or teams rosters were full, or it would put them over the cap, or they would have to waive a different player to make room, or teams wanted to keep their waiver position for a potentially better player.... waivers is a tricky process, but by no means directly reflects the value of a player.
i'm not saying Baertschi is valuable. he's injury prone, but when healthy is a solid middle 6 guy. a 4th or 5th would be a fair price. but he does not have no value at all, and for sure does not have negative value.
the only reason he is in the minors is because of the cap releif, and there were other (cheaper) players the fit VAN's system better than he did
