Not recently.

Two bad years.

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.
I don't know what people you're talking about, but if they blame all our problems on Redden, they're wrong. He deserves much more blame than the majority of players, but it wasn't all one player's fault.

Regardless, thinking he's just a scapegoat is just as foolish and thinking he was the only problem.
