His first year in NY he was bad so this past year, the Rangers tried to accomodate him by moving him to the third pairing lined up against the opposition's weakest lines.

He was just as bad. There are some Rangers fans who say he's a fine 4-6 NHL defenseman as long as you ignore the salary issue. I don't buy that. His play is disinterested, inconsistent and generally poor. Age and declining skills coupled with what I perceive as a poor attitude make him a liability. On a stacked young defense, in a rebuilding team, there is no need or desire for a Wade Redden.
