As for people concerned that it might stop potential free agents from signing here, I really hope it does. If we go to sign a free agent, and he is afraid to sign here because he thinks he might be buried in the minors, I'd be glad we scared him off. We don't need a player who lacks that much courage or skill in our line up, who thinks that their play is AHL caliber. The Rangers are a first class organization. All of the players around the league know this. The players get treated like royalty. Getting rid of a player who is on the worst contract since the lock-out, really shouldn't stop us from luring future free agents in.
It really does not seem that way when you think about the Knicks. I think I read that they spent $120 million dollars on a group of no more than 8 players that combined for 82 man games. You would think that burying Redden would be a non-issue when looking at those numbers.
