Unless Ersberg is traded, Bernier will get sent down. They could of course send Quick down, as he is waiver-exempt, but that would be scandalous. At least two (and maybe all four) of Piskula, Campbell, Martinez and Hickey will be sent to Manchester. They're not going to keep both of Martinez and Hickey, since they are similar "types." Of the forwards who would have to clear waivers, Richardson, Ivanans and Harrold are on the bubble; among the waiver-exempt, Cliche, Lewis and Westgarth would go to Manchester and Schenn and Clifford would return to juniors, but could stick around for their nine games. My guess is, Zeiler getting waived means Clune is staying. One of Westgarth and Ivanans will stay. Harrold will stay due to his versatility. That leaves three of Schenn, Clifford, Lewis, Cliche and Richardson still to be re-assigned. If Schenn and Clifford are going to get their nine games (which I think will happen, but who knows), then Lewis and Cliche will go to Manchester and Richardson will be traded or waived.
