However for players such as Zubrus, who is still a valuable player at the NHL level, there is no reason he should be sent down or forced to go back to Europe to play because a team decided that it wanted to make a signing it didn't have room for.
If he's "worthy of a roster spot" then he'll be claimed by another team. If 29 other GMs don't think he is worth his contract then sending him to the AHL/overseas is completely justified.
