They can still be claimed. The "special" aspect of this waiver period is that, at the end of the lock-out (should there be one), these players can be recalled and any of them who are eligible for 're-entry' waivers will not have to do so.

And the possibility of players being claimed is very real

per Aaron Portzline
Even with 'waiver window' created by NHL/NHLPA pact, some teams very reluctant to expose players ... even w lockout looming.
Those teams, possibly including #CBJ, will sign those 2-way guys to strictly AHL deals after lockout begins. Will pay them pre-set AHL $$$.
