Waiver eligibility is based on pro experience.
Two-way contracts relate to the salary of a player in the NHL or the AHL.

Yup. The biggest implication of two-way contracts is re-entry waivers. Players making more than $105,000 in the AHL have to pass through re-entry waivers before they can be called up; Strait's two-way deal sees him make exactly $105,000 in the AHL, so he's clear of REW.

Ok then, some wiggle room for the defense laden Pens.
