This could be the same sort of thing as what happened with Bryzgalov last year. Everyone knows that the team in question needs to clear cap space, hence no one will deal with them, or they have outrageous trade demands.
Also possible that Holmgren wasn't expecting to lose both of them on waivers or didn't want to give them up, if he could help it.
