A Defense In The Red (den)

Everyone should head over to The Rangers Tribune, as Nick Montemago details the evolution of our current defensive signings and how that probably means Wade Redden is taking a trip north to Hartford, or whatever club we align ourselves with....

Here's a taste:
First off, the Blueshirts currently have approximately $7.89 million in cap space, partly due to the escalator that was approved by the NHLPA a few weeks ago. This is before RFA defensemen Marc Staal and Dan Girardi are re-signed, however, and that is a main priority at the moment. Assuming each player gets the money they want, most of that $7.89 million will be gone rather quickly. What does that mean? Well, it means the Rangers will again be very limited in what they can do as far as roster adjustments go throughout the upcoming season and at the deadline. Waiving Redden would obviously change that. 
Poor, poor Wade....don't worry kid, my mother always said don't marry for money, divorce for money.  Slats knows all about it.   Forget about making lemonade, as you'll always be our' lemon in Blue'.

Any offer of 'tickets at cost' is exactly that -- I have season tickets and will sell them for what I paid --- so no mark-ups.
