the devils best offer would be salvador/henrique and one of merill or urbom + a high draft pick and other teams could beat that offer. i just don't see a fit.

Bobby Ryan isn't going anywhere. Randy Carlyle will be the one leaving Anaheim if anyone is going.

That's not going to solve the Ducks' problem, which existed last year and which was why they were beaten in the playoffs by a team that wasn't particularly good themselves - their depth is just horrendous. Plus you've got Jason Blake (who's been hurt all year), Saku Koivu, Teemu Selanne, and Lubomir Visnovsky all over the age of 35 and possibly ready for retirement.

That's why I think trading Ryan makes sense - if they can get 3 bodies for him, pull the trigger IMO. Something like Berglund, Oshie, and Colaiacavo for Ryan and a prospect would make sense. I don't think the Devils could get him, nor am I sure they should be interested.

The Ducks won the Cup 4 years ago and right now look like a team that might go through an extended rough patch. It's part of what makes the Devils' and Red Wings' runs so remarkable.

kovy is one of my top 3 favorite players.. but i wouldn't mind swapping him straight up for ryan.. he would make such a great fit on the team especially since he can move from center to a wing

I'm ready to put the Devils in past tense now. This isn't 95-00-03 anymore.

We're a little shallow on the left wing, so I say we go for it.

We're deep at LW and shallow at RW that's why Kovy is playing RW and not LW. I also think that Bobby Ryan is a RW not a LW so... :noclue:

Oh I was just joking since I thought Ryan was a LW, but if he's a RW, that would make more sense.

Ryan-Getzlaf-Perry was a line for a while, I thought.

That said, I don't think this is plausible for the Devils now.

That wasn't the point I was making, nor am I ready to do that. My point was that we have seen these teams win Stanley Cups from 2000 on: New Jersey, Colorado, Detroit, Tampa Bay, Carolina, Anaheim, Pittsburgh, Chicago, Boston. Colorado, Tampa Bay, and Carolina already fell on hard times. Anaheim is getting there. Throw in Ottawa, Dallas, and Toronto, teams that were really good around 2000 who've seen time in the dumps since then. It's really, really hard to stay good in this league.

Ryan's a LW, or at least he was when he was lighting it up with Perry and Getzlaf.

Ah..well if he could successfully make the shift to RW I think he'd be a solid acquisition.

Not at the cost of the depth the Devils have left, though. Doesn't seem plausible.
