Your right he probably still has enough in him to be an NHL defenseman but for me he was the Rangers worst Dman last year, he is slow, he gets out muscled easily and honestly just doesnt look interested.
I'd say at best he may be a #5 Dman but honestly i think thats pushing it, for years his play has been declining and i dont see anyway thats going to change. I dont blame Redden for signing the contract that the idiot Sather offered him but even with his NHL career on the line i dont think even Redden himself believed he had what it took to get on the Rangers roster. Listening to an interview with him during the Rangers-Devils pre-season game it really did sound like he didnt really give two *****.
Of course my interpretation of that could be wrong.
