No re-entry waivers so assuming he clears waivers on the way down he can be recalled anytime without any cap risk. Given the fact that the first $900K of an AHL player's salary doesn't count against the cap, moves like this were exactly what that rule was designed for.
Though personally I'd prefer they leveraged the new rules to acquire a solid but unspectacular depth defenseman rather than an attempt at another career revival. I've seen this movie too many times before with the Canucks and it rarely works out. Oh well, he's a UFA in 5 months.
