Bobby Ryan has a long history of being rumored to the Rangers.
Bobby Ryan has a long history of being rumored to the Rangers.
If a 30-goal scorer is on the trade market, you would think Lou Lamoriello and the Devils would be interested. Todd Cordell of Hockey Buzz posed the question, speculated about Anaheim's asking price and then answered it rather definitively.
His points per game average was down a bit from his standards this season but he still had more even strength goals and points than every player on the Devils, so clearly he'd be a welcome addition.
Ryan said ?I gotta be honest with you. At this point, I don?t care. Move me ? because it?s just tough going to the rink every day knowing that if something goes wrong, you?re going to be the guy moved.?
Today, Ryan spoke with the OC Register's Eric Stephens about those comments and said that he regretted making them right after and that he has not asked to be traded by the Ducks.
The Penguins were a team that was mentioned as interested in Ryan back in early July.

He writes that the Flyers could look to add Ryan to counter the Rangers move for Rick Nash.

Haggerty writes that most trade talks with the Bruins have centered around teams wanting Milan Lucic and/or Dougie Hamilton, two guys the Bruins don't want to move.
He writes, "If and when the Ducks ready to accept Krejci and a draft pick in return for one of the best right wings in the NHL then you?ll see the Bruins move swiftly to secure his services and then slide Tyler Seguin into his rightful spot at center."
Garrioch writes that Anaheim is looking for a second line center and a young defenseman to replace Justin Schultz who wouldn't sign with the team.
Other teams interested in Ryan are believed to be the Flyers, Leafs, Penguins, Red Wings and Lightning.
Brooks says that since the Rangers seem unwilling to include Stepan in any proposals, it seems like it's "Nash or no one at the moment."
Buffalo would reportedly send Derick Roy to Anaheim in a package for Ryan.
LeBrun says that Zach Parise is true to his word and won't sign with the Rangers.
Ryan said yesterday that he was ready to move on from Anaheim since he thinks he hasn't been treated fairly.
Larry Brooks writes in the NY Post that the Rangers won't move Derek Stepan to get Bobby Ryan.
?I take things personally,. Anaheim to me has been a team over the past year that really has shown me nothing to prove that they want me here, unfortunately. Obviously, it's not the ideal situation. When you get drafted, you want to win championships with that team and every time they look to add a piece to the puzzle, I'm the piece going the other way.
?I gotta be honest with you. At this point, I don't care. Move me ... because it's just tough going to the rink every day knowing that if something goes wrong, you're going to be the guy moved.?
Brooks notes that the Ducks aren't interested in Brandon Dubinsky and while they would have interest in Derek Stepan, the Rangers may not like having Artem Anisimov or Brandon Dubinsky as the second line center.
He writes that the Rangers probably can't acquire Ryan unless they relent and move some of their younger players. Brooks also notes that the Rangers won't acquire Rick Nash unless Columbus GM Scott Howson lowers his demands.
LeBrun says that any deal with the Flyers for Ryan would need to include 20-year-old center Brayden Schenn.
He notes that the Flyers don't want to move Schenn and instead would rather move James vanRiemsdyk.
Bobby Ryan and Rick Nash linked. Same teams in on both, so, if one goes, the other may move soon after.11:55AM: Dreger tweets, "Nash's agent, Joe Resnick will meet with CBJ gm Scott Howson this afternoon. Have to think he encourages a trade."

12:25PM: Richard: Now that Bobby Ryan is available again, I think the Rangers should stop looking at Rick Nash and make a move for Ryan. He is younger and cheaper and would probably cost less. What do you think the Rangers will offer to get him?
Adam: Well, Bob McKenzie said yesterday, "If ANA moves Ryan I suspect it would be for two or three building block pieces that would increase organizational depth but not payroll.? You would figure that since the Ducks are losing Justin Schultz, they will want Tim Erixon or Michael Del Zotto as part of a deal. I am not sure that Brandon Dubinsky is a fit if Anaheim is looking to shed some payroll, and if that is the case, they will want guys like Carl Hagelin and Derek Stepan who are cheap.
5:36PM: McKenzie adds: "That doesn't mean Bobby Ryan is sure to be moved. It does means ANA's phone will be/has been ringing and they will be keenly listening.

Anaheim Ducks with five, count 'em, five spots reserved for scouts at tonight's Rangers-Blackhawks game.Bobby Ryan is believed to be OFF the market with the Ducks closing in on the playoff race. Teemu Selanne has said that he doesn't want to be traded.

In the cast of the Maple Leafs, Garrioch writes that it would cost prospects Nazem Kadri and Joe Colborne, along with the picks, to get one of those players.
As per @helenenothelen, ANA GM says Selanne and Koivu are only two untouchables on Ducks. Which means he'll listen on Getzlaf, Perry, Ryan.More on this in the LA Times Damien Cox writes in the Toronto Star that Ryan Getzlaf would be perfect for the Leafs.

He says that the Ducks never established which players they wanted for Ryan, but Glen Sather may have set parameters of which players he would likely move.
Brooks says that if Ryan is put back on the market and the cost is two roster players, a prospect and a draft pick "the Rangers will not be acquiring him."
Custance quotes a GM as saying, "Are they trading him? Nobody has contacted me."
Pierre LeBrun has said that the Ducks were only listening to offers while earlier reports suggested that they were shopping him.
Boomer loves the Rangers and broke the Avery coming back story.
I hate the idea of moving Del Zotto since I think he is gonna be a really good offensive defensemen, and since the Ducks have Cam Fowler, they may not even be interested in him.
With the Ducks being one of the worst teams in the NHL, it seems like changes are going to be coming to the Ducks. Rumors have been swirling that Bobby Ryan could be on the move. The New Jersey native still have 5 years left on his deal at $5.1 million a year. The Devils have $3.1 million left in cap space so if they were to make a move they would need to move at least $2 million.
Now keep in mind this is NOT fact in any way. Its merely just my opinion.
Pierre LeBrun says at ESPN.com that Bobby Ryan isn't necessarily being shopped but teams are calling the Ducks about him. He doesn't think that a deal is imminent though. He also says that a deal would need to include a young forward, a young defenseman and a high draft pick.
When asked by the Orange County Register about possibly being traded, Ryan responded "I wouldn't be surprised. That's all I'll say about that."
Brooks also quotes someone familiar with the situation as saying that the Rangers have a lot of assets.
In regards to what the Ducks may be looking for in exchange for Ryan, Brooks says "a package of young, cap-friendly players"
According to multiple reports including Brooks himself and Helene Elliott of the LA Times, no deal has been struck
It was a little hard to believe when it was sent out but not that unforeseen. Ryan getting more than Ryan Getzlaf didn't seem right though
The Ducks have offered two contracts, one for four years and one for five, that Ryan has turned down.
He also said that he isn't thinking of holding out.
Anaheim GM Bob Murray says that he is going to take a different approach with Ryan as training camp comes closer.
....This sort of confirms what had been speculated and written about before. Ryan would hit free agency the same time as Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry which would be bad news for the Ducks, especially as they will all be making $5 million or over this season, pending that Ryan signs, and a raise would be in order for their next contract. Then again, who knows what happens with the new CBA and salaries then.
Ryan is currently a restricted free agent.
...It at least appears that the Rangers and Marc Staal are talking, just far apart. But no discussions at all, like in this case, that could be a little frightening. Of course that could all change tomorrow, but if they are so far apart on something, Ryan could end up as a holdout.
Ryan is a restricted free agent who has reportedly turned down a deal of five years at $5 million per season.
Custance says that the sticking point is the amount of years for the contract,as the Ducks don't want their other top players, Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry, to hit free agency as the same time as Ryan.
Ryan has turned down a five-year offer for $5 million per season and has said he doesn't think he should be paid more than the team's stars, Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry, who make $5.3 million per season.
Youngman wonders what the Ducks would do if?the LA Kings were to sign Ryan to an offer sheet of over $5 million per season.
Ryan has scored 30 goals the last two seasons, his first two in the NHL. His cap hit previously, via CG, was $1.92 million.
...If Ryan hits July 1st, which I think is unlikely, there will literally be 29 teams who will be interested in his services. I think the Ducks are waiting to see what happens with Scott Niedermayer and Teemu Selanne and figure out a deal for Ryan from there.
