Philly and the Flyers seem like a potential destination, given that the team is always involved in such negotiations and given that Ryan is from nearby Cherry Hill, N.J. He grew up a Flyers fan, and the Ducks and Flyers do have a trade relationship with each other. But according to CSN's John Boruk, that's not the case.
Instead, it looks like another Atlantic Division team may be interested in Ryan, perhaps even ahead of the pack.
According to the source, a deal "could" be completed by the end of the week and it appears, as of now, the New York Rangers are the frontrunners. Last week, somewhat surprisingly, the Tampa Bay Lightning were actively discussing a Ryan trade. I would fully expect Toronto and Brian Burke, who drafted Ryan during his days in Southern California, to show interest.
The Rangers are definitely interested in Ryan, even if just on a preliminary basis. Larry Brooks of the New York Post is as plugged in with that organization as anybody, and he says that while the Rangers have had talks with Anaheim about Ryan, it may just be "tire-kicking."
Brooks also says that if a deal goes down Wednesday night -- and we'll likely know that by Ryan's presence in the Ducks lineup at 10 p.m. ET -- it won't be with the Rangers. More wait and see, it seems.
