Ryan confident he'll remain a Duck

Ducks sniper Bobby Ryan was in high demand this season when the team was struggling and could have been traded to another team, the Orange County Register reports.

According to the paper, Ryan, who finished his fourth-straight 30-goal season, could still be used as trade bait in order for the Ducks to improve their defense and deepen their roster.

However, Ryan seems confident he'll be staying in Anaheim this off-season, much more so than he was in November, when trade rumors were flying all over the map.

"Things change obviously," he told the Register. "I haven't been given any direction as to why I wouldn't. As far as I'm concerned, I'm going away for the summer and coming back a Duck."

Meanwhile, the Ducks are expected to let the likes of forwards Jason Blake, Niklas Hagman and Rod Pelley, and goalie Dan Ellis walk as unrestricted free agents this July, while the team plans on re-signing center Saku Koivu.

Teemu Selanne will dictate his own fate, though the Ducks want him back next season, and it's uncertain if the team will attempt to re-sign tough guys George Parros and Sheldon Brookbank.
