Don't forget that very often, players going down the wire are in that position because the waiving team couldn't arrange a trade or simply didn't find any takers. So the inherit quality of players, plus the contract limit, prevents teams from racking up claims.

Owners obviously don't want to dish out hundreds of thousands on players who are essentially deadweight at the NHL level which is why guys like Boychuk get waived all the time.
