Bobby Ryan: Not Available? I think otherwise...

Bob McKenzie, Jimmy Murphy, Joe Haggerty, have all tweeted out that ANA along with several other teams (Mostly Western Conference) have had scouts at Bruins games over the last 2-3 weeks. Other teams included Edmonton, Calgary, Ottowa, Florida, Phoenix.
If you think about it, ANA has been starving for centers. The Bruins are filled with centermem, not only on the current roster but also in the system. You got guys like Ryan Spooner, Alexander Kokhlachev,and Carl Soderberg that may become attractive to them.
The only roster player I see the Bruins having possible interest in return would be Bobby Ryan. I am aware of last year's rumors concerning a David Krejci for Bobby Ryan swap. Which is something I would entertain.
I know there are a lot of people that would not do the deal. However, I feel Bobby is the better player.
Bobby Ryan- 365 games 283pts =0.775pts/gm *16:27 ATOI / 9g 15a-24pts (2012-2013)
Would be 7th among Bruins forwards in ice-time
David Krejci- 408 games 302pts=0.740pts/gm 18:56 ATOI
Ryan has more points per game avg in his career along w/ 35g and 39a (74 Power-Play points).
David has played in 43 more games and has less point per game avg and just 15g and 57a (72 Power-Play points)
IMO Bobby is a more dynamic player with game-breaking ability. If a trade of this magnitude is there to be made i would be on aboard.
