Also on the list is Simon Despres, and Scott Harrington.
Have to wonder if those two are names that have come up in trade talks at all.
Sources say Ducks GM Bob Murray isn’t sure what he’s going to do with Ryan. The organization wasn’t pleased with public comments he made last month, indicating the best move for both sides is a trade.Sources say the Philadelphia Flyers, Toronto Maple Leafs, Pittsburgh Penguins, Detroit Red Wings, Tampa Bay Lightning and Senators are amongst a group of teams that will make a pitch for Ryan. The Ducks may also have to clear salary off the deck to sign Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry.
We would take Bobby Ryan over Rick Trash all day. Ryan makes less, and is probably a better player.
The only problem is the cost. You aren't going to get Ryan for anything less than a prospect, NHL player, and probably a pick. The Pens have prospects, but they have no NHL player really to exchange. Really interested to see how this plays out, because Ryan with Crosby would be 45-50 goals all day.
