Boys, we did it. We survived the Wade Redden saga! Such a happy day. Now I don't have to worry about him coughing up the damn puck anymore in NHL 11 or real life.

Wade Redden told #NYRangers GM Glen Sather he'll take a few days to consider options. Sather said he would be allowed to play at Hartford.

Almost unbelievable. I almost wish his cap hit wasn't so high so that we could just play his sorry ass.

Hope he can go to Europe. I really don't want him in Hartford.

Sather said that Redden did not seem too surprised when he got the news, that "he'd seen the writing on the wall." The Rangers' president and general manager said that he would accept whatever decision Redden makes should he clear waivers, whether the 33-year-old defenseman chooses to accept an assignment to Hartford or tries to find a job in Europe.

Anybody think he'll retire?

It was raised in some other thread- he has a kid on the way and, although he'd be passing on 6 million dollars for the new few years, if he's been frugal with his money he could possibly still do it.

It is a day of celebration for all Rangers Fans!!! But i really do feel horrible for Redden on a personal level, especially with a new born child. Do u take the money and swallow your pride or terminate the contract and hope to find a job elsewhere?

The Rangers just announced that Redden is going on waivers at noon today. If (well, when) he clears, in 48 hours, Redden will either report to Connecticut's training camp or choose another option -- Europe, retirement or something else. Rangers president Glen Sather just spoke with us at the MSG Training Center about it.
Quote:
"You have to do what's right for the team. That's really what it got down to in the end," Sather said. "We wanted a situation where the young players are going to have the opportunity, it was a fresh start for these guys and we might as well get it done. No sense prolonging it."

Staple has been writing since April about Redden being a goner.

Had to be done. You can't waste that much cap space and expect to be a serious contender. Might not be a nice thing to do but still very necessary. Got to make hard choices such as these. Horrible signing Slats but this redeems it a little.

Somebody slap me.

From Gross' blog entry on the subject:

“We’ll honor his contract,” Sather said.
So does this mean he'll at least get paid no matter what happens? Can they do that?

Wade is not a bad guy, so I do feel somewhat bad for him. I hope he can find something in Europe, rather than slogging through an AHL campaign.

Good for us though, haha. Drury is the only killer contact left!

Redden has made $29 million in the last 4 seasons. 2 years/$13 million with Ottawa. Made $16 million in his first two Rangers years. He has $23 million owed to him over the next 4 years. $6.5,$6.5,$5 and $5. Waivers are usually 24 hours except for Saturday when the players clear on Monday.

You guys think we did this so soon cause we have a trade ready to go and we had to be cap compliant to get it done? Richards maybe?

Sather is tight with Redden's agent Don Meehan. Sather and Meehan discussed this situation in the summer. Brooks asked Meehan a few weeks ago if he has been in contact with any teams in Europe and Meehan refused to comment. Only problem with Europe is Redden's wife had a baby two days ago.

What's best for the team? The hypocracy. How about stepping down after TEN disasterous years at the helm.

btw - I am not so gleeful to see the situation created by the dreadful UFA signings. The distain for Redden borders on psychotic. Was he a bad signing? YES! Who signed him?

I for one wish him and his new addition well, even if I couldn't stand what he brought to the team from Day 1. Enjoy your family and wealth Wade. Hope you land on your feet somewhere.

So who said we should just get over it and deal with it? that Redden will be a Ranger for the duration of his contract???


Puck Daddy....


I know it's a difficult truth to wrap one's head around, but there's almost no way Wade Redden(notes) sets foot in Hartford this year, unless Madison Square Garden burns to the ground two hours before a scheduled game. The Rangers rumor mill, which always specializes in a particular brand of wishful thinking, heated up this summer as several emerging defensemen appeared poised to at least compete for a spot with the big club. This, many decided, was the year Redden's contract -- which has for so long hung around the club's neck like Coleridge's albatross -- got muscled out of the lineup and down to three years of bus-riding.

But this isn't going to be the year for Ryan McDonagh(notes) or Matt Gilroy(notes), at least not at Redden's expense. He's owed $6.5 million for each of the next four seasons, and while ownership might have been able to justify burying that much in the minors for one season, the term and money are both too long to stuff it in the minors.

Whether or not you find the idea repulsive (and you should), Redden is going to be a part of the Rangers' blue line for the rest of his comical contract. You may as well start dealing with it now.

Guess that shows how knowledgable that guy is haha. Maybe he should stick to predicting the hot stove fantasy picks.

Wish I could be more surprised. It's a shame you can't rework contracts but w/e he's crying to the bank with those millions so you can't exactly feel bad for him. Now he gets to enjoy the kid.He knew last year was his last year so having the kid was a tactical decision! Haha. Gl to him
