Let's play a game: The Bobby Ryan Contract

We all know he's going to sign with us, right?

What do you think the term will be and the length? (This is to help compromise some of the boredom felt this offseason, such an anti-climactic FA period).



17 years / $102M?


Realistically, I would be thinking along the lines of:

$4/20M or $3/14.5M

Not more speculation stuff. I just want him to sign damnit

I'm hoping its atleast 4 years. 3 would be brutal come summer time if Getz and Perry aren't already extended...

4 years 19.6 million.

I think speculating the date would be better.

I'm torn in between 8/2 or 7/29. I'll go with 7/29.

But we wouldn't. I have zero doubts in my mind that Getzlaf and Perry will play anywhere but Anaheim. Ryan on the other hand, I could definitely see him going somewhere where he'd be the leading scorer on the team.

I don't think Murray will cave and go for a 2 year deal. And if for some reason he did, it would be for around 4 million tops. Anaheim wants a 5 year deal and Bobby wants a 3 year deal. It just seems inevitable that we'll see a 4 year deal around 5 million.

The money isn't really as much of an issue as the amount of years.
Ryan wants 3
Ducks want 4-5

Heck I would be willing to offer him 1 year at $5M.

If Ryan wants a short term contract so he can continue to put up better numbers and justify a higher salary, then let him prove it. If he can put up 40+ goals next season, then he should be paid as such. I don't mind paying him more than Getzlaf and Perry if he earns it (knowing that especially Getzlaf is in line for a big raise in 3 years). However, if he fails to get 30 goals for some reason (injury, poor performance, etc), then he won't likely get the money he seeks.

I'm sure Ryan won't take his position to the extreme for the sake of a multiyear guarantee in case he gets hurt, but come on. If he believes in himself, then the best way to go is to take a short deal, and go to arbitration next season if Murray won't pay what Ryan and his agent believes is the market rate.

This scenario won't likely happen, so Murray should stick to his 4 year and 5 year offers, and let Bobby work on his suntan some more.

Is it illegal to talk about future contracts (something along the lines of tampering)? Talk about a 2 year deal with Ryan and then re-evaluate how much he's worth then with at least a 2 year deal again. That way he gets more money sooner but isn't a RFA the same year Getz and Perry's contract ends. The Ducks essentially get a 4 year deal out of this, Ryan gets a bigger contract (assuming he earns it) sooner as well.

You can always talk about new contracts, but new contracts can't be signed until the last year of the existing contract takes place.

The Ducks would be really stupid to offer a 1-year deal if that was the case. So I'm going to go with no. It will be a 2 year minimum 4 year maximum deal.

I wonder what people think would be a fair 1-year rate?

Possibly 4.5 million (what Getzlaf and Perry earned in the first year of their contracts)?

Because Ryan might be willing to settle for less for 1 year, since it means he would be eligible for arbitration next year. See Wisniewski, James.

The Ducks might not like it, but it might be a way for them to keep the dollars down for a year (little chance he accepts 4.5 million otherwise).


Just think of Paul Kariya and how he always wanted 1 or 2 year contracts.
