In other words, you'd have demote Redden and someone making at least $850K to get under the cap.
Don't think it works that way. If you buy them out now, the buyout amount remaining still counts on the cap during the summer. If the Rangers spent up to the 10% overage, that will include that buyout amount.
They'd still just need to get down to 59.4, not 57.7.
