Rangers waive Wade Redden
The New York Rangers on Saturday waived defenseman Wade Redden, who signed a six-year, with the team two years ago.

They announced the decision during the morning skate prior to Saturday night’s preseason game at New Jersey.

Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather said the move, which removes Redden’s reported $6.5 million salary cap hit and gets the Rangers under the cap, will give younger players an opportunity to make the roster.

"I told him at the end of last year that if he didn't have a great camp this was going to happen," Sather said of Redden.

If Redden clears waivers, he can be sent to the Rangers’ AHL affiliate, the Hartford Wolf Pack. The Rangers’ website reported that Redden said he will take a few days to think his situation over before deciding whether to accept the potential assignment to Hartford or try to find a job elsewhere.

Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
