Considering they would have aquired Parent through waivers in the first place, it's not like they couldn't waive him themselves. And with Belle's contract being up, they may want him as depth on the farm (if he doesn't get claimed).

I can't see a mid-season waiver claim/7th defenseman being the reason not to add a legitimate top 4 defenseman in the offseason.
