Protecting Intranuovo and Zhurik allows the others to do that. And if Lowe decides to take someone in the draft, he won't have to expose a Wright or a Henrich, he'll expose the cannon fodder.
Sounds to me like it's an educated gamble (if that makes sense)
Those guys would have to clear waivers in order to be sent down to the minors anyways, and at least during the waiver draft, you can pluck someone else to fill your need if you lose someone you want.
If he sends them down after the waiver draft and someone picks them up, he won't be able to pick up anyone to replace them.
Good call... I have spent an hour on the internet looking for some weird loophole, when really the answer is pretty simple.
