Redden on the Block?

Perhaps feeling a crunch under the National Hockey League's new salary cap, the Ottawa Senators may be looking to deal defenceman Wade Redden, according to a report in the Ottawa Citizen.
With the Senators facing the prospect of having Zdeno Chara and Marian Hossa joining Redden as unrestricted free agents following this season, the Sens might focus on keeping Chara and Hossa while landing a package of younger -- and cheaper -- players in return for the 28 year-old Redden.
The paper says that the Edmonton Oilers were one possible trading partner, before they landed Chris Pronger from St. Louis, and the Sens would like to get a similar kind of package that the Blues got (Eric Brewer along with prospects Jeff Woywitka and Doug Lynch) in exchange for Pronger.
Redden is slated to earn $3.72-million this season, but would figure to get more on the open market as a free agent next year.
Some names the Citizen mentions, as part of packages for Redden, include Florida defenceman Mike Van Ryn, Los Angeles defenceman Lubomir Visnovsky and perhaps even Detroit centre Pavel Datsyuk.
