You can't possibly have watched him all season long and came out thinking this guy is a solid top 4 d-man. Even Paul Mara played better defense for a larger portion of the season, than Redden.
Redden was fine last season. He has his ups and downs but the last 1/4th of the season and playoffs he was very solid in his own zone.

As for the Mara comment....did you forget Mara was also playing about 8 minutes less and against other teams 3rd/4th lines while Redden was usually paired again the other teams top 2 lines?

Redden >>>>>>>>>> Mara...any day of the week.
