I'm all for Redden over Connolly any day.
If I remember correctly, Redden was drafted as a sound defensive defenseman with a scoring upside. Kinda like Reinhart...scoring upside. Redden got that upside, but then after 10 years with Ottawa, it started to fall.
I equate Redden to that of Yashin. Still good, but soooo not worth what he was getting paid.
Actually, i would prefer Yashin NOW instead of Connolly.
With all these players we are getting, we are gonna have to get an ECHL team too so BP can send overflow there 8-)
I also have a theory as to why Nino and Donovan were not brought up. In the offchance they just don't make the cut, they would have to waive them back down or be forced to keep them up. Other than not getting enough minutes with the big club, the isles would be forced to expose them to waiver by sending them down. It's better to call them up when someone is injured to protect their assets.
