Good move. Glad Brown is finally gone.
Not if I'm reading the CBA correctly:

13.22 When a Club claims a player on Regular, Re-Entry, or Unconditional Waivers, and, subsequently, in the same season it requests Waivers on the same Player and the original owning Club is the successful and only Club making a Waiver claim, then the original owning Club shall be entitled to Loan such Player to a club in another league within thirty days without further Waivers being asked; provided that such player has not participated in ten or more NHL Games (cumulative) and remained on an NHL roster more than thirty days (cumulative) following such a successful claim.
So because the Canucks would have been the only team to put in a claim they could have sent him straight down to the Moose. They traded Mike Brown for him on the off chance that some other team would put in a claim for McIver so that they wouldn't be able to send him down without offering him to them first.
