If you're trying to create room either to open up space for a college FA signing or for a 1-for-multiple trade, you need to waive someone who you know will get claimed - and therefore subtracted from your contract count.
I remember Sather waiving Voros, Rissmiller all of those bums right before the deadline as a way to clear a roster spot

Gilroy and Bickel will be waived at some point
