With all of the proposed deals popping up in all of the stories and FanPosts regarding Bobby (and other players), I decided now would be a good opportunity to make a FanPost dedicated just for Bobby Ryan deals. I know Robby might hate this thread, but at least this way nothing is overlooked and everything is centralized.
My proposed trade is below:
To New York:
Bobby Ryan - Left Wing, $5.1M cap hit, locked up through 2014-2015
Late Round Pick
Dan Girardi - Defence, $3.325M cap hit, locked up through 2013-2014
Brian Boyle - Centre, $1.7M cap hit, locked up through 2013-2014
Brandon Prust - Winger, $800K cap hit, Unrestricted at season's end
This would be a good deal for both teams as Anaheim fills a few much needed vacancies in a third-line checking centre (who is also 6'7), a checking winger who can play in penalty kill situations and a bruising defenseman who can log serious minutes. Although now may not be the time to propose this deal to New York, as Girardi logs all of Staal's minutes while he is injured, if the Ducks continue this trend of losing and a major shake-up is needed, I think this trade helps both teams.
For New York, they get a tier-one winger to play with Richards. As well - and as I mentioned in another post - Bobby plays closer to his home-state of New Jersey, he plays with a marquee centre, and he plays for a coach that gets the most out of his players.
*EDIT: I have included cap numbers courtesy of capgeek.com
Cap number summary: the Ducks take on an additional $725,000 of salary this year, and have the option to re-sign Brandon Prust. If Prust is not re-signed, the Ducks save an average of $75,000 through 2013-2014 by shedding Ryan's contract.
