To me trying to sign Chara as a UFA at 6.5-7mill per year (and lose no players) would make more sense than offering Souray, Ryder and a 1st rounder for Pronger as some suggested. Assuming we have the cap space to sign a Chara
Redden will most likely sign before he hits the market. Chara is not as good as Progner and he will cost more money then Progner because teams will try to outbid each other. If a guy like Progner is available for a trade you certainly look at the option. After all the Oilers traded for him and they got to the stanley cup finals.
