On the Duck Pond:
On the first day of free agency, the Ducks were at the forefront of things. Not for who they picked up, but rather for whom they traded.
Forward Bobby Ryan, long time trade rumour fodder, was sent to the Ottawa Senators. In exchange, Anaheim received right wing Jakob Silfverberg, prospect Stefan Noesen, also a right winger, and a 2014 first-round pick.
Ryan, who was chosen second overall behind Sidney Crosby in the 2005 entry draft, still has two years left on his five year $25.5 million contract. His salary cap hit of $5.1 million will give Anaheim some relief, as they have signed Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry to large contract extensions that were helping to max out the Ducks budget.
Ryan tweeted his response to the trade on Friday afternoon: "Ottawa .... I'm coming in hot."
He has scored 30-plus goals in each of the previous four seasons before the shortened 2012-13 lockout season, when he had 11 goals and 30 points in 46 games for the Duck...

Anaheim Ducks' winger Bobby Ryan was dealt to the Ottawa Senators on Friday for Jakob Silfverberg, Stefan Noesen, and a 2014 1st-round pick. Bobby was my second favorite Duck and second favorite hockey player behind Ryan Getzlaf, and I'm sad to see him go.Though I wish Bobby was still skating in Anaheim, at least the Ducks got a really nice package back from the Sens. Best of luck, Bobby.

Friday afternoon saw one of the more active NHL free agency debuts in recent memory, with massive amounts of money committed to players both deserving and undeserving. NHL legends switched teams. Young players were traded. To recap, we will take a look at some of the best and worst signings of the day.
Some teams were not judicious with...
Now there’s a Daniel Alfredsson replacement. Earlier in the day, the Ottawa Senators learned that their long-time captain, Daniel Alfredsson, had signed with the Detroit Red Wings. They then signed winger Clarke MacArthur to “replace” Alfredsson. Well, now we know who the real replacement is as the Ottawa Senators make another splash, this time via trade, as they acquire [...]
The Senators didn’t lack appreciation for Alfredsson. Go to ottawasenators.com and the first thing you see is a “Thank you” page, very classy considering the circumstances. But, it shows how careful you have to be. For just one moment, they slipped. It will never be the same.
After the Bobby Ryan trade, you can debate if the Senators or the Red Wings are the truer contender...
