Rangers may grab Golden Goose from Ducks

Rumors are flying around like, uh, Ducks.

The Anaheim (formerly mighty) Ducks have been busy aquatic fowls of late. They may or may not be ready to trade Bobby Ryan this week. Ryan, a Collingswood New Jersey native, if traded – would probably end up out of the Duck's division, and so – could easily splash down somewhere in the East.

Bobby had 31 goals and 26 assists in his first full NHL season and 35+29 last year. He's a 24 year old rising star and signed through 2015. He would help the Rangers immediately and for years to come.

The rumors are that the Rangers are in the hunt, along with Montreal, Toronto, Carolina, and possible others. It could take us trading Dubinsky and a defenseman –not Girardi – but everyone else is possible.

But then – last night – another rumor – that the Ducks fired their coach - Randy Carlyle and – it get's weirder – hired the tubby ex-Washington Capital coach Bruce Boudreau – who has been unemployed a total of about 2 days.

So maybe the coaching change stops the Ryan trade – or maybe not. Or maybe none of this is even happening – it's all just rumors at this point.

Still – kind of cool to think about Richards being flanked by Gaborik and Ryan. We'll see what happens…
