Yes. Demoted and devaluing himself for his next contract.

Imaging being in his shoes when negotiating.

"Oh no, Sather is offering me so much money...maybe I should ask for less so I don't get buried in the minors if I don't live up to it!?"

Well it all depends on how you look at it. For example just before the lockout began New York decided not to assign his contract to the AHL. I guess they were going to let him play in the NHL afterall.

(Not lines, just throwing names out)

Carl Gunnarsson - Dion Phaneuf
Jake Gardiner (INJ) - Cody Franson
John Michael Liles - Mike Komisarek
Morgan Rielly - Mike Kostka
Mark Fraser - Korbinian Holzer
Wade Redden

That's a lot of names in the mix currently. Not to mention another NHL experience player on the farm in Mike Mottau.
I would play anyone in your top 4 lines listed over Redden. Give a guy who's actually earned the spot a chance like Kostka.

I don't really mind, it's about on par with the Mike Mottau signing anyway.

Er, why? Hasn't Redden been absolute garbage for a while now?

1x1 Go for it Nonis. Worst case scenario we bury him again.

Ha!! "Sather is offering so much money". It was more the agent asking for the sky, and negotiated down. It's his fault for sucking the big one and getting stuck in the minors. But he still got paid same as if he'd play in the NHL, so no skin off his nose. Actually played against inferior and younger talent, didn't have to try as hard to not get killed by guys like Lucic.

Good enough to be team captain, but probably was not going full bore but who knows for sure?

If Nonis is a genius and everything Burke isn't, this must be a great move if it's something he's considering. Clearly, Burke would never have had the guts to go for Redden but, man, that Nonis, he's light years beyond Burke in his creativity and thinking.

If the Leafs do this, then Nonis will clearly be the garbage man people are calling him, but not for the current reasons they are saying it.

Kinda intriguing. Not sold on the idea, but not exactly against it either.

You think Redden regrets playing so well prior to rightfully signing that huge contract since it has impacted his ability to make more in the future?

He's a free wallet, Burke liked those. If he doesn't work out he didn't cost us any picks or players.

The last time I saw Redden regularly was when he was with the Senators, and he was great for that team. Unfortunately that was a long time ago.

Why would we do this? We're clearing roster spots for the young guys to play then we sign a guy who can't even make the Rangers? Doesn't make sense when we have extra d men as it is.

I think it's a free wallet and if it happens im cool with it. Makes no sense, but i'd do it. On the other hand It probably wont happen
