Not like it quite worked out for Columbus either, though. At the time, it was more controversial just that they essentially got him in Syracuse to play against Hamilton. Nobody ever thought he'd emerge like he did in Anaheim.
I think it worked out for Columbus. He made the team and he was later traded for Sergei Fedorov. I know that it was mostly a salary dump, but it's not like Beauchemin had negative value at that time.

Put on waivers was forward J.T. Wyman.

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.
Thanks. I'm not sure how this works out for the Habs. Palushaj and St.Denis were on the clear day roster list but they finished the season in Montreal.
