I know that last year, if you signed a guy from Europe, he needed to clear waivers before playing a game (for example: Nabokov signing with the Red Wings, then being claimed by the Islanders).
I'm fairly sure the new CBA has eliminated waivers for mid-season signings from Europe, though I admit to only being a CBA padawan: a full-fledged CBA Jedi might want to chime in to either confirm or discredit my belief.
As far as I know, as soon as a player's season is over, assuming his European contract is up, he's free to sign a contract with an NHL team. No waivers: just straight onto his new club.
