We also dont know if the Rangers can trade Redden and add salary that does not go on the cap. Going to be interesting.

If they cant find a deal I guess they eat Redden this yr, it hurts on the cap and at the trade deadline but atleast its all over next summer with the Redden buyout allowed.
I think Sather will find a date for the dance with Redden, I just don't see it being as fruitful as some think. He could be a decent 3rd pair defenseman on a different team, change can be a beautiful thing for some players. Remember there were rumors that the Pens had interest in Redden if he was bought out of his contract, I just see them shipping him to a young team looking for a veteran 6th d-man who can give him a chance this year and always buy him out at the end if he stinks. He may be going with a pick unless we can take a bad contract back.
