Here's a snippet from the Tampa beat writer. Explains why Wyman sent down but also relates an AHL rule that may clear up who had to be waived and who didn't.
Put on waivers was forward J.T. Wyman. That was done, Lightning assistant general manager Julien BriseBois said, because of an AHL rule that players who did not finish a previous season with an AHL club and were not on a Clear Day (playoff-eligible) list, must pass through waivers to be assigned to an AHL team.
Edit: so to use the Lightning as an example, Aulie, Labrie, and the like don't need waivers since they were on Norfolk's clear day roster last season. Hope that helps.
Edit 2: So just like Blind Gardien said before me. Lol
