No it would be beacsue the season is over. The question to be answered is whether reds would be treated like a player who was not under an nhl contract, signed in europe then tried to come back(waivers) or whether, since he violated his contract by leaving, he would be treated as a holdout player who has decided to honor his contract(no waivers). To me the answer is clear and I suspect for the nhl the answer will be the same.
