Why didn't the Ducks play Wisniewski?

On March 2, the Ducks sent Rene Bourque, William Karlsson and a 2015 second-round draft pick to the Columbus Blue Jackets for offensive-defenseman James Wisniewski.

Making Something out of Playing For Nothing

With Buffalo, Toronto, and Edmonton all fully on board with the tank, putting Brian Gibbons on waivers kinda feels like this might be the first step for Columbus to join them in the race to the bottom.
