Legitimately good defensemen don't play only 17 minutes a game. And he's not anywhere near as good as Staal. On average Staal played 6 more minutes a game and against better players, and was overall more consistent in doing that. I think it's hard to argue against that. If you don't believe me go re-watch the game from last season

In any case, we brought in Redden for his supposed offense. He has contributed none of that, and has shown that his impressive offensive numbers in previous years were probably more reflective of him being surrounded by elite talent on a regular basis.
