I don't think everyone realizes the ramifications of dumping Redden in Hartford. It's already hard to get FA's to come here over other places...do you think Sather didn't want to overpay Brian Campbell before he did Redden? You put someone like Redden, Gomez, or any vet with a 1 way contract in the minors and you pretty much tell every FA that comes here that you can sign whatever contract you want, if we get bored with your contract and want someone else we'll just bury you in the minors.
On Redden--then probably we won't have any cap space to sign any free agents.
As for who to move: We'll start with Captain Klutz (except he has an NMC and can deny it), Redden--(if anyone will take the contract--and ditto for Gomez, maybe Roszival, Kalinin for sure (I'm pretty sure he's not going to be re-signed), Voros. Possibility of Prucha, Betts, Mara (impending UFA's), Reitz, Sjostrom. I'm not sure if I'd dump Dawes. I'd want something pretty decent in return for him anyway.
