I believe team retaining contract costs takes affect once the CBA is ratified. Teams can retain a max of 3m per single player trades.

Redden's cap hit is 6.5m but actual salary is 5m if I am not mistaken.

This means we would only have to spend 2m per season for him. I think that is fair, saves the Rangers 4m if they were to buy him out.
