If a team claims Souray on Waivers (Regular Waivers or Re-Entry Waivers) they cannot trade him for the remainder of the season without first offering him at waiver price to any team which put in an unsuccessful (lower priority) claim when Souray was originally claimed.

In the unlikely event that Souray was claimed on Re-Entry Waivers by Team A and traded to Team B (if no other teams had put in a waiver claim or they refused when offered under 13.20(b)), then team B would pick up the salary & cap obligations of Team A - ie. 50% of Souray's remaining salary and cap hit, with the remainder still the responsibility of the Oilers.
