Ducks Trade Ryan to the Senators for Silfverberg, Noesen and a 1st round pick

The Anaheim Ducks traded winger Bobby Ryan to the Ottawa Senators for Jakob Silfverberg, Stefan Noesen and a 2014 1st round pick.

Ryan was drafted 2nd overall in the 2005 draft by the Ducks. He carries a $5.1 million salary cap hit for the next two season.

Silfverberg was drafted 39th overall in the 2nd round of the 2009 draft by the Senators.

Noesen was drafted 21st overall in the 2011 draft by the Senators.

Draft and Trade Rumors: Avalanche, Maple Leafs, Panthers, Senators, Penguins and Ducks

  • Adrian Dater: Lots of talk that the Avalanche are trying to create a smokescreen by saying they are taking a forward at No. 1. General managers aren’t buying it.
  • Pierre LeBrun of ESPN: Joe Sakic didn’t back down from saying they would take a forward with the first overall pick.

    “He’s a great player, he’s going to be good,” Sakic said over the phone from Denver. “But after we had our internal meetings we came up with these three forwards, (Nathan) McKinnon, (Jonathan) Drouin and (Alexander) Barkov. We’re really leaning towards one of those three forwards.”

    Asked for clarification if they’ll pick one of those three forwards,

    “If we’re picking first overall, yes,” he said firmly.

    Sakic was asked about why telling people what they are planning.

    “It was more really for our fans here, to let our fans know what we’re thinking going into the draft,” said Sakic, the Avs’ vice-president of hockey operations. “That’s really what the purpose was, let them know where we’re leaning. What I said is that we’re picking first overall and this is what we’re doing.”

  • Jason Brough: If reports of the Panthers and Maple Leafs interested Jonathan Bernier are true, are the Leafs and Panthers still potential destinations for Roberto Luongo? Kind of shows the level of confidence the Leafs have in James Reimer and the Panthers in Jacob Markstrom.
  • Howard Berger: Berger still thinks that Leafs GM Dave Nonis will inquire about Avs Paul Stastny. Leafs could steal a true No. 1 center who needs a fresh start. Berger wrote last month that he’d trade Carl Gunnarsson and Nikolai Kulemin for Stastny. The Avalanche need to make cap room for Matt Duchene, Ryan O’Reilly and Gabriel Landeskog. Trading Stastny’s contract makes too much sense.
  • Ken Warren of the Ottawa Citizen: If the Penguins sign Kris Letang and need to trade out some salary, Senators GM Bryan Murray should be calling about James Neal. Senators trade chips Stefan Noesen, Matt Puempel and Shane Prince. The Ducks may have to move Bobby Ryan, who has two years and $10.2 million left on his deal. Bryan should call Bob to see what it would take to bring Ryan to Ottawa. Should Daniel Alfredsson retire, Daniel Briere may be a nice replacement.

Quick hits on Bourchard, Huselius, Mattias, Noesen and the Islanders

  • Michael Russo of the Star Tribune: Wild’s Pierre-Marc Bouchard said in the last few weeks he’s ”pretty much symptom free” from the season ending concussion he suffered on January 4th. Bouchard isn’t a locked out player yet. He’ll be visiting doctors later this week.
  • David Pagnotta via twitter: Panthers Shawn Mattias is playing in Austria and may have suffered a concussion. He’s being looked at, and may end up returning home.
  • Bob McKenzie via twitter: Team USA’s Stefan Noesen has been deemed ineligible for the World Junior Championship by the IIHF due to his OHL suspension. He’d have 7 of 10 games left on his suspension. Chris Peters via twitter: Noesen would have likely played in a top-six role, and is not easily replaced.
  • BD Gallof via twitter: Officials at Barclays gave a “no comment” on the rumor that the Islanders could move to Brooklyn before the end of the 2015 season. Gallof thought it was worth noting because the media departments usually give a stock answer from the original press conference or denying a change.
