RUMOR MILL

Sunday - January 10th

While the Rangers are monitoring the Pierre-Luc Dubois situation in Columbus, the cost for acquiring him would be high says Larry Brooks in theNew York Post.

He suggests it'll take someone like Kaapo Kakko, Alexis Lafreniere or K'Andre Miller...plus.

Defenseman Wade Redden will not be playing for New York this season

Waived Redden
Posted by Toby Ivey ≡ 4:51:51 PM - September 27, 2010

In the Summer of 2008 Rangers GM Glen Sather made one of the biggest gambles, and ultimately biggest mistakes when he signed Wade Redden to a six year $39M contract.

Two years on and the Rangers have finally admitted that they made a mistake, and have reassigned - the subject of today's Rangers Countdown profile - Wade Redden to the AHL.

Player Profile
Perhaps the only ones surprised that Wade Redden didn't perform up to his contract in New York would have to be those responsible for scouting and signing him, specifically Sather.

Nowhere could you find anything except for shock, incredulity and surprise when the terms of the deal were announced back in July of 2010. Even factoring in the tendency for many pundits to take shots at Sather and the Rangers, it was still a relatively unprecedented even to this day.

Coming off two sub-par seasons with the Senators, and at 31, Redden hit the jackpot by becoming a free agent just when the demand for defensemen was at it's highest. Several years of increasing cap money had given GMs, including Sather, almost free reign in terms of escalating salaries back beyond their pre-lockout levels.

Signed to be the quarterback on the power play, and the go-to guy on defense, Redden looked slow and indecisive almost from the very first day - the goal in the season kickoff in Prague aside.

He was frequently got caught flat footed, as opposition forwards skated past him, and was unable to get his previously useful shot through traffic onto the net. The first year of his contract, he would've had trouble at times making the roster if it hadn't been for his contract and previous accomplishments.

Last season he steadied his defensive play somewhat, electing to play more conservatively and ultimately becoming probably the league's most expensive second pair d-man.

It wasn't pretty, but at least the damage was largely mitigated, and to some extent he could be relatively steady as a player down the order. But the contract was still a problem.

Exiting the season last year, the Rangers coaching and management warned that he was likely to be sent down if he didn't have a strong camp. They then proceeded to add salary as if Redden was already no longer in the calculation, despite protestations to the contrary.

Over this past weekend they made it official, placing him on waivers, and ultimately assigning him to Hartford today.

Redden will now have to decide what he wants to do. If he hopes to again play in the NHL, then his only course will be to refuse the assignment to the AHL and make the remainder of his contract void. He could then attempt to sign on with another team.

If he elects this path, then he'll be forfeiting up to $23M in guaranteed salary that the Rangers still owe him, which he'd earn if he finished out the four years playing for the AHL affiliate.

Alternatively he could consider playing in Europe, and the Rangers would pay the difference between what he earns there and his NHL contract, but with a newborn baby, that seems like an unlikely scenario.

At this stage it looks most likely that he will indeed play for Hartford, we'll just have to wait and see how it all pans out.

2009-10 Statistics
Team: New York Rangers (NHL)
Stats: 2 goals, 12 assists and 27 penalty minutes in 75 games

Prediction
Team: Hartford Wolf Pack (AHL)
Stats: 8 goals, 24 assists 32 penalty minutes in 70 games

Trivia
Redden was drafted by the Islanders, but traded before he had played for them. He was sent to Ottawa along with goaltender Damian Rhodes in exchange for Don Beaupre and future Rangers Bryan Berard and Martin Straka.
