Brooklyndevil - I totally understand and respect this thought. That being said, there are two counterpoints I'd like to offer. First of all, if there is any fear from a potential player signing here that he needs a Non-Movement-Clause to assure a spot, then I wish that player luck elsewhere. I don't want him on the Rangers as he clearly lacks the confidence that he would justify the contract he would be signing.

Also, as a potential Free Agent. Wouldn't you want to come to a team where the Front Office will try to make moves to give their team the best chance to win? If I am a potential FA and I see that the Rangers would not explore an option to assign Redden to Hartford in order to improve the team, I may have second thoughts about the Rangers as an organization.
