And IMO that's just a horrible way of going about the waiver draft. What if by the time you select, the player (s) you wanted are gone. Then the guys who were of decent quality that you left unprotected are gone and all you got to show for it is the fact that hey, we protected Ralph Intranuovo!

Mise well just protect those guys from the start and then, if you do see someone you want to select, then sure you drop them off the protected list then.
the preds protected petr hubacek, pavel skrbek and marian cisar...none of whom will ever play in the NHL again. it gives us a bit of room to wriggle\pick some guys up.
