There are no negotiated buyouts. The only buyout option would pay Redden 2/3rds of his remaining salary over twice the length of the remaining contract. So, 2/3rds of 23 million. The cap hits would be:

2010-2011 : $1,916,667
2011-2012 : $1,916,667
2012-2013 : $3,416,667
2013-2014 : $3,416,667
2014-2015 : $1,916,667
2015-2016 : $1,916,667
2016-2017 : $1,916,667
2017-2018 : $1,916,667

There's no way the Rangers are going to buy him out and carry those cap hits for the next 8 years. Redden could refuse the assignment to Hartford, or leave Hartford after reporting, in which case the Rangers could terminate his contract. But then Redden wouldn't get that 23 million.

I know you're probably joking, but just so everyone understands, this is not an option. Players on 1 way contracts cannot be sent to the ECHL.
