It's all observables, can't really make a decision what to do *now*, and there's really no need. It'll sort itself out,
and waiving Kaberle or Nokelainen if that's what it comes down to is nothing to worry about
Kaberle (remember when he joined us last season? Our PP% went up 50%) has more value than Weber. Currently, our Canadiens have one of the best records in the East so... why should they waive a legit NHLer? Btw, you acted the same way about Bourque last season!
Second to getting bigger and tougher in our back end, one of the things we must improve on before reaching Contender status is winning face-offs. I think you are undervaluing how valuable Nokelainen can be as a right-handed face-offs specialist. We really suck in the FO circle.
I say, if it becomes necessary, Weber for a 3rd-6th round pick.
