Why the Wild placed Veilleux on waivers

From Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

“We are far apart in our evaluation and Steph really believes in a higher number,” Lynn said. “So here’s a way of figuring out who’s right: ‘If you’re right, you’ll be taken off waivers and paid your X dollars by another team.’

“If we’re right and he goes through waivers, Steph will see nobody claimed him and it might bring the sides together and solve the problem before [Veilleux’s] arbitration [hearing Monday].”

Tom Lynn is known for his tough negotiating, which is why I didn’t understand why Veilleux opted to negotiate his own contract.
