COULD THE SENATORS SHOP BOBBY RYAN?

  • Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun wonders what’s next for Senators winger Bobby Ryan after he was a healthy scratch on Sunday.
  • He’s their highest-paid player but he isn’t producing.
  • His contract would make him difficult to trade.
  • Garrioch doubts there’s much of a market for the 32-year-old winger.
  • Hailey Salvian of the Athletic also considers Ryan’s contract too expensive to move.
  • He’s signed through 2022-23 with an annual average value of $7.25 million.
  • Salvian feels it would take packaging Ryan with a first-round pick to make him palatable in the trade market. With the Senators in the throes of a rebuild, that’s something they shouldn’t do.
  • Ryan has a modified no-trade clause listing 10 preferred trade destinations.
  • Given his cap hit, age, and declining production, I doubt the Senators would find many takers.
