On the top of my head: Players that went through waivers in the past:
Martin St.Louis - 6M$
Steve Sullivan - 3,2M$
Thomas Vokoun - 2,3M$
Daniel Brière - guess he will sign for more than 3M$.
Matthieu Garon - expect something near 2M$.
Ron Hainsey - we will see how he turns out
François Beauchemin - we will see how he turns out

The list is much much longer... I just don't want to take the time to think about it.

He was waived because he was small... the NHL changed: you will see smaller D-men more and more and slow D-men less and less........
