I would guess we'd go back to the old system, where you simply waived an eligible player before assigning him to another pro league. It will be good for the players too, because there were several guys that were stuck in the minors because the teams didn't want to pay them to play for someone else. There used to be quite a bit of movement on the wire (and the waiver-draft). It helped teams when the injury bug hit and kept fringe players in the NHL.
