So I would hope that the management uses the better judgment and makes a move before he loses credibility as far as trade value.
The only players that can be assigned to the AHL before the Waivers Period starts are players that are waiver exempt. Tik wouldn't be eligible to be assigned to the AHL [or KHL for that matter] without first clearing waivers.
