Some Junior eligible prospects who remain on NHL rosters:
Brent Burns - Minny plays 10th game tonight, looks like he'll stick.
Dustin Brown - L.A. plays 9th game on Thursday.
Dan Fritsche - Columbus plays 9th game tonight
MA Fleury - Pittsburgh plays 9th game on Thursday.
Patrice Bergeron - Boston Plays 10th game tonight, I'm assuming he will stay.
Eric Staal - Carolina plays 9th game on thursday.
Nathan Horton - Florida plays 10th game on Wednesday.
Am I missing someone?
Right now my guess is everyone. Staal might be the most likely guy to get sent down if Carolina decides he's not ready for a 2nd line role. I thought Horton would be going down but it looks like Florida put the word out that he is staying. Fritsche I'm not too sure about, but the other 4 (Fleury, Bergeron, Burns, Brown) are almost guaranteed to stay up at this point.
