Now that Zach Parise is gone, the Devils will need to find a replacement. One of the possibilities is Anaheim Ducks’ Bobby Ryan.
Ryan is on the trading market, but, according to TSN’s Darren Dreger, the Ducks want a few pieces, including a 2nd line center for Ryan.
What would the Devils need to give up to get Ryan? If the Ducks are looking for a 2nd line center, then, Jacob Josefson would most likely be in the discussion. However, I doubt that Lou Lamoriello would trade away Josefson.
Ryan scored 31 goals last season — same as Parise. Plus, Ryan was born and raised in New Jersey.
