We do have a grace period here. If he doesn't make the team out of training camp, he can be assigned to the AHL before a certain date before being subject to waivers.

With that said, if he doesn't make the team and is assigned to Portland before the waiver period, he can't be called up or sent down after that without the risk of losing him. So I would hope that the management uses the better judgment and makes a move before he loses credibility as far as trade value.
