re-entry waivers are eliminated altogether, but applied to O'reilly because of his RFA status under the old cba. now it's just return waivers which state that the player who has played outside of north america must go through waivers before playing in the NHL. there are no exceptions like re-entry waivers had.

so yeah, waiver rules would apply to Kuz.
