Buzz: Teams Were Interested in Wade Redden

According to Tim Wharnsby on Hockey Night in Canada, two teams looked into the idea of bringing in Wade Redden on re-entry waivers this season.

Wharnsby noted that Redden won’t get paid next season if there is a lockout, but he and Elliotte Friedman say that the next CBA may have a clause in it that prevents players like Redden from being sent to the minors.

If, like there was in 2005, an amnesty clause where teams can buy out a player without salary cap ramifications, Redden is likely to be the Rangers choice.
