I swear I think people are just guessing what they think he might be without actually watching him.
i have watched him since day one, including the last few seasons on NHL/AHL duty.

yep, for a million bucks i think alot of teams would be interested

I don't, I have little doubt some teams would be interested in him as a 7th D who will ride the bench and fill in for an injured player, I just don't see a lot of teams being interested in him if they actually watched his play for anything more than that.

Guys like Kaberle and Komisarek who are routinely bashed on these boards are better than Redden.

My brother in law takes me to see the Whale every time I go to visit family in Connecticut when hockey season is ongoing. Last year when we went I kept an eye on him and he was bad, he was bad in the AHL, every time I watch him no matter what team I watch him on since 2007 always leaves me wondering what the heck happened to this guy?

For some reason I think he signs back with Ottawa though.

The place I'm thinking could use him most is somewhere like Edmonton. Winnipeg too.

When is he expected to be bought out and become UFA?

Redden buyout now complete. A decision on where he will resume his career likely made tomorrow. He has options. #TSN
Let the bidding war begin.

could the reason Redden was bad in the AHL be because he was disinterested? Honest question.. Because i remember him as a pretty damn good D-man haven't seen him play in so long i can't remember..

I Would take a chance on him... I think....

Wouldn't mind the Stars taking a shot at him for cheap, especially if it means Robidas is gone.

It was hilarious seeing McIlrath fix up Redden's errors in the playoffs last year.

Any team that signs him to a NHL contract is out to lunch. You're better off signing Shawn Belle

#CBJ among the clubs expected to extend an offer to free agent D Wade Redden, whose contract has been bought out by #NYR.

The Detroit Red Wings aren't going to make a play for unrestricted free agent defenseman Wade Redden.

There had been internal discussions about whether Redden, 35, would help bolster the blue line in the wake of losing Nicklas Lidstrom to retirement and Brad Stuart via trade, but ultimately, management decided to stick with what's already on the roster.

Can almost start an ex-Ranger squad with Dubinsky - Gomez - Anisinov - Prospal - JAM - Tyutin - Redden - Erixon (callup) on it...

No guarantees but Wade Redden may agree to terms with an NHL team as early as tonight. Gomez not likely tonight but in next day or so.

Sather gave Meehan permission to speak with other teams last week.

Gomez to anaheim makes sense.
I wouldn't mind the leafs signing Redden for a 1 year deal. Wouldn't mind not getting him though either.

How much of a shell of himself is Redden? Is he even a capable NHLer anymore?

Toronto has been clearing cap space for a couple of days in order to give Wade Redden another long term MEGA DEAL. Wade Redden = Jedi Master
THAT WOULD BE SOMETHING

Why not? You guys could sign Gomez long term...3-4 years. Wait 2 years or so, trade him back to MTL for Galchenyuk.

Remains to be seen. He's pretty damn slow though.

I'd say(according to his play in the ahl and translating..which is hard to do) he'd be a decent 7th on a good team, or a bottom pairing on a bad team.

Rumours are he hasn't trained much in years, and never really trained hard to begin with...he's getting up in age(turning 36 soon i think), and had a double hernia(which also helped in the decline of cheechoos career)...i would likely say someone signs him, and he may do ok for a short burst to prove himself again...but will ultimately suck and retire soon.

As for Gomez......thanks again Mr. Gainey.
This sums it up for me. When Sather signed him I said he would be our version of Alexi Yashin. It pretty much turned out that way. Thankfully Redden was a class act all the way & I wish him well. Hope he catches on with another team.

Haven't the Islanders claimed a few defensemen off of waivers over the last couple days?
