We'll be fine with Redden on the cap this year. Dolan pays him whatever he's owed to sit and watch the games at home. We buy him out in the summer, and sign McD, Stepan, and Hagelin.
Well, if we are paying him on the cap, why wouldn't we just keep him as the 7th D-man?

If Redden was in the plans,he would be skating with the rest of the Rangers players getting ready for the season. The Rangers had the NYU hockey club coach running practice today and he ran a Torts like practice. Torts told him what to do. Torts is not allowed on the ice. He can't talk to the players until the lockout is lifted.
The CBA prohibits injured players from being bought out. It was that way in the 2005 CBA and it is the same way in the 2013 CBA. There are no injury settlements in the NHL.
Redden can terminate his contract or he can stay home collecting his $2.6M salary waiting for the amnesty buyout in the summer.
I don't even understand why this is a discussion. Wade doesn't sit for a year - he sits for 5 or so months. Then he gets bought out, works out like a fiend over the summer, gets an invite to someone's camp just like Nedved did to ours two years ago (or whenever that was).
That's how he gets his shot - he's got tons of dough in the bank and the ability to give it one more go with no pressure and no strings attached.
