Rangers to Waiver Redden?

Bruce Garrioch at the Ottawa Sun reports...

"There is talk the Rangers might waive D Wade Redden at the start of next season and send him to the AHL's Hartford Wolf Pack to get his $6.5-million salary off the books. New York has tried to deal Redden, but nobody is willing to bite. He still has $32.5 million and five years left on his contract."

...don't tease me Bruce.

...the Redden signing, due to the contract length and amount, could be the worst in New York sports history.

Sather can't even do this can he? I'm pretty sure the Rangers would still take the cap hit even when he clears waivers and is sent down to Hartford.

Why would they still take the cap hit? Redden was under 32 when signed.

King Byrne you are right. I forgot about the over 35 year old rule that the NHL put in. However the Rangers do have to pay a percentage of that contract against the cap according to the cap rules.

What an absolute joke this signing has become the incompetence is sickening
