The Wild brass have made it known that they will be more active in the FA market this year, specifically for top 4 defensemen. Redden would fill a huge hole, now and for the future.

correct me if I am wrong, but I think with a core of chara, mezsaros, phillips and volchenkov Ottawa wouldnt be significantly damaged with the loss of Wade Redden.
Well, that's what I was thinking. With Meszaros coming up, the loss of Redden or Chara won't be so hard to take. But Mez is more of a replacement for Chara than Redden. Plus, Redden seems more likely to take a smaller contract to stay in Ottawa. Unless, we can dump Varada, Smokes, and Phillips' contracts, Chara seems like the odd one out.
