When Bobby Ryan left the Anaheim Ducks, he felt relief, but still has no hard feelings against the team who dealt him to the Ottawa Senators.
Ryan talked about the move, saying:
“[I’m] just glad that side of it is done, that I can kind of move forward and focus on just playing games and helping my team win. Not knowing how you were going to get treated day-to-day in the locker room because you don’t know what the latest rumor was. It was a very amicable split. There’s no hard feelings or anything like that. I think a lot of people imagined we had. It was just time to move on and they agreed with it.I’m excited that it’s over.”
It wasn’t a secret that Ryan was upset about his future being in limbo, but he’s already gotten over it.
The Senators will have Ryan for two more seasons, with $5.1 million counting towards the cap. After that, he’ll be a free agent and can decide where he wants to go.
