08:35 AM ET 03.08 | Bobby Ryan, in the midst of trying season, often on a line with Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry, has high hopes for the future. "My next step ultimately would be to break away from Getz and Pears. I think we've had chemistry. But at some point, you're going to have to prepare for life after Teemu [Selanne]. I'd like to fill into that role and have that second line be built. I think I can step into Teemu's role. I think I can put up 35 to 40 goals year in and year out. Personally on the ice, I'd like to be able to break games open a little more. Sometimes when I play with Getz and Pears, I get the feeling like I've got to be a secondary guy."

oh my...this should do wonders for the locker room atmosphere

I'm surprised if this is the Bobby feels, that he hasn't been juggled around. Maybe he has, I haven't seen alot of the Ducks this year. Obviously, the coach is where you go with these kind of issues. Wonder if he was shopped around before the deadline.

Why do guys say these type of things publicly? Will never get it.

Sounds like a breakup that would happen in high school.

"we had chemistry but...." used to be "I love you but I'm not in love with you....."

I'm waiting for the footage of Ryan in a badly lit rink with a couple of other players, trying to be secretive.

It sounds like Ryan is tired of doing the work for Getzlaf and Perry and them reaping the rewards.

I hope no ones feelings get hurt!

Where does "I'm confused" come into this scenario?

March 8, 2012  09:22 AM ET

I thinks he's overanalyzing his value to the team. That's managements job. Just play hockey.

Ed Zachary.

Bobby's still mad that he got silver jewlery instead of gold so he told Sissy in Social Studies that he wants to date other people.

Hey! Hey!

Who would have thunk they would have won the silver? Some placed them at 7th before it all began.

If the Ducks don't make the playoffs, it's very likely that Getzlaf and/or Ryan will be traded.

Can they still be friends?

Yes but Bobby won't be getting Corey's "Twinkie" anymore.

Locker room atmosphere? I didn't know they had one in Anaheim!

He has scored over 30 goals each of the last three seasons, but good luck getting the puck from those two losers any more.

I like this comment and he's absolutely correct. Not too often you see someone want to be removed from the top line either. Truth to power baby!
