I feel as though fans have a difference telling the difference between just being slow and not trying. Redden was never fast to begin with. Just because he lacks some speed doesn't mean he's not trying.
All I know he is not the same player I seen break in with the Isles and play in Ottawa for a decade. He's lost something along the way here and I don't think it's speed.

I'm not sure which is more scary. That we didn't bother to scout this guy before giving him this insane contract, or that we did scout him and felt he was worth being one of the highest paid defenders in the sport.
