I believe the rule has something to do with playing overseas in that given year. I.e. Nabokov started last year in Europe, because he didn't sign before Jan 1, he had to clear waivers.

In the lockout year, they obviously waived, or moved back that deadline to accomodate the normal free agents who were waiting until camp to sign. Presumably, ROR hasn't played in Europe since whenever that Jan 1 deadline was moved to....
