Redden In Demand

from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,

An NHL source said yesterday that Panthers GM Jacques Martin—a former coach of Redden with the Senators—is going to take a hard run at signing the veteran defenceman off the open market.

The Panthers’ top priority in the off-season is signing a puck-moving defenceman and Redden, who struggled last year as the Senators’ highest-paid player, fits the bill.

The Panthers won’t be alone in their pursuit of Redden, who will likely have to take a cut anyway to sign with another NHL club, although only to the $5-million range. It’s believed the Blackhawks, Canucks, Predators, Flyers and, possibly the Maple Leafs have an interest in Redden.
