Elliotte Friedman wrote about Redden's situation in late December.

He wrote teams would be interested in Redden if the Rangers amnestied him assuming there were compliance buyouts and they took place this season.

One final note on Redden. It looks like the Rangers have all but guaranteed he is getting the buyout (if there is one) and the sense is there is going to be a lot of interest in him. Don't know what the final salary will be. But if he's willing to be reasonable -- and you have to believe he will be -- he's going to have options. Lots of execs think he will be good value at a lower number.

Maybe Redden decides to walk away from his Ranger contract and signs with another team.

Have those teams seen Redden play? The same execs who caused the lockout with the crazy contracts which forced Bettman to get contract term limits and variances.

The Rangers can't afford to take back bad money for 13-14 in a trade when they can they dump Redden in June. Redden is owed $5M in 13-14.
