I'd love to see the Islanders open up the wallet and throw a ton of money at him. I know there are always concerns with RFAs, etc, but I'd love to see him skating for the Isles. He'd be a dominant force, particularly in the weaker East.
ESPN was reporting that the Ducks might be interested in trading him, but I don't see that. Not sure the Isles really have a package to offer anyway, so an RFA offer sheet might be the best bet. I know some people are adamantly opposed to RFA offers, etc. For the folks who know better than I do, what do the Isles give up if they make an offer to Ryan and he accepts?
Other thoughts on BR?
