Wade Redden helping develop our D prospects

Obviously drafting well, good coaching, but is Wade being in Hartford playing a role in all our young D just stepping in and acclimating so well to the big team?

I'd say yes somewhat... he's helping them to know the system more.. I like that, if that's what he's doing

If it's contributing to the Pack sending these kids who shine it's probably worth every penny

give the guy credit for going down and helping out...........I hope the buy out clause is allowed soon so Wade can have a shot as a 6th Dman in the NHL

Does anyone know this for a fact or is this just speculation? While he was with the Rangers he wasn't just old and slow like Jay Wells. He was constantly out of position and making stupid plays. Maybe he's teaching them how to live on their own and not get into trouble, but no one mentions him for head coaching vacancies yet.

Erm, he couldn't be a 6th d-man on any team except for maybe the Islanders.

He's that bad. He's not even the best d-man in Hartford. Bickel is quite a bit better than him. So was Erixon. Wade is just bad.

He's obviously a leader in Hartford. He came to town with a good attitude, not the Grinch-like behavior of one Patrick Rissmiller.

Gomez brought in mcd and a piece used for prust
Drury mentored dubi nd cally
Redden mentoring young D to help them acclimate to life of a pro

These contracts killed us but they all have a silver lining i suppose

Only thing Redden can teach those guys is how not to end your career and how to act like a professional.

The coaches and beat writers have repeatedly praised Wade for how he has tried to help our younger defensive prospects in the last 2 seasons. I have heard some praise from some of the young guys as well. I'm glad to see Wade is trying to be a great teammate in Hartford.

THIS.

If he keeps a good attitude and plays a leadership role for those younger guys the Rangers net a positive in the end.

The ultimate irony, and yet more proof that the hockey universe does indeed move in strange ways. Maybe Bryz has a good take on this.

Act like a pro.... not to be overlooked. You always here about how hard it is to adjust to the NHL for these young guys. Our D prospects have been on the money so far...

As for ending his career... I never thought Wade was as horrible as some believe. Just not worth the 6 mill and the pressure that came with his degrading skill : toi just snowballed into a bad situation.

Maybe he should end up on the Isles. Come full circle...

Regardless whatever the atmosphere is in Hartford they are doing the NY Rangers right. These kids are to man looking solid.

God Bless him... that is a pro... and really a man of character.

Back when McDonagh first came up, this was in Gross' Ranger Rants:

"But McDonagh pointed to former Ranger Wade Redden, buried at Connecticut for salary cap and performance reasons during training camp, as one of the biggest helps to his development this season. Not only has Redden been a frequent on-ice defense partner for McDonagh but the two are also road roommates.

Hes a great guy, a great player for that team down there, McDonagh said. Hes toward the end of his career and to go through what he did, he could have a different attitude. But he has an incredible attitude, staying out late on the ice. I ask him a lot of questions. Hes probably sick of me. Hes helped me a lot. A lot of mental things, too.

I doubt that things are any different this year. Having watched Redden his whole career, I was extremely skeptical that he would bounce back when he signed here. But, I have no doubt he's a professional and is helping the prospects in Hartford.

He has Nothing to do with anybody's progress.

He was the worst defenseman I have ever seen play regularly for an extended period of times for the New York Rangers in 35 years of watching. Regardless of salary.

His leadership was nill when he was here and now he is some minor league mentor ? Give it a break.

Not to get into a pissing contest, but I've been a Ranger fan for over 50 years, and seen some pretty horrible defensemen. As bad as he was, and he was terrible, I've seen many who were a lot worse.

Give the guy credit for what he has done. Listen to what other players have said. He could have gone to the Whale and just mailed it in and collect his 6 million a year. He hasn't. Having a guy like him in the AHL is very important for the development of our young D. We should appreciate the impact he is having.

So you are calling McD a liar based on the post above?

Most likely, Redden barely dresses down there, seems more like a coach rather than player now IMO

Huh? He has played in 25 of 29 games down there. I believe the games he missed were due to injury. He also plays with Jared Nightingale on the top pairing.

As much as fans hated him, I've always liked Redden. We signed him when he was exiting his prime. He's taking the demotion like a professional and our prospects have cited him as a huge help in the development process. Wouldn't be surprised to see him behind the bench as a coach one day.
