I'm gonna go out on a shaky limb and suggest that a d-man will be the next to go. We've only got 7 on the roster right now, but I think that Roche would be the next to be demoted. We've got a pretty set stable of five d-men and Schultz would get the 6th spot right now. Assuming Mitchell is o.k., I think there is much more competition for the forward positions and that each player has staked a better claim to the team than Roche has.
But my "out-in-left-field" prediction would be Schultz. I don't think it'll be anybody that would need to clear waivers or that they cared about keeping. As for Roche, if he gets demoted again, I think his time in MN will be pretty much over. What else can he learn in Houston? And I'm sure he'd rather try another organization at that point too.
