Yes, he and his agent would have pushed Sather for as much $$ as possible, but at the end of the day nobody but Sather made him offer that ludicrous contract.

For the record, I'm of the multitude who hated the redden signing and wish that it had never happened and feel that this team certainly doesn't need him.

Having said that, I still feel that redden last year was NHL caliber defenceman (bottom pairing) and that if his salary had of been sub $2.5m he would have dressed for the Rangers last year as he was better than Eminger, Gilroy and MDZ coming out of camp.
