Redden's my favorite player - if I could afford a Sens jersey, it'd be a #6. And I hate - hate, hate, hate - McCabe. In their respective primes, I'd take Redden's smooth, steady, efficient play any day over McCabe. He reminded me of Al MacInnis later in his career (minus the shot - Redden would take an extra step in from the point and let a laser snapshot go instead of the trademarked MacInnis canon slapper).
That said, right now, McCabe's the better player. Watching games last season (and to a lesser extent, the last two seasons), Redden was invisible unless he was making a gaffe of some sort.
McCabe makes more mistakes, but also a lot of good plays that make up for it. He still makes a lot happen on the ice, more of it good than bad.
Man, that was painful. Nobody hopes Redden regains his form more than me. Well, maybe Glen Sather.
