This would be the effective end of Red's NHL career. He won't be able to spend 3.5 years in the minors, then come back as a 36-year-old. He might attempt a try-out contract to join someone as a #6-7 defenseman for the league minimum, but even that is as likely to fail as to succeed at that point.
Because of the stupid NHLPA rules not allowing him to lower his salary, he can't even do anything to help his situation.
There's a good chance that he'd be willing to drop his salary a couple million a year to stay with the Rangers or be moved to another NHL team.
I would gladly give someone a second rounder to take Redden off our hands. He stays in the NHL and we don't have a massive contract in the minors.
Either way, he needs to be moved off the team to get a spot for Heineken who will bolt at the end of the season unless he gets an NHL spot.
