I'd be surprised but I'm not stupid. Everyone and their mom saw this coming.

I am hoping this will be a good lesson for players about the dangers of trying to get overpaid. But it's more likely that players will just start demanding NMCs instead.

NHL or AHL, he's still getting paid $6.5 million per year. I don't see any "danger" in that. Just because he is overpaid doesn't mean he is bad. He'll get a solid contract with an NHL team when his current one is done.

Yeah you're probably right. I'm sure all players don't care about what league they play in. That is why NHL players are leaving for the big money in the KHL so often.

So Redden has a sub-par final 2 yrs in Ottawa and still Glen $ather gives him that contract. Anyone wanna tell me why they shouldn't be stuck with Wade ?

Because it's legal in the CBA that they can send him down? It's sort of like how the Kovalchuk contract is legal. As a Devils fans you should be the last people complaining when others use the CBA to their cap advantage.

$6,500,000.00 CAP HIT!

He will ONLY be picked up on re-entry waivers in my opinion ($3,250,000.00)

I would love to see Gauthier take him on re-entry waivers ONLY if Hamrlik and Spacek are off the books.

Markov - Redden
Gorges - Subban
Gill - O'Byrne

Wouldn't that put the Rags back over the cap? He's down there for the season.

Yup, no surprise at all. He's been quite a burden for a long time.

The Devil fans have short memories. McGillis,Matvichuk.Marshall.Malakhov.Mogilny. In the case of the latter two,first year of their SPC's didn't count when they were assigned to the AHL. Stay away from the players with the letter M. Lou sent those players to the AHL for cap relief and when another team does the same thing,they complain.

If the Devils can't trade Zubrus or Salavador,guess where they are going? Albany.

They won't be complaining then.

And now all the Ranger fans that previously complained about how the Devils got rid of Malakhov are all happy and partying. It's nice how your perception changes when it's your team.

i have a hard time believing that you would have told sather that you didnt want to make 6.5 million a year and opted to take 4 million a year instead. blaming the player for getting paid too much is ridiculous.

Is that why there were tons of people on these boards saying the Rangers won't do it?
