I have no problem with playing your best players regardless of outside factors but I don't see how they can determine his place in the depth chart without guaging him against other NHLers in actual game situations.
Also a fair statement, but we're not sure how things will proceed when/if an NHL season begins...let's just see how the process plays out.

My initial thinking was that the Habs would give him every opportunity to make the team since he's got an invite to camp whenever the NHL resumes activities...so obvioulsy, they're going to give him an opportunity to prove his worth
