A team cannot assign/loan a player to the AHL unless the player clears waivers during the Playing Season Waiver Period - staring 12 days before the start of the regular season.
If a player has already cleared waivers the previous season and was loaned to the AHL and was not on the NHL roster at the end of the regular season (see McGillis, Dan), I believe he can be sent back down after training camp without clearing waivers again as long as he is not back on the NHL roster for more than 30 days or 10 games.
I'm thinking for other players other than McGillis. Brylin has a salary that would put him on the trade block, but he's signed for three more years I believe. I don't think we'd get fair value in return so giving him a 1 year AHL hiatus could help us out in 07-08 when we have plenty of cap space.
