I'm not an expert on this but I reasonable certain the following is true:
McLaren was not on LTIR, he was on the "non roster, injured" list (or whatever it's officially called). His salary did not count against the cap nor does he count against the NHL roster maximum because he is not officially assigned to a roster.
He could have come off that list and played an NHL game without a conditioning loan. A player has the right to refuse a conditioning loan.
There are two types conditioning loans; the first is a 14 day loan where the player's NHL salary counts against the NHL salary cap, and the second is a 3 game loan where the player's salary does not count against the NHL cap...the 3 game loan can only be used once per specific injury.
You cannot assign waive nor assign a player to the AHL that is injured without his permission.
