So why did they waive him? The only thing I can think of is because sending down other guys will clear space and use him as a 7th defenseman up front. I know Stevens says he likes rolling 4 lines (even though that's a blatant lie), but this is the hand he is dealt. I guess they also don't want to get burn with recall waivers.
They did this so that they CAN send him down at any time in the next 30 days. We don't have to wait 24 hours once we get a definite date on Brieres return. Kukks is the only one we are considering sending down who would have to pass through waivers, anyone else we can send down without having to wait.
