IS this GM game rules or real life rules? real life rules for nhl players like daley its either ahl assignment (hes already there in gm game and would need to be called up and sent back down not sure what the timing rules are on that though) or he has to be released/ go through unconditional waivers (mutual agreement or buyout).
That's real life rules, actually. Brooks Laich cleared waivers in 2016-17 and demanded a trade months later. TOR then exposed him to waivers again as if to say "if someone wants you, they can have you". That's presumably what Bolts is trying to do here, hoping one of us snags Daley.
