Can someone explain why he would have had to go through a waiver period?
Per article from sports net it has to do with ROR playing two games in Russia after the NHL season started, he was a free agent so he would be in the group of Nabakov etc and thus would be subject to waivers to play for a new team in the NHL. However because he was on colorado's roster he would not have to go through this.
