Because as a veteran player the impact he can bring over a younger waiver-eligible player is minimal. There's lots of guys like Pettinger who are capable of playing a bottom six role in the NHL but nowhere to play because teams have their roster spots filled and have younger players on the farm. At least until you get into a situation like the Canucks where you have so many injuries that even your farm depth gets depleted.
