If Perry got Waived and Dubas claimed him that would be pretty funny.

Cause people were saying it was a mistake to choose simmonds over him well with that we would have both

but lets be real we always got something to complain about

It doesn't matter, every team is going to be risking guys on waivers, if you lose one of them you could probably claim a similar guy from some other team.

The point of signing them is to have them on the Taxi Squad. If they get claimed then the team that claims them has to have them on their squad or they will end up in Montreal. It gives us the upper hand.

For this reason but also for internal competition, which I think is great. Guys like Armia, Byron and Lehkonen will be pushed to do better. Guys with higher contracts are also more likely to end up on taxi squads so these guys will have to earn their spot.
Same deal for PP guy Weal flushed cheeks

Is this to save cap space as they’ll have multiple players paid a pension?

Yes, but every teams will send a bunch of players
I doubt they will be claimed
Only Juulsen might be claimed by DET or NJ
