I doubt it... this isn't the first time he has had to clear waivers.

And realistically, no one is going to lose one of their protected players unless they are getting a significant upgrade (if you pluck a player, you have to expose one).

Valiquette is a good goalie, and probably a starter on any farm team, but I don't think he is enough of an upgrade as a backup goalie on anyone's team to make them want to pick him, and unprotect someone else.
