Interesting conversation Leafs Lunch had with Ottawa GM John Muckler. Muckler was asked what are the plans to sign Redden and Chara, both UFAs at the end of the year. Muckler said if it just comes down to money, he probably will not be able to sign both of them. But if they want to play for a good organization, keep on winning and allow their careers to grow, then thy possibility remains that he could sign both.
I am sure there are a few teams that will offer these two defensemen a very good contract, one which Ottawa will not be able to match.
Watching this playout in the upcoming months will be interesting.
