On Michael Del Zotto and Wade Redden:

Del Zotto had no specific update, but said he believes a deal will be done. I do as well, and have been saying so...

As for Redden, well...

Rangers management were meeting yesterday with representatives for the 35-year-old defenseman, who spent the last two seasons AHL with the AHL’s Connecticut Whale, to determine a course of action. If he is waived again before opening night and not claimed, Redden’s cap hit of $5.875 million would be included in the cap. Under the new CBA, contracts over $900,000 can no longer be “buried” in the minors. A buyout of his final season in his six-year deal couldn’t occur until June.

DZ can't re-sign until the CBA is ratified.
