What does picked up on waivers mean in hockey?

If a team picks up a player that was placed on waivers, the player will become a member of the team's system. The team that the player left may have waived him to try to free up some salary cap room or send him down to a minor league team. Once the player goes on waivers, any team may claim him within 48 hours. The team losing the player does not receive compensation. A player can only be waived before being sent to the minor leagues if he has played three seasons after his first NHL contract or 180 NHL games. Should multiple teams claim the player, the team that finished with fewer points during the previous season will get the player. The player will go to the minor league team if he is not claimed by any team.

If an NHL team puts a player on waivers and another team claims him how much of the contract is each team responsible for?

If a player is on a two way contract and is put on waivers, the team that takes him must pay all of it. If the player is on a 1 way contract and is sent down to the minors, he is on re-entry waivers. In this case both teams pay half of the contract.
