Jackets interested in Redden?
 
Don't know if it deserves its own thread, but Portzline says the CBJ are going to be in on Wade Redden.

Again.

...this time, with Redden, not the Jackets, eating the humble pie.

Howson loves him some Redden even after all this?

“@TSNBobMcKenzie: Multiple teams considering options on both. LA, STL, TOR, FLA among those kicking tires on Redden, ANA and CAR among those considering Gomez”

Jaxs 01-17-2013 05:11 PM

No thanks to Redden.

candyman82 01-17-2013 05:33 PM

I wouldn't mind Redden as a #7

Jaxs 01-17-2013 05:49 PM

Careful if you are going to sign Redden

This is classic!

CBJBrassard16 01-17-2013 06:32 PM

I'll take Redden as a shot in the dark as a #7 dman. Let Savard fine tune his game, and if Redden blows, call Savard up and waive Redden. No lose situation

Sure, why not? He'd be just fine as our #7 bench defenseman.

Until Richards decides to play him..the horror!

Roadman 01-17-2013 06:56 PM

If the defense is indeed the best part of the team, and our greatest depth, why are we adding there?

Because **** you, rest of NHL. Sign ALL the defensemen!

Sore Loser 01-17-2013 07:54 PM

We have a ton of depth on defense, and plenty of cap space to sign him (as long as he's fairly cheap, which, after getting bought out for that much money, he should be). I don't see why he would come here, but if he did I don't really see the harm in signing him for depth. A guy in his circumstance will probably be looking to sign with a contender of some sort - his age is catching up with him, and as was mentioned above, he should be humbled and willing to accept his fate.

For these reasons, I think the Ottawa Senators will be #1 at the top of his list. He spent his best years there, and they are a team that is looking for defensemen after losing Jared Cowen for the year.

EspenK 01-17-2013 08:02 PM

To me it makes no sense. Unless the team really surprises and is one veteran d-man from becoming a contender I don't see why we need him. Let Savard, Erixon, Holden, etc be the 7th.

JacketFanInFL 01-17-2013 08:16 PM

Holy moly no freakin thanks. We dodged the bullet not getting him the first go round.

Iron Balls McGinty 01-17-2013 08:20 PM

Not sure we need him with enough D depth for the 1st time ever but at least we wouldn't be paying stupid NYR dolars for him this time.

To remind everyone, not getting him caused us to run out and sign Mike Commodore. So we dodged HALF a bullet. :sarcasm:

Only two more years after this one to get him off the books.

Would like to add a veteran defender to knock Savard back to Springfield. Savard needs to stay in the AHL and learn rather than up in Columbus. He's being rushed for no reason at all.

Paisano* 01-17-2013 08:54 PM

So with the Commodore fiasco still on the books, why would we want Redden? I'm curious who is interested in him, Howson or JD?

LetsGOJackets!! 01-17-2013 09:17 PM

Redden?
 
Why in the world would we do that. Bring up Holden or someone else that is affordable and still trying. Send Savard back..

I'll go ahead and handle all scenarios here, under the guise of "normal board member"

Interested party
If it's Davidson: "Clearly he sees someone that would bring a stabilizing veteran presence to a young blueline. It would also allow one of Moore or Savard to spend more time logging 25 minutes a night in Springfield, which can be nothing but positive for their development.

If it's Howson: "Did someone forget to pin his mittens to his jacket? I'm hilarious."

Outcome - favorable
If it's Davidson: "That's why he was hired, to find guys who can still produce despite minimal interest elsewhere."

If it's Howson: "Obviously he listened to Davidson."

Outcome - dismal
If it's Davidson: "Clearly this was a Howson move."

If it's Howson: "That one-year deal is absolutely crippling. Does anyone else Nikita Filatov?"

:facepalm: Posts like this are why I kvetch about a "ineffably tainted with horrible failure" mindset that comes up here.

The "bullet" dodged was that we were going to pay him and play him as a top-4 or even top-pairing defenseman, which was undeserved. This was a legitimate concern AT THE TIME.

Now more time has passed. This is no longer a concern. Therefore it is no longer somehow some horrible nameless act of evil if we were to sign him for, say, $1m to be our #7D.

That the very thought of this would engender such a reaction of "omg onoes" and "who's to blame" speaks very, very poorly of our fanbase as a whole.

Seriously. "Is this Howson or Davidson?" :banghead: And exactly why the **** should that matter one ******* iota? Swear to G-d. Some people here. Unbe****inglievable. :shakehead

LetsGOJackets!! 01-17-2013 09:28 PM

Give me a break..
 
sorry, my work stress caused me to lash out. What I should have said was, Wade Redden, that would be great!!
