Capitals will have to waive him to send him down.

Devils are the only team who can send him down without waiving *if* they are the only team to make a claim.

So if the Caps waive him, the Devils can basically force another team to keep him in the NHL by putting in a claim. The only AHL team he would play for this year is Albany.
