Freshly Squeezed Rumour.
O.k., you knew this one had to be coming.
Yes, I have now had 3 unsolicited tips, one from a fairly reputable source, that BM has at least contacted BM about the availability of Ryan.
All reports out of the O.C. are that, although at a negotiating stalemate, the Ducks are not interested in moving Ryan, and would match any OS he might garner.
Rumblings have it Ryan wants a 3yr./15M deal.
The name rumoured to be offered in exchange is Kuba. Obviously it would take much, much more than that, if anything, to land Ryan.
Look, I know, rumours are like gossip, in fact, they ARE gossip, so take it as such, and have fun with it.
