Rangers to Send Redden to Hartford?

Bruce Garrioch at the Ottawa Sun reports that Wade Redden could be on his way to Hartford soon...

"There has been talk the Rangers are going to place D Wade Redden on waivers and then send him to the their AHL affiliate in Hartford. There is nothing to stop the Rangers from doing that because Redden has a limited no-trade clause, but he doesn’t have a restrictive no-movement clause. Signed to a six-year, $39-million deal on July 1, 2007, the Rangers have tried to deal Redden, but haven’t been able to find any takers. Even if New York GM Glen Sather did want to deal Redden, he’d have to get a list from the defenceman of eight teams where he doesn’t want to go."

...while Redden is never going to be worth his contract, he has been solid since returning to the line-up after being a healthy scratch and the Rangers are playing too well to think Sather is going to shake-up the roster like that.

...the only way I see this happening is if the Rangers go into another tailspin.

makes sense to clear some cap, and maybe make a move for some offense.
