Eh, you know, as a Sens fan - I feel like the right call (at the time) was made.

It was Chara or Redden. Hindsight is 20/20 as they say, but at the time, Redden was the better player, younger (I believe), and more likely to be the backbone of our defense. I favoured Redden then. Obviously, time has proved me wrong. I don't think, at the time, it was the wrong decision though. It's not fair to evaluate the past by modern knowledge.

The Devils definitely could use a great d-man though. Do you think Lou might take Hamilton at 4, or gamble he'd fall to 6? I hear the Islanders had nice things to say about Murphy.
