There is a period when players with 1 way contracts can be called up or sent down, but I'm not sure of the dates this occurs except that its likely during the off season.
-- “The waiver status of a player is determined by whether he has a 1-way or 2-way contract.”
Answer: False. Whether a player has a 1-way or 2-way contract has absolutely no effect on his waiver status – it has to do with the number of years since the player signed his first NHL contract and the number of NHL games he’s played since signing. In fact, there are ten (10) players who have 1-way contracts for 2007-08 and are exempt from waivers.
I'm pretty certain all three are on waivers.
