I don't think that's correct. If a player is placed on waivers and clears. He can be assigned to a minor league team as long as he hasn't been on the roster for more than 30 days (or played in 10 games) since he last cleared waivers.

There isn't any stipulation that he must stay on the team for 30 days if you claim a player, unless its new to this CBA. Brett Maclean for example was claimed by the Jets last season on Oct 5. Only played 5 games then was placed on waivers Oct 28th and reclaimed by the Coyotes.
