What are 'waivers' in hockey?

Waivers are when a team wants to send a player down to the minors or farm team and they have to "waive" the rights to that player before they can send him down. If another team claims that player he is now their property. If the player clears waivers (no one claims him), he remains the property of the original team and can be sent to the minors. The player may be relaesed and can be a free agent.

What does cleared waivers in hockey mean?

If an NHL player is on a one way contract and the team is attempting to send him to the minors, he must first clear waivers. Waivers is when the other 29 teams get a chance to pick the player up off of waivers and the player then becomes a member of that team. The team lowest in the standings gets first bid, and then the next team in the standings gets the second bid, and so on. If the player clears waivers, it means none of the teams picked him up.

When a player is placed on waivers by a team, it allows other teams to claim that player and assume his contract.

If there is no right of recall and no team claims the player, the player is now able to be demoted to the farm system team of the parent team and paid the minor league salary.

Why is the hockey goalie different from other hockey players?

Because it is an entirely different position. It is the only position in hockey that, if you make a mistake, it is recorded on the scoreboard. It takes a different mental approach for a hockey goalie than a player. Also, goalies are on the ice for the entire game, barring being relieved of duties or injury. Hope this helps.
