That's 9 NHL caliber defensemen (sure Murray is out for the season but he's still in the system). I don't see very much playing time for Redden without having to send Moore and/or Savard back to Springfield and not giving Erixon much of a chance at all this season.
I'd rather have Redden as the 7th defenseman and have Savard getting minutes at Springfield.
It does make sense. In case Aucoin would get hurt, you could bring in another vet. Not that he'd be any good, but he'd be experienced.
