I don't think the season will be abbreviated to 50 games. The 94/95 lockout lasted until the end of January and they still had a 45 game season. At this point, *if* the lockout can be settled in the next 3-4 weeks, I see a 60+ game season.
With all the Dmen that we have in the system I don't think they would be worried about losing Reese to waivers. He's looked good in WBS but I don't think he's any better than Lovejoy.
