Bobby Ryan Appears To Be Back In Play: Are The Sabres Interested?
According to TSN's Bob McKenzie, it appears that Anaheim is willing to listen to offers for Bobby Ryan again after trade rumors swirled around him last season.
Ryan has been playing for the Anaheim Ducks for five seasons and has missed only one game in the last three seasons for the team. Last season, Ryan had 31 goals and 57 points in 82 games and would be a good number one center for the Sabres. His cap hit of $5.1 million runs through the 2014-15 season which is easily manageable for the team, especially if they send a player like Derek Roy back in the deal.
When Ryan was being shopped around the first time, the Buffalo Sabres were reported as being interested. How interested you ask? According to a Philadelphia writer, the deal was almost done.
Two NHL insiders had told me last year a Bobby Ryan/Jonas Hiller deal for Ryan Miller was all but done and then the Lucic incident happened.— John Boruk (@JohnBorukCSN) June 19, 2012
Will that deal be enough to get Ryan again or is Miller officially off limits after the incident which resulted in his second concussion in a year. The second question is would you be happy with that deal?
