Leclair clears waivers - Roy to WBS

John Leclair has cleared waivers. He can now be sent to Wilkes-Barre and recalled on re-entry waivers. The benefit to this is that anyone claiming him on re-entry waivers isn't responsible for as much of his $1.5 million salary - they only have to pick up half, I believe.

Andre Roy was assigned to Wilkes-Barre. According to the article, he is on re-entry waivers.

The Pens are essentially trying to give these guys away right now, with other teams paying half of their salary if they claim them off of re-entry waivers. From the Pens standpoint, it's better than cutting them outright, since they'd be responsible for the entire salary (as opposed to half).
