It's the Redden's, Drury's, etc. and their costs that plague this team.
At the same time the Redden signing is the only truly BAD signing he has made. Coming out of 06-07 we needed two centers. He went and got two centers. A playmaker to play with Jagr (Gomez) and a guts/clutch/leader guy to play on the second line (Drury).

They got paid what the market deemed appropriate. I can't stand the people that sit here and act like Sather overpaid them by 2 million each on purpose. At the time they were great signings and every "expert" who now bashes us has us as one of the top-5 teams in the league. The signings made sense. They just didn't work out.

Redden is the one that should have never happened...
