Unless the new CBA implements the rule that AHL contracts apply towards the cap, a Redden buyout wouldn't have any effect on the Rangers cap situation...except perhaps for clearing more space during the summer cap. But as you say, I'm not sure how it would allow the team to add additional contracts.
