According to Bruce Garrioch in the Ottawa Sun, the Senators are interested in trying to acquire Bobby Ryan from the Anaheim Ducks.
Garrioch writes that Anaheim is looking for a second line center and a young defenseman to replace Justin Schultz who wouldn’t sign with the team.
Other teams interested in Ryan are believed to be the Flyers, Leafs, Penguins, Red Wings and Lightning.
Garrioch notes that top prospects Mika Zibanejad and Robin Lehrner would be offered up in a potential deal for Rick Nash.
It is believed the Rangers will not trade Derek Stepan to acquire Ryan or Nash.
