I think that a contract like Redden's is the reason why I wanted to take a chance on McCabe at the deadline in April.
i agree with this line of thought. redden for 6 years has disaster written all over it. lucky for our team, money don't mean **** and he doesn't have an nmc, so if he sucks it up we can just stash him in hartford....you know, like the last overpaid defenseman to wear #6.
I wish we had neither and tried to make a good trade for Bouwmeester.
Problem is trading for Bouwmeester would've taken quite a bit in assets (then again, it's the Florida Panthers ) probably a defensemen, which might've then not less us trade for Zherdev. Considering how desperate we are for a game-breaking forward, I'd prefer Redden and Zherdev (even w/ the question marks) to just Bouwmeester.
Wade has always been leaps and bounds better than McCabe in terms of defensive ability and passing. The only thing McCabe has more is physicality (slightly, Redden is no pansy) and a canon of a shot. We already have a canon of a shot at the point, problem is he never uses it (Rozsival)
