Exempt---how? He has to clear waivers to be sent down to the AHL.

In terms of buffalo his odds were stacked against him. He is a 4th liner and buffalo has Scott and Kaleta assured a spot and then a likely battle between Porter and McCormick for the center job with McCormick having the edge. What complicates things further is the liklihood of Buffalo going with 8 Dmen and 13 forwards to start the season.

this really wasnt a slap against him, but maybe giving him a chance to find an NHL job on another team.
