the 30 goal mark, which is about usual for him. We're not seeing his frustrating tendency to glide around the ice at times instead of using his feet. We are mostly seeing his highlights. So he could come back here and play exactly like he has been in Dallas and we'd still be pissed off with him. Until he beats Fleury with his wicked wristah, that is.
The 2nd one is not. LA is looking for scoring right now. Non of your offer addresses that right now. Lombardi's job is on the line if they miss so he's in panic mode. Rebuilding teams could empty their prospect pool for their old vets this year.
Oh and the other two aren't likely either but the 2nd one isn't close to what LA is looking for.

The Bruins send
A conditional 2013 pick (If Bruins make the finals its a first, If not its a second rounder)
To the Dallas Stars for :
Am told the Bruins want Morrow (which I did say last week) But Dallas is prepared to do that deal with Ryder involved instead. Don't think it gets you Souray/Morrow

Kelly = Secondary scoring and cap relief
Kampfer = a young defenseman
Pick = 1st round pick
That pairs exactly to what Dreger tweeted LA wants. Don't see what's so "brain dead" about that.
That being said i do agree that teams like TOR. will really drive up his price cause i'm sure they'll throw a good amount at LA.
There's "young defenseman" and there's "young" "defenseman".
I don't see LA trading their captain for a package highlighed by a guy who will probably never be an everyday NHL player. I think you're looking at McQuaid or Boychuk, and Boychuk offers no cap relief to LA.
I see LA asking for Kelly and McQuaid. And I could see PC biting. And I wouldn't like it one bit.
