Nick Kypreos at Sportsnet reports that Ducks GM Bob Murray has assured Bobby Ryan he is off the trade market today. Kypreos was also told Ryan's desire to be moved is no longer an issue....wonder what Kypreos means by today. What about tomorrow?...in all seriousness, while Ryan is an elite talent, the Rangers would have had to give up way too much and I really think it would have messed with the team's current chemistry. Sometimes the best moves are the ones you don't make.Remember to follow me on Twitter & Facebook or e-mail me at nyrfan94@yahoo.com.
