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

i guess forget the bobby ryan suggestion unless we actually give away filppula which i doubt we'd do and even then i doubt itll be enough for them

we might have to take risks and trade for guys like chris stewart (which would require a 3rd team) who underachieved but have potential to rebound


Why wouldn't we trade Filpulla for Ryan ... Ryan > Filppula it's a automatic upgrade for a player. Filppula has nothing more to offer us then what we've all ready seen from him. Trade him, pick up Doan and Suter and end of story!

Eklund blocked me on twitter this morning for calling him out about adding stuff to a tweet that Darren Dreger made. So I guess I have to live without his crazy speculations

Eklund now believes that Chicago is a contender for Parise? :blink:


He hadn't said anything for awhile, so he figured he'd post that. lol

I just read on Twitter from multiple sources that Philly put in the biggest offers on both the big names so if it is strictly about money they will both be in the orange and black.


Philly has 3 big RFA forwards who will have to be signed in the summer of 2014. Giroux, Schenn and Couturier are only signed until next season and will be in line for big raises.

Voracek is an RFA this summer while Hartnel and Timmonen are UFAs next summer.

And to top it off they can't get rid of Pronger's massive contract (ends in the summer of 2017) because he signed after his 35th birthday and all signs are pointing towards his retirement.

Oh, and we have no idea what the cap will be when the new CBA is signed this summer/fall. The moment that CBA is signed the cap will likely fall (it's already climbed so high that the minimum cap number is now higher than the post-lockout maximum). The real shame is that the Blackhawks were able to so skillfully dump their terrible signings a few years ago (a lone to a European team here, trade to Florida there and poof their stupid FA choices were erased). GMs no longer seem to worry much about throwing contracts with huge term around. The best solution to this issue is for the minimum cap values to drop significantly so garbage teams don't take terrible contracts in trades just to reach the floor.

end of story lol ya easier said than done , realistically shane doan will return to phoenix and why give up on filppula when he's finally breaking out? maybe next year he can get 70-80 pts

And like i said i HIGHLY doubt filppula for ryan would get it done , filppula is a ufa next year it would have to be filppula nyquist +

The big problem with that line of reasoning is that we don't have a centre prospect in the AHL that's showing himself to be a lock as an NHL player. The hope is that Jarnkrok is that guy but it's hard to gamble on a kid you haven't even seen play a season in the AHL.

According to Pucking Sports on Twitter, Parise is down to the Wild & Pens. Take it for what it's worth.

I have a feeling this won't be wrapped up today.

I wouldn't be surprised if Parise signs with the Pens. I'll be saddened but not surprised. "Hey, wanna play on Crosby's wing?" is a pretty strong sales pitch to an elite winger who went to the same hockey prep school as Sid.

this is all for show everybody knows after crosby banged parise and his whole family at game 3 of the finals he's going to pittsburgh .... F him


if we get suter trade quincey.abdelkader and unfortunetly nyquist for bobby ryan , hes got a more cap friendly hit than nash and less term


The Ducks want a second-line center and some other pieces in exchange for Ryan.

It's worth noting that the twitter feed in question is a Minny sports feed.

Take it for what it's worth, but Ansar Khan posted the following...

Wings' Ken Holland said this afternoon he hasn't heard yet re: Suter/Parise. Joked "I know what you know by (reading) tweets.''


This might be a bit of wishful thinking, but that does not sound like the kind of thing Holland would say if he were informed that Parise is only considering MIN/PIT/NJ.

Again, nothing official, so a grain of salt (or two) is highly recommended.

Parise's Wiki page is pretty funny. Being edited constantly.
