But I'd still rather see Chara go before Redden. I know hardly anyone thinks this way but I just like Redden more and think his game is more suited to our team.
Chara is such a beast, You probably won't find another player similiar to Chara for awhile in the NHL. It's hard to say whether or not "Zdeno Chara JR" (TB's 30th choice in 2005 draft) will pan out the same. Sure they have similiar statistics (height/weight/origin) but I doubt he will be the anomaly Chara is when he is developed. Which is why we should keep him for as long as possible.
