Pierre LeBrun-Wade Redden thoughts

The only real option on Redden is to send him to the AHL and eat his contract. A buyout next summer doesn't solve anything because the Rangers would still carry a $2 million cap hit from him for the next eight years.

I guess if you're New York, there's also the hope that when the next collective-bargaining agreement is negotiated, whether that's after next season or the season after that (the NHL Players' Association has the option of extending it a seventh year), teams will once again get a one-time shot at buying out their worst contract without cap implications, which was the case in August 2005, when the last CBA started. That would be an opportune time for the Rangers to deal with Redden.

One more round of compliance buyouts.

Pierre thinks the Rangers like Sheldon Souray who would waive his NTC for the Rangers. However,the Rangers need to move one of their two contracts on defense to fit in Souray who is having a terrible season in Edmonton. LeBrun mentioned in a chat last Thursday about the Rangers being interested in Souray. Pass. No way.
