Well, so far anyway. Granted we're one game into the season, but I loved the way Wade Redden played last night.
By the way, Ottawa won the opener 4-3 in overtime, with Dany Heatley scoring the tying and winning goals. Keep it up and you might earn that $7.5M, Heater!
Back to Redden; two fights? Hell of a way to start a year. Especially since he came pretty darn close to winning both of them. Good for you, sir. Along with two fights, official stats give him one hit, although he had more than that. He also had two blocked shots in 22:11 of ice time.
If his play continues, I hope he's willing to sign a contract similar in term and figure to Chris Phillips' 3-year, $10.5M deal. I also kind of hope he doesn't have to fight to many more fourth-liners, but you've got to do what you've got to do.
