rangers fans act like this guy doesn't know how to play hockey at all. for a 3rd line defenseman he would be a great fit, the problem was sather offered a guy who could be a minor contributor to a team the money you would give your superstars. people forget that even though he had absolutely no offense left in his game by his last year he was still a +8 for the season. in hartford he put up 42 points and was a -1 last season. if that was a young guy we would all be screaming at sather to bring him up.

point is, redden is not a great player, probably not even a good player. he's average, a good 3rd line guy. his 6.5 cap hit makes him impossible to keep on the team. we all hated him so much because he was being paid so much money to do absolutely nothing.

also, was ANY team willing to pay redden anything close to 6.5 when he was on the market? i don't remember anyone thinking he was worth much at all. blame sather, not redden
