Correct. Personally i would have no problem getting rid of Kaberle or Weber for an enforcer. Preferably Kaberle as it would also help with the cap as well. They're both offensive defensemen and quite redundant on this team. May as well replace one of them with an enforcer and diversify the toolbox a bit. That leave the Habs with a spare defensemen + an enforcer. And then in the playoffs it become a non issue since there is no roster limit.
As for Noke , not sure what's their plan for him. Perhaps he's going to get waived but i don't think there is a spot for him in the lineup this year unless they only want to reactivate him from the injury reserve come playoff time and have him as an emergency option in case of injury
