Since there is about to be a lockout, wouldn't you be sending the player to the minors as well, thus re exposing them to waivers, giving the original team the option to reclaim and directly assign (bypassing waivers) the player to the minors?
If you claim somebody today, you can't put them back on waivers because there's not enough time. They become locked out NHL players. If you want them to play on your AHL team, you call them (as GM of the AHL team) and offer them a contract.
