Bobby Ryan had this to say to Randy Miller of the Courier Post:
“I take things personally,. 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 gotta be honest with you. At this point, I don’t care. Move me … because it’s just tough going to the rink every day knowing that if something goes wrong, you’re going to be the guy moved.”
Ryan tells Miller that he is willing to go anywhere, but the Flyers would be his first choice since it would be a return home for him. Ryan is from Cherry Hill, NJ.
Ryan’s dad said, ““In my mind, the Flyers are the best that there is. But I just want to see him happy. The only place he can’t go is the Rangers. I’d never hear the end of it from Clarkie.”
