    The old printer is listed as "Default" for your system not only in the "system preferences" but also various programs that are preferenced to your old printer. The most likely are programs that have a print option. Also, If you keep a history file going back, there are likely references to your old printer there too. So if you go back into the system the old print system may pop-up when you call for a print of an old doc, img, etc.
