Found January 17, 2013 on HockeyBuzz:
Hi...Short blog for today. Sorry. I have a valid excuse. I got carried away with fantasy hockey leagues tonight. It got so bad that my wife, in protest, started playing Whitney Houston songs really, really loud to punish me for the six-hours straight of drafting. Celine Dion; Whitney Houston; Mariah Carey - I hate that type of "music". A bunch of screaming for no reason. Poor wife, the joke...

Rangers buy out Redden's contract

The New York Rangers are buying out the final two seasons of disappointing defenseman Wade Redden's contract. The Rangers made the move Thursday, one day after placing Redden on waivers.

Uhh... Is Wade Redden Now An Islander?

The New York Islanders have already spent the last week or so adding everyone else's scrap bits, claiming three players off of waivers with Tim Conolly being reported as a fourth. With Wade Redden having officially been bought out by the Rangers, he is free to negotiate - and sign - with other NHL teams. And a very curious addition has been made to the Islanders official website...

Red Wings mid-day news: pondering adding Redden, Helm/Samuelsson status updates, Mrazek the All-Star

Paul already posted this in KK hockey, but it's worth repeating for TMR readers: the New York Rangers have placed Wade Redden on waivers with the intention of buying his contract out, and as the Detroit Red Wings must avail themselves of all their options to attempt to bolster their defense, the Free Press's Helene St. James reports that the Wings are at least considering...

Jan Levine: Redden, Gaborik and Kreider

Wade Redden and the Buyout: It must be some kind of cosmic arrangement that two players signed to insanely ridiculous contracts by GM Glen Sather are forcing the NHL and NHLPA to sit and revisit a concept that should have been part of the just ratified CBA. Scott Gomez and Wade Redden are each being forced - and I use that term very loosely - to sit on the sidelines and collect...

Jan Levine: Redden, Richards, Power Play

Will make this blog a short one and hope to get a season preview up before tomorrow's game, real life/work permitting. Redden: In a move that surprised no one, Wade Redden passed through waivers and was bought out. The end result of that move is that the Rangers have an additional $5.6 million in dead cap space to go along with the $1.6 million from Chris Drury's buyout...

Eklund: Wade Redden Signs With the Blues

Really smart pickup by Armstrong and Hitchcock....more to come.

If Detroit Red Wings Choose to Upgrade Their Defense, Wade Redden Could be the Perfect Fit

The Detroit Red Wings, fresh off an offseason which saw the team lose two steady defenders in Nicklas Lidstrom and Brad Stuart, might have identified the blue line as their biggest area of need for an upgrade quickly this season. In recent months, flashy back end names such as Keith Yandle, Jay Bouwmeester and Zach Bogosian have come up in rumors. Each one of those defenders, however...

NHLPA might take issue with Scott Gomez & Wade Redden buyout situations

As mentioned yesterday, both Wade Redden and Scott Gomez are widely expected to be bought out at the end of this season. Both players are being told to go home, sit, and get paid for it -- the NHL's teams can't buyout injured players. While this is a smart strategy for the New York Rangers and Montreal Canadiens, the NHLPA is taking issue with two of their players being told...

Chip McCleary: The NHL, NHLPA, and the new CBA: Making it up as they go along (again)

As I was working on my 2013 Blues Preview on Tuesday, I noticed that there was sudden chatter over an agreement between the NHL and NHLPA regarding compliance buyouts and the situations involving Wade Redden and Scott Gomez. Instead of both guys being sent home for the season but getting paid in full so that their respective teams could buy them out at season’s end, now both...
