A two-way deal just means you get paid two different salaries in the NHL and AHL. Has nothing to do with waiver eligibility.

Glad to see Blum signed and to something this cheap. Could surprise alot of people this year. He'll have to work for it though. The depth at defense will be hard to crack.

Kudos to the OP who called the trade originally. Well done.
