That's a single pass, in his worst season. He played for you guys for 11 years. And from what I've seen and what I've heard, his first pass was better more often than not.
It's amazing to me how a guy can play at such a high level for a decade, and yet one bad year can totally define his career for so many people.
People question character and all that crap, but the 07-08 team was pretty similar to that of 06-07, their Finals team. It had nothing to do with character, really. They just were bad.
So how was Redden responsible for the team being bad? Wasn't everyone bad?
People seem to think that now that Redden is gone, the Sens are magically just going to go back to being a dominant team, and I find that laughable. The problems obviously ran much deeper than a single player's downward spiral, and now that he's gone, all those other problems (whatever they are) are still there, but now the team is without Redden's talents.
