Sometimes things do not work out as planned by either the team or the player.

No one could have expected the dramatic fall from grace that Redden took. He wasn't a terrible player before they signed him. He just lost his ability to play the game. As such the Rangers did what EVERY TEAM can and has done with players that were no longer capabl of playing in the NHL, they sent him to the minors.

The punishment that the Rangers suffered through is that it was a one way contract and have paid him over 12 million to play minor league hockey.

They should allow one buyout per team, per year. And NOT have it count against the cap.
Horrible idea, I personally think 2 buyouts is already one too many. 1 would have been enough.

PS: As for the whole Redden thing...look how much Gomez fell off, we've been playing him ever since we got him. It's called class and respect, an organization should not bury their players in the minors only to make room for another expensive player imo.
