Redden@$800k vs Barker@$700k

It seems many are praising the signing of Redden and criticizing the signing of Barker, who is the better signing?

easily Redden

the only reason I was against giving him a roster spot on the Wings is because it would have probably meant waiving Kindl(who i'm not all that high on but still wouldn't wanna just waive)

if Barker was on the team i'd probably literally have nightmares just thinking about it

Redden by a country mile.

Cam Barker Scoring Chances
Quote:
To label Barker a disappointment is faulty. He's been sub-replacement level for his entire career, and that hasn't changed in Edmonton. Regardless of draft pedigree, he's just not an NHL player.
He was seriously outplayed by Theo Peckham.

Redden should be playing the ECHL.

We already know Barkers sucks. Still interested to see how Redden does back in the NHL.

This was the argument I was going to use. We already know that Barker is not an NHL player, however we haven't seen what Redden can do with a spot on an NHL roster in a while. There's a chance that he could be much more motivated and be an important piece for St. Louis this year.

Not even close, of course Barker, the following reasons confirm this:

Barker is taller
Barker weighs more
Barker was signed by the Canucks, and the Canucks have swept the Blues twice - Redden's new team
Barker is younger
Barker had 7 more points than Redden the last two seasons combined
Redden played for the Senators
Barker is probably related to Bob Barker

Redden may or may not still have it.

Barker never had it.

Redden wins.

That's what I voted for...

Should have been an option "too close to care"

I say Redden but I don't think the Barker signing was necessarily "bad"

They take literally zero risk and give him only 700k... he's depth if there's a few injuries. Nothing wrong with that IMO unless he's keeping a more promising player out of the lineup due to contract cap.

I wouldn't pick Barker to play on my team in a pickup game on an outdoor rink!

Redden has personal issues that I wouldn't want anywhere near the Canucks dressing room.

Even as of today, Redden has way more upside than Barker

Considering that Barker is being overpaid by about 700K I would think the answer to this question is pretty obvious.

Neither belong in the NHL. Barker also happens to think the game in a particularly impaired manner, so I suppose Redden is the better player.

I'm glad that Redden went west so I can at least root for him. I don't think that he has much in the tank left at this point though. Good luck Redden.
