Also, found this on Bombulie's blog;
"The WBS Penguins announced today that they have signed winger Eric Tangradi, defensemen Brian Strait and Robert Bortuzzo and goalies Brad Thiessen and Jeff Zatkoff to AHL contracts.

They’re essentially lockout deals, getting the players on the WBS roster without subjecting them to waivers."
Yes but those guys already signed their qualifying offers so when the lock out ends they revert back to their NHL deals. So yes they would have to pass through waivers. I don't think re-enrty waivers would apply in this case.
