Will Wade Redden ever reach 1000 games

Sens fan here.

I was just checking the rosters and saw that Wade Redden currently in the AHL is at 994 NHL games.

I think hes having cap/contract issues but he should still have game 1000 shouldnt he?

Not going to reach it with us. Too far down the food chain. Want him back?

for as long as he is signed with the Rangers, he will forever be stuck at 994 games played.

If there is any amnesty buyout, I could see him being gone and maybe signing with a bottom feeder like NYI or EDM or CLB to get to 1000, but it's never going to happen with the Rangers.

There are way too many dmen higher up on the depth chart for Redden to ever play for the NYR again. By all accounts, he's happy with his mentor role in Hartford.

if they put in that buy out clause in the new CBA then yea Redden will be bought out, not against the cap and a team will give him a chance as a 3rd pairing Dman

weird part is if he was on Dallas I bet he would still be in the NHL since they could use that money for the cap floor. I think I heard Dallas offered 6 million a yr over the same term

If he decides to breach contract and become a UFA, maybe he will with another team.

Not with the Rangers.

He's been a good soldier in Hartford but Redden reaching 1000 games played means nothing to the Ranger organization.

Even if he does get bought out--I wouldn't bet the farm that even a bottom feeder is going to pick him up. He was slow even before he went to Hartford and that was two years ago. He's 34 now. His offense had disappeared. He doesn't play physical. However he's performed or helped out in the AHL--the comments about him being a 'pacer' seem to fit what he was doing in his last year at MSG. He couldn't or wouldn't lift his playing level--or push himself beyond his comfort zone. I don't know who would want him to be honest. AFAIC he's absolutely washed up.

If the new CBA has an amnesty/compliance buyout,Redden will be bought out. The early word was no compliance buyouts but if the NHL gets their one size fits all cap,then there have to be compliance buyouts. Brian Burke made mention of the one way contracts possibly counting against the cap in next CBA. The NHLPA wouldn't go for it last time. The Rangers and all of the teams need to be careful this summer. Tim Wharnsby and Elliotte Friedman mentioned this on the Hotsove 2 weeks ago. Redden got paid $13M in real $ and lost no $ to escrow to play in the AHL. He is still owed $10M in real money.

I hope he does. As others have said, it won't be with NYR, but I'm sure he could do a decent job as the 7th D on a weaker team.

From what I've seen this season, he has not been very good at all in CT (he also has the 2nd worst +/- of all defenders on the team), so he would need to step it up, but I think he could do it.

It'd be a nice milestone if he could, but he's simply not an NHL-calibre player anymore, and I don't think any team is going to use up a roster spot to allow him those 6 games.

The only teams that even vaguely have reason to are the Rangers, because he's in their organisation (not going to happen), and the Senators, as a thank you. Either way, sentimentality and a kind gesture are not going to be enough for a professional franchise with goals to meet every year.

Let's just agree that 994 is just as good as 1006 and congratulate Wade on that.

If he does, it won't be with NYR.

Rangers have made some horrible UFA signings over the years and he might be the worst. Drury was awful. Gomez not much better. Kamensky. Lindros was too banged up. Ditto Lafontaine. Fleury played well at times but he was a ticking time bomb who exploded on his own team as much as on opposing ones. Holik they expected too much of and Kasparaitis was getting on. Naslund--I'll give a lot of credit too--one mediocre season and he knew he didn't have it anymore and let us off the hook on his second season. Messier became a shell of what he was the second time around.

I'd rather go with Ron Harris even if he hasn't played in 30 years.

Not unless $6 million a year buys you an NHL team.

If there's an amnesty clause in the next CBA and a team like the Oilers want to take a flyer on him...sure...
