I can't imagine Redden is better than either at 35 years old and having been out of the NHL for 2 years.

BTW, if this takes away playing time from Ian Cole, we might as well trade him now or in the summer because he'll never play for us.

Russell did look good; next to Polak. They compliment each other to a tee.

The entire reason we're even discussing Cole or Redden next to Pietrangelo is to keep our 2nd and 3rd pairings(which may be the best in the League) intact.

Hitch has already said publicly that Cole can't handle playing against top players; hence bringing in White on a PTO and now signing Redden. I know Cole has a lot of fans; but Hitch apparently isn't one of them and people need to come to grips with that fact.
