Its all cap relief as GMs know the players won't be picked up.

Someone should pick up Byron. Little spark plug that can rebound.
Is Ottawa in a position to claim the home town boy Byron? It seems he'd be a pretty good add to a team filled with young players.
In position yes but would be a dumb move for them.
Why would it be dumb? Is it a cap thing?
Money wise, just would be a dumb move.
They could call Montreal after he clears and work out a trade where they get paid to take him.
Garth Snow would be all about claiming Carlsson, seems like a good flyer to take.
Apparently Lindholm's waivers are unconditional for mutual termination (going to SHL)
Carlsson seems like a good pick up, can cbj fans say?
3.4 million cap hit
4 goals in his last 50+ games
2 years remaining after this season
Take your pick from above
Byron is one of the fastest player in the league, easely. Excellent on the PK. Can put 10 goals per year.
But 3.4M a year is way too much. Love Byron, but would love him even more at 2M a year.
He is absolutly a NHL player tho and would be playing on almost any team's line-up right now.
Was even checking his salary it’s greater next year then his hit weirdly enough
The cap struggle is real.
I saw that too, but no official source confirmed that the waivers is unconditional and capfriendly list that like a regular waivers. Maybe later this week he will be put on unconditional but I don't think that yesterday's one was un unconditional.
seems like going SHL is the plan
AVSLÖJAR: Lindholm lämnar Boston för Skellefteå
Yeah, I know that was the plan, my comment applied to the nature of the waivers of yesterday, even capfriendly had list it as a regular waiver but the correction was made this noon and it's confirmed for the unconditional.

From what I have read his skating is too slow for the NHL and provides almost zero offense.
Lots of players negotiated 2020-21 salaries that were lower then their contract average. The reason being there was a possibility that the CBA could terminate in 2020 and the 2020-21 season might be delayed if the parties couldn't negotiate a new CBA on time. Similar situation for 2022 and the 2022-23 season, which was the 2nd date the CBA could terminate.
The Oilers rotating parade of Bottom 6 forwards on waivers continues
If Byron stays on the taxi squad do the Habs get any cap savings at all ? From what I’ve read it doesn’t seem like much
They get $1,075,000. That's the most savings that can be banked by burying a player, this year
