Very well might have happened over the summer though, Murray's done this before like in 2008-2009 where Neil went it alone (then Carkner finally got his shot at 28 the next year) and even New Jersey did it in 2010-11 when Peters was bought out and Leblond sent down.
Just have to work hard and be in the right place at the right time.
Hordichuk and Janssen are the most notable odd men out right now, but they had the drive to make the NHL, if the chance appears they'll have the drive to return.
