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.
