Getting Redden would be nice, but at 6M+, that makes it hard to go for Orpik, Stuart or Smith, assuming you also want to get a top-six winger (we need at least one).
Tyutin should be making 600-800k less, so it's not too hard to justify moving him (not that I'm strongly advocating it) for Cole, Vermette or Cammalleri. That'll give you more freedom to sign two of Liles, Stuart, Streit, Orpik, Hainsey, Rozsival... and even a 3rd pairing guy, like Sauer, Vandermeer or Finger.
And why is everyone all Melichar... JOrts brought him up about a year or two ago and no one liked the idea... now we're all fans?
Sign Kurt Sauer. Then in '09 sign Lundqvist's twin. With an atmosphere like that, we'd be ready for the Cup.
the reason i like redden:
he is actually a top pairing defenseman....the last time the rangers actually had one was leetch.....he is a leader, is a pp qb and the last time he actually played with a defensive defenseman(staal) he had a career year and got that contract....he is in his early 30's and he has been in the playoffs a lot with the sens which is a good thing considering how young the rangers defense is......also, i think he is one of the better options out there as he is established and can play both ends of the rink whereas campbell, who will be getting most loikely close to 8 million can only play offense, orpik(who i got crushed for wanting) can only play the defenseive end will be most likely be getting over 4 million and rozsival will be most likely be getting over 5 as well as he has been a #1 defenseman for 3 years on a playoff team.....i understand people might not want to pay redden the money, however i would rather pay him for 4 years of service so the rangers can get a leader, a pp qb and a puck moving defenseman all in one
now, do i think they need a crease-clearing defenseman?:
absolutely....would i like to sign orpik or stuart....absolutely....i would love the second pairing of girardi with one of those guys, however, if rozsival will sign for 4 million or less, i wouldnt mind having him as the #3 as that would add to the depth.....
