Back in June during an interview with the Courier-Post, Anaheim Ducks forward Bobby Ryan loudly voiced his displeasure with his current team. He wanted to be traded, and if that demand were filled, he'd like to become a member of the Philadelphia Flyers.

Ryan grew up in Cherry Hill and his family has ties to the Flyers' organization, so it only makes sense. Who doesn't want to come home? (Looking at you, Mike Trout.)

Speaking this week in Anaheim, though, Ryan walked back the comments, telling the Orange County Register that he regrets publicly stating his trade desire.
