Does Weber need to clear to be send down?
no, it's the last year for Weber, the following season he will have to clear waivers to be sent down.

Agents and players will be hesitant if they perceive that to be the situation here.
Not sure how signing a FA implies nobody wanted him. But if they did want him, they could have drafted him in either of the two previous drafts before he signed.

But the Habs have to do what's best for them, not what's best for Brock Trotter.

I don't recall hearing 10 teams were intersted, as his signing sort of came out of no where since he was being kicked off his team and possibily out of school so he opted to sign with an NHL team, and it was said that the Habs showed a lot of interest in him for the '07 draft but never selected him so he signed with us.
