When it was first reported (by the Orange Country Register) that the Anaheim Ducks were “possibly shopping a top player,” several Preds bloggers got into some friendly banter about what it would take to bring Bobby Ryan to Music City.
Then, tonight, when Rogers Sportsnet’s Darren Millard tweeted that it was, in fact, Ryan who was being shopped, it started to put that friendly banter into perspective.
Along with Preds bloggers James Nelson of Preds Odd Man Rush, Ryan Porth of Smashville 24/7 and Seth Lake of Hockey’s Future, some pretty interesting trade scenarios came up.
While I’ll let them tell you their ideas, my original proposal was Ryan Ellis, Colin Wilson, Teemu Laakso and a first round pick for Ryan. Let me explain why I think it’s realistic and what each team would get out of the deal.
WHY THE PREDS WOULD DO IT
Wilson has really turned it around. Long gone seem to be the days of Head Coach Barry Trotz’s dog house and the continuous frustration that was readily ...

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.
Others could always enter and drop off..
There is reason to believe the Flyers could land him. He grew up in the area, played for the Little Flyers Youth Hockey team...

The hottest topic locally in the blog world revolves around the potential availability of the Ducks' Bobby Ryan via trade. Robby Stanley asks if the Predators should be interested in Bobby Ryan. Seth Lake has extensive discussion on the topic at On The Forecheck as does Jeremy Gover at Section 303. Ryan Porth has a round-table discussion and The Odd Man Rush comes off a three month hiatu...
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...
When the Nashville Predators hired Kirk Muller this summer to be the bench boss with AHL affiliate Milwaukee Admirals, they knew he probably wasn’t going to be around for long. Before then, Muller was a hot coaching candidate in the NHL after spending time behind Montreal’s bench as an assistant. He even interviewed for three head coaching jobs (Ottawa, Minnesota and Dallas...
