Redden is getting 6.5 million a year to play hockey, and what's more, he's not even generating any revenue for the team that signed him because he's playing in the AHL, which I doubt is very profitable for any major league team.
If he'd like to get out of that situation, I think he should be able to walk away from his contract and go sign with another NHL team, and then the Rangers would be off the hook. But I'm not sure the CBA allows Redden to negotiate his release.
It should. There should be a way out.
The proposal I made of having to pay players their contracts, minus whatever they get in their next contract, but then not counting any of it against the salary cap, that is the best solution for all sides.
If a cheap NHL team doesn't want to pay a player that's not on it's roster, well, it can just keep him then.
