If you look hard enough, I’m sure you can find 29 team blogs this week theorizing why it’s a good idea for a phone call to be made about Bobby Ryan. I’ve read a few such pieces, and the worst ones are those that actually think he’s an untouchable and too good a player for Anaheim to give up.
This is the same organization that last night hired the guy who oversaw the repeated failures of the biggest group of underachievers that the league has seen in quite some time. Who says they aren’t capable of dealing a 24-year old forward who scored 100 goals over the past three seasons?
Word on the street is that the wheels are already in motion. Ryan hasn’t been as effective this season and is only on pace for 24 goals. We in Pegulaville can only hope for such a swoon to overcome Ville Leino.

I'm not a big fan of rumors and you all know that. But it seems like everywhere I turn tonight, I'm seeing more and more connections between the New York Rangers and Anaheim Ducks forward Bobby Ryan. Ryan, 24, has gotten off to a rough start this season, only recording eleven points in 24 games, so it is rumored that he is a player the Ducks currently have on their trading...
Been a crazy 18 hours.
Here is the latest, short version.
Many teams are in on Bobby Ryan, as is to be expected. It is almost unheard of that a young player at this talent level is believed to be available. This is simply a money issue in Anaheim, not a case of Anaheim "giving up on Ryan" a source confirms.
The Leafs, Sabres, Bruins, Canes, Hawks, Blues,...
Short answer here: Yes, GM Paul Holmgren should absolutely attempt to acquire Bobby Ryan. The Flyers need defense more than offense, but Ryan is good enough that he's worth going for. There isn't an excess of top-tier defensemen out on the trade block, and Philadelphia has a few good young prospects that could benefit from getting experience now. Erik Gustafsson, Marc Andre...
Multiple sources are telling me that a Bobby Ryan trade is all but definite now. One source in W. Ontario tells me the 4 teams 'currently' involved as the Flyers, Rangers, Carolina, and the Islanders.

The hockey world was getting all excited about the possibility that Anaheim forward Bobby Ryan was on the trade block.
The Ducks were floundering and something had to give. As a much-coveted asset, Ryan could fetch an awesome return in a trade.
What team couldn't use a proven goal scorer with a robust playing style?
Anaheim coach Randy Carlyle relegated Ryan to his third line...
As per Nick Kypreos, the Anaheim Ducks are shopping star RW Bobby Ryan. Ryan is an elite talent and he is incredibly young, just 24 years old. The former second overall pick in 2005 has had a bit of a rough go of it to start the year, with “just” 11 points (7-4-11) in 23 games thus far. That is a far cry from his usual output of about 35-30-65, but it still puts him on pace for...

It took just 67 hours for Bruce Boudreau to find another coaching gig.
Sure, it may be 2,600 miles out west, which may be the best change of scenery for the veteran bench boss.
Bruce Boudreau, shown in this file photo, was named the new bench boss of the Anaheim Ducks this morning.
There’s no excuses, no distractions, and no scapegoats.
Who does Boudreau have to utilize...
