To trade Bobby Ryan, the Ducks want a few pieces, including a 2nd line center.

…got to wonder if Dubinsky or Anisimov are considered 2nd line centers by the Ducks. I would package either one of them with a couple of prospects (Miller and Thomas?) in a second for Ryan.
…if Stepan is the guy the Ducks are looking at. I think I’d still do it if I was Sather but maybe not include Miller.
Larry Brooks at the New York Post feels that the Rangers won’t include Stepan in a package for Ryan and because of that they have no chance of getting him.
…i think they would include him if they have to. But that’s just my opinion.
Meanwhile, Dmitry Chesnokov at Puck Daddy puts to rest any rumors that Ruslan Fedotenko will bolt to the KHL.
…wouldn’t mind bringing Feds back on another one-year contract. He was once again money in the playoffs this year.
