Just need league approval. If a goalie goes down due to injury, you argue that Backlund isn't an NHL goaltender or NHL ready, but Leighton is a proven NHL goalie. Then when our goalie returns, Leighton goes back to the AHL.
Well, Backlund has to go through waivers too.

Not sure why the NHL would care that the Flyers have goalies on their ledger that they don't deem "NHL ready". I mean, sure, maybe... but I think it would be perfectly justifiable for the league to tell them to recall the guy that doesn't need to go through waivers in an emergency situation.
