Did you stop to think maybe Shero tried to trade him for something, but couldn't?

I can tell you, if I wanted something that was soon going to go on sale, I'd wait it out.
It could depend on when the team who may have interest in him sits in the waiver priority. If a team with, say, 15th or 16th in the waiver priority want Strait because they think he can slot in on their bottom pairing, they might offer a late round pick/mid-level prospect to make sure they get him, rather than take a risk that someone with a higher priority claims him before they get a chance.
