Ah, it really doesn't... playoff revenue is a big deal to teams, and guys like Cole aren't going to return a huge chip in a trade.

I am almost 100% positive that the waiver rules remain in effect until the end of the season (i.e. the final game of the SCF). Independent of that, I'm not sure a player that has to pass through waivers can be eligible for postseason play for you (similar to a player acquired after the deadline).

If this isn't the rule, then it's a massive hole in the CBA. Logically, it would be a huge competitive advantage for wealthy teams to be able to stash a player in the minors at the deadline and then bring him back up without having to worry about re-entry come playoff time.
