Sometimes it's been done to just see if someone will take the contract or to facilitate a trade.
Here's more on the waiver rules.
A player may be loaned to a club of another league if (a) he’s already been through waivers during the current waiver period and (b) the Player has not played in 10 or more NHL Games since the last time he went through waivers, and (c) more than 30 days have not passed since the last time he went through waivers.
In other words, if a player just went through waivers within the last month and hasn’t played in many games, he’s not going to have to clear waivers again.
Agree that there are lot's of reasons that a player could be on waivers.
It could be that they put him waivers to make it easier to send him down to Bingo for a cup run there if required. Is it a coincidence that the season ends 30 days after he clears waivers? (assuming he clears).
like it was said, there are other reasons he could have been placed on waivers.
