I'd much rather have Redden than Rozsival.
Anyway, why crucify the guy before he even steps foot on the ice? If Renney's system can make Marek Malik a passable 1st-pair defenseman for the better part of three years, something tells me Redden will be just fine. He's the best first-passer in the game, and he legitimately fills the role of PP QB, something this team has been missing since #2 was traded. And he also has a very good relationship with Perry Pearn, who I'm sure was instrumental in bringing him here.
At the very least, give the guy a chance. If he's expected to fail, it's more likely that he will, and the reverse is also true.
