Lee recalled, Redden out?

The Ottawa Senators today recalled defenceman Brian Lee, who just returned from injury, from the Binghamton Senators today. According to TSN.ca, Lee "will play tonight" against the Buffalo Sabres, but Wade Redden is a game-time decision after suffering an injury when he tripped himself and smashed face-first into the boards.

Either coach Bryan Murray knows that Redden won't play, or he has been planning to insert Lee in place of Luke Richardson. I assume, however, that it's a measure to replace Reds in the lineup. Which is appropriate, because Lee will be expected to replace--at least partially--the loss of Redden in the off-season.

I am now 99.9% certain that Redden won't be back next year, so I'm just going to assume that Lee will take his spot. Or Andrej Meszaros will take Redden's spot, and Lee will jump into Meszy's role.
