Sebastien Caron was placed on waivers yesterday, December 2nd. He wasn't claimed and will remain with the club for the time being.
I'm not sure if they did this to play equal time for Thibault, or if they're just trying to set all of their options, but when no one in the NHL wants the two goalies that were at the top of your depth chart until recently.... it's not a good sign.
Having said that, my understand is that if either one is sent down, they'll also have to clear waivers on the way back up to the big club if the Pens call them up. If I'm another team, I may wait to see if they get their play straightened out first.
I am kind of surprised no one took a look at Caron - he's much more cost effective than Thibault and has played well at times this year.
