Interest rising in Ryan, yet again
TheFourthPeriod.com

Anaheim Ducks sniper Bobby Ryan has been the subject of endless trade rumors over the last few seasons, and his name is expected to pop up in more of them this summer.

According to the Ottawa Sun, Ducks GM Bob Murray has been getting calls on Ryan, but hasn't come across a deal he's willing to consider.

With the salary cap dropping to $64.3 million next season, a number of teams are finding ways to get under the bar.

However, as the Sun reports, the Ducks would like to hold on to Ryan, who has two-years left on his contract.

The Philadelphia Flyers and Ottawa Senators have expressed an interest in Ryan in the past, and could revisit trade talks this summer.

With limited depth up front, the Ducks are expected to make moves to strengthen their top-six unit. It's unclear if Teemu Selanne will retire, and that will factor into any decision the Ducks make surrounding Ryan.

Based on their current roster, the Ducks have between $9 million to $10 million in available salary cap space to play with this summer.

The Ducks are likely to try and re-sign center Saku Koivu for the team's third line, though forwards Matthew Lombardi, Radek Dvorak and David Steckel could walk as unrestricted free agents July 5.
