Redden is all a gamble. He's a potential #1 defenseman.

Colin White is never going to be a #1. There's a pretty big difference in that regard, sattar18.

The Redden contract is all based on potential. The White contract was based off of past laurels in the pre-lockout NHL and so far looks like it's terrible.

No Way man, im sorry. but you underate Staal, girardi, and mara. Staal was playing 28 minutes per game without PP time, White is not even close to his level.

Mara was hurt with a lacerated face. and again Staal played as a #1/2 dman in the playoffs, and got 28 min/game w/o PP time. White is definetly not capable of that, im sorry.

Heaven forbid you re-sign your #1 scorer... and then probably wave goodbye to your #4 scorer too... because they're 'TOO OLD'.

Good to see you're going with youth like Dubinsky and his 40pts rather than Jagr and Shanny with their 147 pts.

Good moves; better post.

At the moment when the contract was given it was a good deal.



i would like to see how may d-men can play at the NHL level with one eye


And why the hell are people bashing white, i would like to see how many people would even consider playing in the nhl with one eye.
Bryan Berard says Hi. he actually only has one eye. the other one is fake.

I was holding back on posting in this thread for obvious reasons. But this post takes the cake. You are either completely biased or just plain stupid. One of the 2. To say that Colin White is CURRENTLY better than Marc Staal is probably the most uninformed, idiotic post I have ever read on these HFBoards. You my friend get post of the year.

And who the hell cares? If it works, who cares how your money is spent?

We beat the snot out of your team last year with our money tied up into a few guys as well.

If you can win like that, then it's obviously not a bad thing.

good points and all...but is this really necessary? we're in the middle of the summer (and all begging for the puck to drop, i know)...but trash talking about who is having the better off-season? personally I'll save it again until the games start up again.

besides, we still whooped them in the playoffs =)
