Edit: If I'm not mistaken, a player claimed on the way down has his ENTIRE cap hit transferred to the claiming team, taking the Flyers "off the hook," while if he gets claimed on recall waivers, the Flyers would get stuck with 50% of the cap hit for the duration of the contract (see Randy Jones). I could be wrong on that first part though.
That is correct.
But Walker is not getting waived (at least to start the season). Why would Homer even acquire him and speak of him as being a big part of our defense if he was just going to waive him? If we waive Bartulis, I'd almost guarantee someone claims him, and then we lose him for nothing (as far as I know, there is still confusion as to whether or not Bartulis is waiver eligible).
