Phoenix Coyotes/Shane Doan/Bobby Ryan/CBA update
Posted 17 August 2012 - 04:01 AM
Another possible fit would be Bobby Ryan if Doan falls through. We all know that Philly wants him, but the rumor is that they need defensive help first. If Bobby Ryan would be happy to play with Sid and not jump ship once his contract is up, the Pens should package a deal for him while they can.
There is about a month left before the current CBA expires. After Sept. 15th, the NHL has warned the players of a possible lockout. As of this moment, the two sides are far apart, but each side has only given their initial proposals. Lets hope that counter-proposals happen quickly and a new CBA can be agreed upon. If this drags out like the last one, it could be a long winter.

I think Ryan would probably be a good fit however like you mentioned, if he is going to just jump ship I would rather see the Pens pass then. My own opinion is I would rather see the Pens sign guys who want to be here instead of "rental" players.
I havent had much time to keep up on the CBA talks but the idea of a lockout on Sep. 15th makes me cringe. Hockey makes the cold wintery months far less dreary.
