The way I look at it is if Bart gets beat out enough that they would send him down then it may actually be an advantage to gain a signing spot... They have veterans and prospects that are itching to prove what they got, so if Gus has it going enough to win the job, then so be it... And I think Bart is a fine young D-man who will no lose his slot; but who knows.
These waiver rules were structured and put in place to prevent stockpiling of players for an extended period of time... It certainly is doing its job as this situation may point out if Gus forces the issue with his play.
