With the new accelerated compliance buyout in mind, the New York Rangers placed defenceman Wade Redden on unconditional waivers on Wednesday for the purpose of buying him out.
Redden has played the last two seasons with the Connecticut Whale of the AHL but according to his agent Don Meehan, he would prefer to be playing in the NHL.
"Yes, (he) is anxious to resume play in the NHL," said Meehan on TSN Radio 1050's Cybulski and Company. "If the opportunity affords itself he'd very much like that."
The new policy adopted on Tuesday allows teams to buy out one player with at least a $3 million average salary and incur a full cap hit this season, but no cap hit in the future.
If Redden clears waivers on Thursday at Noon et, the Rangers will exercise their one accelerated compliance buyout.

The Detroit Red Wings want to improve their defense and are looking at Wade Redden as a possible solution.

They took a chance on Commodore last year and they need D even more this year. I could see them definitely taking a chance. A return to Ottawa isn't out of the question either.

I wonder what his contract value is.

His AHL stats are fine: 12 goals, 62 points in 119 games, -9. 7 points in 16 playoff games.

He's 35, probably wanting a 1 year contract to prove himself. It's a 48 game season (obv.), so there's very little risk in signing him for a team with cap space and contract space.

He's 3 1/2 years away from his successful Senator years, and 2 1/2 years away from a 26 point season.

He hasn't complained at all about being an AHLer, which makes me think he is a character guy.

He has the size 6'2, 210.. has anybody seen him skate lately? Is he quick enough?

Honestly, depending what he wanted, he might be an upgrade on the 7th spot over Andrew Alberts, and Vandermeer can already replace the toughness that Alberts brought.

I am curious to see what he'll be offered.

I have always liked Redden and think MG should atleast talk to his agent on a one year deal,plus Gomez's agent and get them both for one year as they will be playing for a contract next year.

I could see the OIlers, Wings, Sharks, possibly Philly to give this a look.

We won't get him, other teams have more need. Certainly no shortage of YouTube highlights from his AHL team last year, The Whale, though.

When there are plenty of teams who would use him in the top 6, why would he go to a team that already has 9 NHL defencemen on it?

Because we're trading Edler and Ballard with Luongo to get all the first round picks - haven't you been reading the threads around here?

But seriously, Ottawa with Cowan out would be my first guess, but Detroit and others will pursue him as well.

I see him ending up with either Ottawa or Detroit. It's nice to see him get a second chance.

Apparently he has had drug/alcohol problems and has been to rehab multiple times. But who knows, maybe he's clean now?
Did anyone see him play in the AHL last year? If he can play anything like his old days then he'd be a solid 7th D man for us.
I wouldn't want him to replace Tanev though, so unless Ballard bombs or there's an injury, I'd sit him in the press box.

I bet now that Detroit has shown interest, the people calling Redden overrated will now want him on the Canucks.
