According to Arthur Staple in Newsday, Wade Redden plans to attend the Rangers training camp in September.
Redden still has three more seasons left on his contract worth $6.5 million per season.
Redden has said repeatedly that money isn’t an issue to him.
This isn’t a big deal. Redden will go to training camp with the Rangers, but the issue will be what happens after they place him on waivers to send him down to Hartford. If he refuses the move and voids his contract, he loses the money but gets a chance to be a free agent and play again in the NHL. Otherwise he can go back to Hartford and be a leader for the young players down there.
