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.
