from the Courier Post, Through a phone conversation a night earlier with his agent, Don Meehan, plus non-stopping texts from family and friends forwarding the latest, Ryan learned that the Flyers are among four teams involved in trade talks with the Ducks.
Frustrated with Ducks management, the 25-year-old left wing suggested he’s up for a trade anywhere and that the Flyers would be his first choice.
“I heard Anaheim was a little overwhelmed with offers and they only took four seriously, but none of the teams were mentioned to me other than Philly,” Ryan said. “Everybody wants to play in your hometown, but it would be tough because a lot of expectations come when you’re put into a situation like that. For me, if I’m moved, Philadelphia would be a very ideal and comfortable place for me.”
Ryan is frustrated because he doesn’t feel Ducks management appreciates his 30-plus goals over each of his first four NHL seasons.
