Ducks winger Bobby Ryan said Tuesday he "wouldn't be surprised" if he were traded, possibly to the Rangers.

Ryan told the Orange County Register, "If they feel like the Ducks are going to get better and I'm going to get a chance to play somewhere else, I guess I would. But I'm certainly not thinking about it day in and day out."

Rangers general manager Glen Sather has been in touch with Ducks counterpart Bob Murray regarding the availability of the 24-year-old power winger.

"At any time if we get offered a deal on any player that makes this team better, we would have to take a long, hard look at that," Murray told the newspaper.
