If you haven’t heard about these Bobby Ryan rumors, you haven’t A) checked recently! or B) been alive for the last 2 years.


According to Nick Kypreos of Sportsnet, Ducks General Manager Bob Murray met with Ryan today and told him he’s off the trade market. This comes a day after coach Randy Carlyle was fired and replaced by former Caps coach Bruce Boudreau.

On Tuesday, the 24-year-old Ryan spoke with Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register about the increased chatter that continued to swirl around his name and said that he “wouldn’t be surprised” if he was the player sent packing. Other players rumored were Ryan Getzlaf and Jonas Hiller.

Ryan is a three-time 30-goal scorer who would be a wonderful addition to any team. Toronto, New York and Buffalo were the teams that seemed most interested, but in reality, all 29 teams have interest in him. The New York Post reported the New York Rangers were among the many teams that inquired about Ryan’s availability. One rumor that made the rounds was a potential blockbuster brought forward by Bucky Gleason of the the Buffalo News that would involve goaltender Sabres netminder Ryan Miller

The team has only 7 wins this season, so something had to be done. The coach was let go, but the team remains the same. Would trading Bobby Ryan be the answer? We can’t answer that just yet.

About The Author

Steven took a different route towards his hockey interests. Starting out as a big Habs fan, he started to gravitate towards the more obscure levels of hockey, such as the low level tournaments in Asia, strange club matches between teams most people in North America can’t pronounce, and even some 3am contests between Bulgaria and New Zealand. Aside from his love for strange hockey events, Steven occasionally acts as a mediocre ball hockey goalie following a failed attempt at making it to the NHL as a fourth line house league grinder. Beyond hockey, Steven is an avid racing fan and loves to chat about NASCAR, F1, Indycar, you name it. Oh, and don’t get him started on music. That is, unless you want the whole history of metal and a guitar lesson. Currently, Steven is a credentialed media member with the Mississauga Steelheads of the OHL, as well as with the Oakville Blades of the OJHL. Steven has also hosted the television show "The Hockey House" on TVCogeco in Ontario, as well as a segment under the same with on LeafsTV in Toronto. Home page:
