Redden may leave Rangers

I have not posted since this horrific signing. I also gave up my tickets. The Daily News states Redden may walk from the Rangers at year end

After the game, Redden told the Daily News that when this season ends, and he tries to chart a course back to the NHL, he will consider walking away from the remaining three years and $16.5 million on his Rangers contract.

"That's one of the options," Redden said. "There's that, there's coming back here, there's going to Europe. I don't know. It's a lot of money, but at the same time, I don't want to - it's only a short time that you have a career, so you want to be at the highest level as long as you can. Obviously, the money isn't the No. 1 thing."

Spector is reporting that has already been reported. Nothing new. Redden will talk to Meehan and they'll go from there. The scouting reports on Redden haven't been great. One scout called him a "pacer". They call horses that. When horses can't run,they sell them to the guy in the black van who makes them chop meat which is shipped off to Europe. It was a feature on HBO Real Sports a few years ago. Redden will probably be in Europe too.

$6.5M big ones next season. CBA ends.

That would be great for the Rangers possible summer cap issues. $6.5 million extra to work with to re-sign the RFA's and possibly go after Richards, since New York is one of three possible destination's he'd like to go to.

Better off signing him for free then giving up assets after that report (if true, of coarse) came out yesterday.

I suspect he's at his highest level. He may not realize it though. Statistically he's a -11 while someone like Valentenko is a +10. Obviously those two aren't paired together but it should tell him something.

Anyway welcome back bathgate.

Thatīs just a really good news about Dredden. Itīs nice to hear that he wanne leave to play elsewhere and walk away from the money. Itīs just awesome. I really hope he does so and weīll have more cap to re-sign Cally, Dubi, Anisimov (which have the most priority in my eyes) and some others like Richards and another sniper like Hemsky or some of his caliber.

I doubt it will happen. That would increase my respect for Redden though. It would still be below zero, but at least it would be a higher negative number.

I doubt it is true, but if it does happen, I very well may break down into tears of joy.

It's always refreshing to hear a professional athlete say that it's not about the money. We'll see if his actions follow.

I don't see him giving up the money.

Not yet, anyway. Maybe when he's down to 1 year left he will but not now.

Definitely but no matter what you really have to be a moron to walk away from what he's making no matter what the situation. That's "I have enough money for the rest of my life" cash he's talking about walking away from.

The Rangers gave him the contract...so it would be hard to be critical of him or any player for that matter to not play it to the end . It is not the fault of Redden that he got a big contract while his skills started to decline ...that rests clearly on Sather's shoulders .

There is simply no way he will ever play an NHL game again at his current cap hit. I'm sure him and his agent realize that. I seriously doubt anyone would take a chance on him at half his cap hit. Not that it is even an option since the Rangers would never put him on re-entry waivers.

If Redden truly believes he can still play in the NHL (we should all hope he does) then he has to walk from the remaining three years on his contract. There is actually a fourth option that Redden didn't mention. Pray that there is an amnesty buyout in the next CBA.

Man if Redden walked away from his contract and Drury retired, the Rangers would have an additional $13.5 million in summer cap space. Probably not going to happen.

It actually might be a good thing if we don't have that much Cap space to use because of the slim picking available...Sather might get caught up in the excitement again .

Dolan: "Sather, what do you mean, 'our $6 million dollar defenseman walked away from his contract?' and also, what the hell is a defenseman? Whatever it is, here's $6 million to go out and buy another one"

So there is a chance we can reunite Drury and his Pizzeria next season!

I don't think there is any harm if we call up Redden so he would go out with a bang. Maybe he will even help us in the playoff run.

Redden and Drury leaving this organization at the same time at the end of the year, would be the best thing to happen to this organization since 94.

I think I'll have to pray to the hockey gods every night for it.

Maybe he can be a "scout" with Naslund over in Europe?

I don't think Slats has it in for this guy, nor should he. The Rangers will do everything possible to try and see this through to a win/win for both parties

Sounds like he wants to play in the NHL. Not sure how he just walks away from a contract and gets to play for another team.

$8M
$8M
$6.5M
$6.5M
$5M
$5M

$39M

Europe wasn't an option this season because his wife was ready to give birth. Europe next season. Rangers still pay him $6.5M. Compliance buyout is a possibility in 2012 but since the CBA expires in September of 2012,not sure how that would work IF a new CBA is agreed upon in September. Redden may want to play again in the NHL but can he play in the NHL? Sheldon Souray wants to play in the NHL too but every scout who has seen him play thinks Souray is done. Bad scouting reports on Reds too. Does Redden want to forfeit $16.5M for a 1 year contract for less than $1M? Play another season under the current contract in Europe and see what happens with the CBA. If there's a new CBA in the summer of 2012,compliance buyout. Rangers buy him out and he collects 66% of the remaining $10M over 2 years. Compliance buyouts are over the term of the contract. Not twice the term.
