Exactly. I'll be shocked if we see any of this group of 7 changing next season. The only thing I could see is if they sign an 8th guy, of the bigger experienced stay-at-home type. Regehr and Murray are commonly mentioned candidates. Going with 8 is fine, there is usually plenty of ice to go around, and I wouldn't feel too committed to giving Bouillon much/any of it.

Diaz may have struggled a lot after his return from injury, but he played so well before the injury, and he's a solid asset at a great price. He's also good insurance for Markov.

I'd seriously consider re-signing Weber and let him try to find himself in Hamilton.
Absolutely. There's no reason not to, if he'll actually take the contract. You have to qualify him at I think $945,000, and then pass that through waivers, but I don't see any harm in trying that. I won't be too surprised however if they just don't qualify him. Depth in Hamilton can't hurt. But I can see the team not really wanting to pay $945,000 for it.
