Redden's play definitely declined from early 2007 on. He was moving slower, reacting slower, and making more mistakes.

At the end of the 2008 season the consensus of the Ottawa media was that Redden would have to take a major pay cut to return, and that 3M per year might be fair. I agreed with that. He wasn't playing like a top dman at all.

The contract the Rangers gave him was incredible. Redden didn't get a pay cut at all, and he got six years. Where were the Rangers' pro scouts on that one?
