He loses $1,666,667 in the amnesty buyout.

Redden avoided losing money in escrow the last 3 seasons by playing in the AHL. The players didn't lose that much in escrow.
Ah, I counted games and not days. You are, of course, right here. Makes it even more likely he might just walk away. Imagine that. We buyout Richards & Gaborik next year (after winning our Cup) and sign Getzlaf & Perry in the offseason for same $$$ instead.
THAT would be something, not gonna happen though...
