LeBrun said he heard from multiple sources that DW is trying to land a top 6 foward.
It is possible that waiving Nitty is a precursor to such a deal, i.e. clearing out dead cap space for that move. Of course DW would have love to get something for him, but if there is no trade value, there is no trade value.
For example, if DW is on the verge of acquiring someone with the cap hit of someone like Semin (not saying Semin, just someone in that cap hit range), moving/waiving/dump Nitty would have to be done prior to acquiring that guy.
