Naturally, anytime a player gets injured, one of these guys gets called up and when the injured player returns, you have to put the called up player thru waivers before sending him back down.

To solve this problem, the key is to sign ****** players who you know will clear waivers.
They are all dime a dozen fringe nhl/ahl players who have little to no value.
