Redden, Rozsival May Lead to Loss of Heikkinen

Larry Brooks at the New York Post says the Rangers' decision to keep Wade Redden and Michal Rozsival on the roster and in the lineup every day may drive Hartford defenseman Ilkka Heikkinen back overseas when his contract expires at the end of the season...

"Rest assured the physical defenseman with offensive instincts who received praise from coach John Tortorella during a seven-game trial run in December, will receive offers of substantially more guaranteed money from the KHL, which, of course, he would be foolish not to accept."

...the 'Albatross Twins' strike again.

...it is amazing how hard headed Sather is to sacrifice the future of the franchise just so he can somehow save face. Which he isn't.

Brooks also says that if the Hurricanes make defensemen Joni Pitkanen or Tim Gleason available the Rangers would be very interested.

Couldn't agree more, why Redden is still on this roster is beyond me. Send him to Hartford, buy him out, do something. Admit the signing was a mistake, until that is done this team will stink. That game last night against the Coyotes was brutal.
