Add another name to the ever-churning trade rumor mill. TSN’s Bob McKenzie reports that Anaheim GM Bob Murray has been receiving numerous calls regarding 25-year-old left wing Bobby Ryan.
You’ll recall that Ryan was in the thick of swirling trade winds in November, but the firing of coach Randy Carlyle quashed those discussions for the 2011-2012 season.
But now McKenzie reports that Murray is again at least willing to discuss Ryan’s availability, even if Anaheim isn’t actively shopping him.
Make no mistake; the Ducks aren’t in a position where they must dump Ryan quickly as Columbus is with Rick Nash. However, it does make sense for Murray to consider trade offers for a couple of reasons:
Murray is obviously aware of the absurd proposals being bandied about as potential returns for Nash. No team has yet pulled the trigger on a deal because of Blue Jackets GM Scott Howson’s ridiculous demands, but the fact that packages like Joe Pavelski and Ryan Clowe from San Jose are even bei...

In the on-again, off-again case of the Anaheim Ducks' Bobby Ryan, it appears he's on again -- the trading block, that is. TSN's Bob McKenzie reported Ryan is available via trade but isn't necessarily a lock Ryan will be dealt. The young, talented forward was pulled off the market briefly when coach Randy Carlyle was fired. Ryan, 25, has four consecutive seasons...
via TSN, It appears that Anaheim Ducks forward Bobby Ryan could once again be on the trade market.
TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie tweeted on Tuesday that Ryan may be available again after he was taken off the market after the departure of former Ducks head coach Randy Carlyle.
Ryan’s name was mentioned in trade rumours at several points last season.
The 25-year-old scored 31...

TSN's Bob McKenzie just let off this bombshell on Twitter a few minutes ago:
Hearing ANA's Bobby Ryan is "available" again after being taken off trade market after Randy Carlyle's Duck departure.
Forget Rick Nash and the abusive overpayment for his services through picks, prospects, and developed talent. Forget...
There have been a lot of rumors talking about Bobby Ryan becoming available again and that the Sabres may be one of the front-runners in acquiring him. Here's one from Hockey Insider on Twitter:
MAJOR UPDATE: The #Sabres are the front runners for landing Bobby Ryan of the #NHLDucks. Many teams other than Buffalo also interested.â Hockeyy Insiderr (@HockeyyInsiderr) June...
On the same day that Pierre LeBrun reported that the Flyers continue to "aggressively pursue" a trade for Columbus winger Rick Nash, Bob McKenzie reported that the Anaheim Ducks are once again willing to listen to trade offers for Bobby Ryan after temporarily putting a hold on any such discussions when Bruce Boudreau replaced Randy Carlyle as coach last December.
So I'm driving home from the office on Tuesday afternoon, and I hear James Cybulski interviewing Bob McKenzie on TSN 1050. The subject of trade Bobby Ryan "chatter" percolated for a few moments between the host and his guest. Shortly after that interview, the Twittersphere blew up with "Bobby Ryan Is Being Traded Rumours".
Slow down folks. Bobby Ryan, it...

Amongst this evening’s Red Wings-related news:
• First and foremost, no. Just no. Bobby Ryan would be too expensive and the Wings are worried about adding via free agency, not surrendering assets in a trade.
• The most interesting scuttlebutt of directly Red Wings-related note comes from the Windsor Star’s Bob Duff’s Twitter account...

What a relief it must have been for Max Pacioretty to accept the Bill Masterton Award, to not only move on from a devastating injury that changed his life forever, but to also push past the discussion of his comeback.
Pacioretty guaranteed media members last summer that he'd return better than ever, and though that was hard to believe at the time, it was proven true in nearly...
Hey remember that time when Milan Lucic went to play the puck and Ryan Miller had a brainfart and decided to try to play the puck as well and well.. this happened?And then after the game Ryan Miller called Milan Lucic a "piece of ****." Then after that giant circus reports came out that Miller had a concussion only for later reports -- after Lucic was exonerated of all...
from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN, • Bobby Ryan’s name has resurfaced in trade talks and one team that has some interest is the Philadelphia Flyers. This is nothing new. They’ve like the player for a long time.
The Anaheim Ducks aren’t shopping Ryan as much as teams are calling on him, circling back to them after he was out there for a while last November. ...
• The speculation...

Welcome to the second installment of “If I were the GM.” Previously we covered the potential signing of free agent LW Ray Whitney in an effort to boost the Rangers offense.

from Luke DeCock of the News & Observer, The big names are coming fast and furious now: Rick Nash, Bobby Ryan, maybe even Jordan Staal.
For years, the Carolina Hurricanes sat in the corner and watched as NHL stars changed addresses, never willing to sit at the high-limit table. They’re sitting there now with a stack of chips, ready to make a play. They’re in the game, and...
