Does anybody think we could trade Ladd and Enstrom for Bobby Ryan? Does anaheim hang up the phone?
Anaheim doesn't hang up, but instead thinks maybe one of the jets players has an incurable disease and will drop dead before training camp. Why else would the Jets trade their captain and 'almost' 30 goal scoring LW'er - with leadership and character - and a top pairing dman for Bobby Ryan?
J Staal, who I consider a bigger 'catch' than Ryan, returned a 1st rd pick, decent roster player (2nd line guy on most teams who will play on their 3rd line) and prospect. Ryan would not net a top pairing dman AND top 6 winger, imo. If he did, he would have been traded months ago.
