one way contracts vs two way contracts

I've been getting a lot of conflicting information about this and was wondering if somebody could help me out.

I've heard a lot of talk about one way and two way contracts. I know that one way means that a player is paid the same in the NHL or AHL, where a two way is one salary for AHL one salary for NHL.

My confusion though is the implications of a one/two way deal on waivers. Does it make a difference? Does a person on a one way deal necessarily have to go through waivers?

Darren McCarty signed a two way deal for the wings for example, but he'd obviously have to go through waivers as he's been in the league for so long.

What about somebody like Alex Picard for the Senators? If he doesn't make the team, does he have to go through waivers even though he's only been in the league for a few years now?

any help is appreciated.
