    There has been speculation about this, but I hadn't seen any solid evidence untill this St Pete Times piece confirmed it:

    http://www.sptimes.com/2005/08/19/Lightning/New_labor_deal_zaps_s.shtml

    Both Willis and Perrin (under the terms of the old CBA) were not exempt from waivers before, so there is still an open question of whether a young player who would otherwise be exempt from waivers (based on age and NHL experience) who makes >$75K on a 2-way deal would be exposed to waivers when called up. My guess is probably not - this term is really designed to prevent teams from circumventing the cap, not to prevent otherwise normal player development.
