Session IDs created by CMS system

I'm working with some sites that have a custom CMS. When you enter a new URL for a 301 redirect, apparently a session ID is created, and I started noticing a lot of these IDs in Google Analytics coming up as landing pages for the sites. Is it worth it to just leave the crappy URLs well enough alone and focus on other on-site elements, or should I implement the canonical link element and hope that it works? Right now there's no way to not create the session IDs upon redirecting pages.

If you can implement the canonical correctly, that might work - you can also go into GWT and tell it to ignore those session IDs, and also write a filter in GA to strip em off.

you might also consider sending a session cookie with that response and redirecting to a url with the session id parameter stripped off.
