Very interesting stuff, so when looking at his ATOI it is actually lower when he was paired with York on that shutdown pairing. This goes along with what I was saying (tough minutes etc..)
Redden partnered with Chara for much of 01-02 and I expect they drew the tough assignments.
From 02-03 to 05-06 Chara's pairing faced top lines. Redden's usually didn't. Same thing after Chara left - another pairing faced top lines
So for the majority of his time In Ottawa he was not paired against top lines. So his R value of whatever you want to call it is pretty misleading.
