Read: Wade Redden Has A Sour Taste

At ESPN.com, Pierre LeBrun caught up with Wade Redden who said that he has a “sour taste” in his mouth from how things with the Rangers turned out.

Redden said that he enjoyed his time in Hartford but that his goal is to return to the NHL.

He added that in the future he hopes that the new CBA will either make it harder to send players with big contracts down to the minors or to make it easier for teams to move those players and give them another chance to play in the NHL.

Redden could sign with the Whale but risks suspension without NHL pay if he gets injured down there before the season starts.
