Forsberg FA question

Ok, it's stated opinion that PF will go back to Sweden. And officially on July 1 he's a UFA, right? Isn't there a clause in the "New" CBA regarding signing UFA's to the effect that if a team tries to sign a UFA he goes on waivers? Or is that for FA's PLAYING in a league in Europe?

I believe that applies to signing FA's already playing in a European league. For instance: Forsberg goes to play for Modo this season and then decides to sign an NHL contract after he has been playing for Modo. Forsberg would be placed on waivers, so it would be tough to get him on the team he signed with. As a GM you'd almost have to call the team with the worst record and ask them to pick him up and then trade for him.

Thanks. I knew it was something like that. St. Louis stole Orszagh from somebody just after the lockout with this clause. Phoenix maybe?
