The Rangers are not putting $6.5 million in Hartford for 4 years. Especially considering Redden is not going to be the same way Rissmiller or Kaspar was, he's GOING to cause problems in Hartford. Hell, he became a problem after a game as a healthy scratch.

The Rangers only true option is a buyout or re-entry waivers, and I even doubt anyone would take him on re-entry waivers as $3.25/4 years is not a contract any team would give him IMO.

The buyout is only more than $2mil per for 2 years. They're just going to have to suck it up. It's going to hurt our reputation if we just bury a vet that we gave a hueg contract to in the minors. Hell, we've already done this with Rissmiller, and while Kaspar had a pre-lockout contract we did the same with him.
