That's all you need to know about Redden. The man has collected Millions and Millions. His family is set for life. Yet, money was more important to him than having an opportunity to play for a Cup.

Sad thing is I actually like Redden as a person. I've lost all respect for him as a player though. Even if his contract was cut in half, the level of emotion, and willingness to compete was embarassing. The man has no self-confidence left.
Yup.

I'd like to see you give up $26 million when you have a family to support.
