I think guys like Michel Ouellet & Kyle Wellwood were subject to recall waivers because they are no longer exempt from waivers and they make over a minimum amount of money.
O'Byrne is not subject to recall waivers until after he becomes exempt from waivers, I believe.
Yes, but Ozymandias and Thief50 are speaking past each other.
The WAIVER status changes as soon as the number of games required is hit.
The RE-ENTRY WAIVER status changes only after the end of the year.
O'Byrne will become subject to waivers to go down IF (as soon as) he hits 70 NHL games, including playoffs.
EDIT: O'Byrne will be subject to re-entry waivers once he is subject to waivers. The exception for re-entry waivers for anyone who has played one or more games in either the NHL or a pro minor league is ONLY for players 25 years of age and older.
