It would certainly be accurate to say that Ouellet has no trade value, however. Passed through waivers and now in the minors. Cut and dry.
Actually, the fact he passed waivers boosts his trade value. Now the Capitals could trade him to another team and the recieving team could just stick him on the farm. Same with how Leighton was traded after clearing waivers.
