Perfect! A proven goal scorer vs a Yak who has never touched a NHL ice rink during a regular season. No wonder I took a leave of absence from this place. The posts get horrible every year. Good point soj

We need size on the wings for sure, despite acquiring JVR.

For starters would something like this make sense for Anaheim?

Carl Gunnarson - Top 4 minutes eating D-man - only on the Leafs.
Nikolai Kulemin - Top 6 forward Top 6 forwards need to score more than 7 goals
Tyler Biggs - Potential top 6 PF - Potential.

?
You need to give up something better than that

ALOT is a strong word.

Maybe Bobby Ryan will join the Kings, you never know!!!

Wouldn't it be awesome if Kopitar and Ryan could continue their partnership from MORA IK (Swedish Allsvenskan league) on the No 1 Line in the NHL - Ryan - Kopy - Brown. How would any team deal with that. Gazeeelion points...

Doesn't make sense because Ducks wouldn't trade for Brown.

Only if they play their home games at the Honda Center.

His argument presumes his infallibility at predicting future success. He wouldn't have traded a young 60-point scoring Iginla for the amazing-potential Stefan because, well, he just wouldn't have.

In this case, his argument is that Yakupov is certainly going to score 50 goals one day, and because Ryan certainly never will, Yakupov = greater chance of Cup. There are at least 3 false leaps of logic in there, but whatever. 50 is a pretty number.

Going after Ryan would be pointless. Leafs clearly have holes down the middle. Using whatever assets we have to go after Getzlaf would be a much smarter decision. Assuming its a trade and sign deal of course.

Leafs have way too many wingers.

Lupul - - Kessel
JVR - - Kadri
MacArthur - - Frattin
Brown - - Kulemin

I have a hard time believing one of Kulie/Kadri/Frattin/MacArthur will play on the 4th line.

With Ryan it be even more overkill

Lupul - - Kessel
Ryan - - JVR
Kulemin - - MacArthur
Kadri - - Frattin

imo if they get Ryan it's for nothing less than Rielly + 1st

More like Bobby Ryan PLAYS in the Leafs top line.
Unless Ryan plays C, he won't be on the 1st line, at least not to start.

Kessel and Lupul were PPG last year.

Ryan's 57 points was good last year, but not close to what Lupul or Kessel did.

Now imo, Ryan > Lupul as a player, but Lupul has some chemistry with Kessel which is allowing him to perform.

Why trade? Ryan don't like Carlyle. (But who cares when Dallas Eakins taking over next year RIGHT BOYS!)

Also, Anaheim will be destroyed this year if Getzlaf and Perry do not resign, they are UFA, we got money flowing out of our rectums, let's stuff some money in theirs rectum pockets and then our rectums will go and pay those ****** prices and see a good team for once.

Agreed. Although a 2nd unit of JVR-Grabo-Ryan seems better then our 1st imo.

100% agree with this. Ryan is a very good player, and clearly an upgrade over some of our other wingers, but we need a Goalie, #1 C, more size and toughness on the bottom six, and a decent skating Defensive D, before we upgrade through trade on the wings. This has to be last on the priority list for Burke, unless it is an absolute fire sale.

I like it. But i doubt Burke gives up the first. With those three players id think a 2nd or conditional 3rd would be more likely.
