Redden will count against the cap

$5.6M will count. NHL minimum salary plus $375,000. $525,000 plus $375,000. $900,000

It will be harder to bury one-way deals in the minors under new CBA. This season anything over $900,000 in AHL counts on a team's cap.
To be clear, one-way deals in AHL totalling the minimum salary plus $375,000 are exempt from cap. The #NYR have a decision on Redden.

Add $1,666,667 from the Chris Drury buyout

Rangers will have a cap of $62,933,333.

Michael Sauer can be put on LTIR freeing up $1.25M. Pro-rated amount.

In the NBA,teams were only allowed to buy out players already under contract when the previous CBA expired.

Roszival made less money than WW 11-12. Rozy made $3M. WW made $4M. The Rangers can't trade Redden for another player with the same time left on his contract. They need every penny available for 13-14. No more sending a player to the AHL to shed money. Redden is owed $5M next season. That's a lot of money.
