Canuck Surfer Posted August 6, 2013 Share Posted August 6, 2013 WR once score 50 NHL points in 65 games. Redden is a 6'2" 212 lb reasonably mobile two way defender, a capable passing puck mover with good hockey instincts. Scored 3 goals and 4 assists in eleven games with the Bruins. My thoughts are we would miss having a crease clearer (if you could call it that) if we signed Redden instead of Andrew Alberts as a depth defender. But we would also have a much better all round player? In the bigger picture Redden is possibly defined in today's world as a poor man's, or snake bitten, version of Alex Edler. It might allow us to move, presumably #23, one of our four $4.5 to $5 mill existing two way D. My perception is its great having so many two way guys. But it's at the expense of missing both a capable puck rushing D with puck skills and a real bone cruncher. To the point; we have a capable D which is neither feared for its physicality or its ability to spark the transition game. Redden would put us in a position to trade, to "re-set," which is something I believe MG owes Canuck fans! One way $850,000 deal? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
