According to Pierre LeBrun of ESPN.com, the Philadelphia Flyers are interested in Anaheim’s Bobby Ryan.
LeBrun says that any deal with the Flyers for Ryan would need to include 20-year-old center Brayden Schenn.
He notes that the Flyers don’t want to move Schenn and instead would rather move James vanRiemsdyk.
LeBrun thinks that Ryan could be a PLAN B for the Flyers if they miss out on Rick Nash.
Anaheim is reportedly not shopping Ryan, but is listening to offers.
Ryan is from Cherry Hill, NJ.
Adam Rotter: If Schenn would be required from the Flyers, you would think that Derek Stepan would be required for Bobby Ryan. The question that I have with moving Stepan for Ryan, is who then replaces Stepan as the second line center? Artem Anisimov is the easy choice but that is a big role for him to step into after having a down season.
