Though it has repeatedly been reported that GM Glen Sather considers Derek Stepan “untouchable,” that hasn’t stopped many from debating whether he should be included in trade offers for superstars like Rick Nash and Bobby Ryan.
Anaheim is specifically seeking a #2 center-man as part of a package for Ryan and has almost certainly requested Stepan from the Rangers (if the Ducks considered Artem Anisimov or Brandon Dubinsky to be suitable second-line pivots, it’s very likely that Ryan would already be a Blueshirt).
So should Sather actually consider dealing Stepan for Ryan? There is an argument to be made for each side.
On the one hand, Ryan is a proven goal-scorer, a 30-goal guy that is only just entering his prime. Trading youth for Ryan can’t be considered abandoning young talent, because Ryan himself is only 25-years-old and is already one of the league’s true stars. Ryan could be a terrific second scoring option after Marian Gaborik and could give New York an enviable array of...

A couple of weeks ago, in the midst of the Ryan Nash // Ottawa rumors, I penned a blog post about why another name -- specifically Bobby Ryan of the Anaheim Ducks -- was a far better fit for the Ottawa Senators organization.
Young. Incredibly gifted. Top-six forward with thirty-plus goal potential -- he's shown as much in four consecutive seasons now. In fact, the only hurdle...

The camp goes from July 10-14. July 14 is open to the public.
Also on the list is Simon Despres, and Scott...
Thomas Paine once said, âThese are the times that try men's souls." A quote that has more historic relevance then anything to do with hockey. If you're Bobby Ryan or Ryan Getzlaf that quote may have a different meaning to you these days.
Ryan's days are numbered and the list of teams wanting to acquire the four time 30-goal scorer continues to increase....
Playing GMMG For A Day
While Vancouver Canucks fans patiently wait out a trade for goalie Roberto Luongo, I thought it would be fun to play the I’m Mike Gillis game again.
This time instead of eating as many lobster stuffed tacos as I can and drinking enough red wine to fill a bath tub, I’m going to focus on a trade. The focus of that trade is Bobby Ryan.
I’ll be honest, I’m...
With the Sabres now out of the chase for Bobby Ryan, they have moved on to a new main team to try and improve their roster.
That main team, as some on twitter may have already guessed, is the Colorado Avalanche. The player involved, Paul Stastny.
Stastny has been a player linked in trade rumors to the Sabres for the past year or so now dating back to the 2011 trade deadline when...
