Regarding waivers, if TB claimed CD, they'd have to keep him in NHL (not their plan with Lindback/Garon being the goaltenders). If they then tried to send him to Syracuse, the original team could easily reclaim him and send him to their AHL affiliate, which I assume MTL would have done. That's why I'd assume they didn't claim him.

Reading Yzerman's comments, I'd assume CD will moreso be the #1 goaltender or a decent split. He wants CD in case someone gets injured, you don't want your #3 goaltender as a cold AHL backup. He also said this was because of Syracuse's instability in goaltending.
