Incorrect. He's an overaged European, he signed a one-year entry level deal and is currently an RFA. If he doesn't make the Habs next year he can be plucked on waivers. Same story with Emelin.

Incorrect again. Weber would have been on waivers if the Habs sent him down THIS season, he definitely will be waiver fodder on the way down if the Habs are that dumb NEXT season. One-way contracts have absolutely nothing to do with waivers. It's based on years of service and games played, plus the age a player was when he signed his first contract. Next season will be Weber's 5th in the NHL. He will get picked on waivers if he's sent to Hamilton.

Incorrect again. He is signed through the 2014-15 season with Philly. This goes for everyone else too - we can't sign Grossman. Stop suggesting this as an idea.

Looks like this was directed at me. I had those guys as the # 7 and # 8 D going into the season, not an actual pairing. As you might have guessed, only 6 D get into the lineup each game, since RC will not be the coach next year. No one is suggesting Weber and Diaz play together on the same shift. I'm saying we keep both, even if they're only extras, to avoid the costly mistake of losing them for nothing.
