Because he would require waivers to be demoted. This way ensures he remains tampa property

Correct. Basically it means he's playing in the AHL during the lockout (as others have gone to the KHL, NLA, etc.) and just as those players signed lockout contracts with the teams in those leagues, Aulie has signed with an AHL team for the lockout. When the lockout is over, the contract will be nil and he will do what the Lightning tells him when that point in time comes, whether they decide he makes the team or they waive him for demotion to Syracuse if they so choose to send him down.
