One of the newer CBA rules that I hadn't considered for the Dallas Stars is the new way they count cap in the NHL.
Only cap hits on one-way contracts that are $375K more than the league minimum count on the cup, and only the remaining cap hit over that amount is applied to the cap.
League minimum is $525K, so the number this year is $900K.
Easy example is Wade Redden. His cap is $6.5 million. In the minors this season, he counts $5.6 million against Rangers cap.
Tom Wandell's cap hit is $892,500. He's very likely outside of the Top 12 at this point. He'd required waivers, but I'd rather they risk him than Sceviour.
Furthermore, it's unconfirmed, and I haven't seen it mentioned yet, but there were rumors re-entry waivers were going away. I think you could fairly easily sneak him through regular waivers, and he could be recalled if he gets his game together.
