If anything... you have to grandfather it in. The idea was legal in the past CBA, just like these ridiculously long retirement contracts. I'm much less concerned about one more year of Redden than I would be of some of these monster retirement deals going forward.

Also, the Rangers played by the rules. They subjected him to waivers. They are paying his FULL salary. They have paid the price for their mistake. Could the Islanders afford to make that mistake? No. The Rangers can. If that's the biggest advantage they have in a frame work where large amounts of their income is subject to revenue sharing then I find it hard to get too broken up about it.
