It's not often that one of the top young players in the NHL is rumored on the move, especially when he has averaged over 60 points for the last four seasons and is just 25 years of age, but Bobby Ryan of Anaheim is hearing the rumors and has had enough.
The youngster recently told reporters that being traded is likely in his best interest, especially since he now feels unwanted by the Ducks. Several teams around the league would add Ryan in a heartbeat and the front-runner appears to be Philadelphia.
The Flyers had a terrific year last season, but the team needs to add some offensive fire power to keep pace with the NY Rangers and adding the big left winger is a move the front office needs to take a hard look at over the next few weeks.
Ryan was the second overall pick in the 2005 NHL Draft and has done little to disappoint, but the Ducks seem willing to trade their young star and the Flyers should do what it takes to add the youngster in a move that would create a buzz in Philadelphia and make the Flyers one of the favorites to win a Stanley Cup this season.
