from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN, At this point, Wade Redden has pretty much seen it all.  Redden is locked out just like 700-odd other NHLers and facing nary a paycheck until the labor impasse is resolved.  Except that, well, Redden hasn’t played in the NHL in 2½ years.  Talk about adding insult to injury. If it didn't hurt his pride enough to be turfed in the AHL for two seasons, his contract too heavy for the New York Rangers to move, now he’s been dragged into a lockout involving a league he hasn’t sniffed since his last NHL game in April 2010.  Not sure there’s a more unique story in this lockout at this point.  "It is a pretty rare case, I guess," Redden told ESPN.com Thursday from Kelowna, B.C., his offseason home. "My mindset now is that hopefully it’s written into the new CBA where stuff like that won’t happen or make it harder to happen so you get a guy like out of that situation."  continued
