Bobby Ryan will not play for the wings. I heard he hates Detroit.... lol


This is not true. His family used to live in metro Detroit for a couple years. Ryan would definitely consider returning home. He has some friends here and visits at least once a summer.

Ryan said this about Anaheim, "Anaheim to me has been a team over the past year that really has shown me nothing to prove that they want me here, unfortunately. Obviously, it's not the ideal situation. When you get drafted, you want to win championships with that team and every time they look to add a piece to the puzzle, I'm the piece going the other way."

I haven't heard if Detroit has inquired about him though.

Detroit has inquired, but so has 28 other teams I imagine...to what extent Detroit is interested remains to be seen. I like that tidbit about his family living here, I don't believe he played for the USA development program, but that doesn't mean he hasn't live here before. If he does indeed have some close friends that still live here, then it would maybe excite him a bit if he got traded here... I just wish Holland would make this deal...I just wish I knew exactly what Anaheim was asking for outside of Filppula...again, its just a long waiting game of nervousness and anxiousness! I am about 2% sure a trade will happen...which is not sure at all! :D

He actually went to Pinckney High School in the 2002-2003 school year. Keeping away from his dad if I remember correctly.

This is a very in depth story, but no mention of Michigan....not that I am doubting, but I though maybe I could find it somewhere...

http://sports.espn.g...tory?id=3782270

If anyone can find anything referring to Bobby Ryan living in Michigan, please let me know, I want to see it...

Hah, I say that because that was my high school. He was in my "Integrated Science" class when I was a freshman. He would always tell me about how good he was at hockey and how he knew Bobby Clarke. Never believed him until I saw that he was drafted 2nd overall after Crosby. He was still Bobby Stevenson then; at least that is what he went by.

He even asked me to spy on his red head girlfriend for him. He was a goofy guy.

Maybe all of us fans can pool up some cash to make an offer for Ryan before he's gone since our GM won't do it...

I know that sadly it doesn't work like that, wishful thinking on my part.

Remember - having Ryan would, I have to think, only help our chances re: landing Perry and/or Getzlaff.

Imagine a top-6 with Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Ryan, Getzlaff/Perry, and Doan. :cheesy:

even before Nash was off the table, I thought this was the better way to go via trade... I just don't see the Ducks dealing with us either and if they do, probably asking for too much... if he's an option though, I would like to see a strong push for Ryan

All I have to say about Holland and our off-season:

Here in this thread

Here in this one as well

Here in this one too

and finally

Here


Holland is a damn good GM. period.

No more "strong push"ing, IMO. No more kicking tires, helluva offers, trying really hard, pricing out, safety zoning.

Nike. Just do it.
