Secondly, I would definitely contend that Weber has more value than Matt Kassian. You're arguing players like Nokelainen and Weber have no value, yet you're doing so in comparison to Matt Kassian - a player currently on waivers (so, clearly no value to his team) and who hasn't even played a game yet this year. Must be quite a broad definition, this "no value" thing.
Good point on Nokelainen, they can't put him on waivers.
Say Kassasian is picked up by us (Let's say he is) besides a trade, there is no player Habs can send down, with out going through waivers, in time that would allow them to pick up Kassasian, is there. Unless the league allowed it for 24 hours.
