The training camp roster has not yet been announced, but Newsday has confirmed that defenseman Wade Redden, 34, who was waived on Sept. 25 last year and then assigned to the AHL, will not be on it.Can't say this is all that surprising and even if he had been invited realistically what would his chances of making the roster be? Honestly, if Redden were invited it would likely be more of a distraction than anything else. There's also the risk that if he were to get injured during camp that his salary would count against the camp.
I still think that Redden is still player that should still be in the NHL, however he's not worthy of that crazy contract. There are at least a handful of teams that Redden could at least be the bottom pairing defenseman on.
