If you can find that section in the CBA I'd love to see it, but I've never heard of a player going to the next highest team that put in a claim when a team tries to send a guy down.
For example, you say Spector says he would have to clear again to get sent down. If true, that would mean either DAL or PIT out in a claim as well. If the Oilers decide to send Chorney down, he would need to clear waivers again, not get sent immediately to DAL or PIT.
