The other thing Weber gives us is a cheap #7/8 again for next season. Assuming Kaberle will be gone, then Weber is "less redundant" next year. And cheap. Kinda sucks for Weber if he's not getting a chance to play and develop. But for our purposes, if we don't have anybody ready to step up and displace him, he's as good a warm body as any, and isn't likely to depreciate much relative to his current value.
If we can get value we can always replace him with a cheap UFA if Tinordi/Beaulieu are not ready. St.Denis could be an option in that #7 role too, would be a good fit there.
