Update: The trade deadline is at noon and Ducks forward Bobby Ryan joked about maybe turning his phone off, saying it worked earlier when he was the subject of much speculation. “The team has put [General Manager] Bob Murray in a tough position,” Ryan said. When the Ducks were 20 points out of a playoff spot in early January, they were naturally expected to be sellers, not buyers, at this stage. The Ducks are four points behind 10th-place Colorado in the Western Conference and six out of a playoff spot. “It’s huge,” said the Ducks’ Andrew Cogliano of Sunday night’s 3-1 win against Chicago. “That game set us up for a really big game now in Colorado. With the other teams winning every night, we have to keep winning and keep pace and just keep doing what we’re doing. Take care of our business and keep winning games.”
