The odds the Ottawa Senators leave Bobby Ryan exposed in Junes NHL Expansion Draft appear slim, and even if Pierre Dorion tempted the Golden Knights by making Ryan available theres no guarantee Vegas would want to take on Ryans annual $7.25-million salary cap.

While speaking with reporters during Ottawas team locker clean-out Saturday the talented winger was asked if he was worried about the expansion draft?

The question literally made Ryan laugh.

For me? Are they going to take $7 million? No. Im good, Ryan said through a chuckle.

Ryan, who added he hasn't thought about the expansion draft "not even a little bit," is set to enter the third year of a seven-year, $50.75 million contract extension he inked with the Sens a year after being acquired from the Anaheim Ducks.

The thought of leaving Ryan exposed is one that might have cropped up following his disappointing regular season performance, his worst year as a professional. However, Ryan was excellent for the Sens in their improbable playoff run that ended in a Game 7 double overtime heartbreaker Thursday against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Ryan led all Ottawa forwards with 15 points in 19 post-season games, including two overtime winners.
