As for Rozy and Redden, the big problems are there contracts. Rozy is overpriced, but a capable NHL defenseman. Redden is hanging by a threat, but if he were making $850,000, we probably wouldn't care.
If Redden were making 850K we'd have 5.65 mil to spend on someone else. Not saying that Slats would necessarily spend it well but that other player could be a someone who would make a very positive difference.
That's the problem with overpaying or making big mistakes on who you go after. Multiple bad decisions put you in a big hole and it's not always possible to trade them away and they can have a big effect throughout the lineup.
