Buzz: Bobby Ryan May Cost A Center

According to Pierre LeBrun of, 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.
