Note: Wade Redden Won’t Be A Ranger Again

In the NY Post, Larry Brooks writes that if there is no amnesty buyout in the new CBA, Wade Redden would be sent to Hartford and the Rangers would manage their team with $6.5 million in dead cap space.

Brooks writes “They are not adding him to the roster.”

The NHL’s offer to the players included a clause saying “we propose that to facilitate more trades and create increased flexibility in managing Cap Room, Clubs be allowed to allocate portions of a contract’s Cap charge (and related salary obligations) in the context of a Player Trade. This will facilitate additional Player movement and trades between teams as they manage their respective Caps and Payroll Range obligations.”
