All quiet on the Ryan front
TheFourthPeriod.com

With a lot of attention placed on Rick Nash's future in Columbus, lost in all the discussions has been Anaheim Ducks sniper Bobby Ryan.

Ryan, 25, has expressed his desire to be traded after it has been widely reported that the Ducks had been shopping him for some time.

Ducks GM Bob Murray has had several conversations with other teams, including the Philadelphia Flyers, Carolina Hurricanes and New York Rangers, among other clubs, but a trade does not appear to be imminent.

The Ducks are hoping to acquire a second-line center as part of a package for Ryan, who has three-years left on his contract with an annual salary cap hit of $5.1 million.

While the Ducks would want to obtain a center in a deal, it isn't a prerequisite in getting a deal completed. A source close to the team told TFP the Ducks are looking to bolster their secondary-scoring.

In all 82 games with the Ducks this past season, the native of Cherry Hill, NJ, tallied 31 goals and 26 assists for 57 points.

The Toronto Maple Leafs, Pittsburgh Penguins, Montreal Canadiens, Boston Bruins, Florida Panthers and San Jose Sharks have also inquired about Ryan's availability.
