How about this scenerio? Redden for Souray in the summer. I don't know how close the Oilers are to the floor but this will get them above if that is an issue. Chance for Redden to be in the NHL while the Oilers have a positive presence in the lockerroom. We gain some extra cap space in the summer and if Souray isn't living up to his contract we waive him.
Why would Edmonton do that? Redden is signed for two more years than Souray. Redden makes $16.5M over the next 3 years while Souray makes $4.5M next season. What are they getting for the extra $12M.
