Yeah, it's going to depend on multiple factors but if the Habs can't get rid of some deadweight contracts, Walsh might be the one to pay the price. Pribyl despite the fact that he won't make the NHL if he can't improve his skating has a bit more going for him and doesn't seem to be quite as injury prone, not to mention is younger. Meanwhile the defenders have all shown promise even with Saskatoon's woes.

I guess it's still possible they let Nygren go if he doesn't seem committed to North America, there's still Swedes on hfboards who watch him regularly who think he's more likely to have a good SEL career than be an NHLer but he's shown improvements in every area of his game this year and it's more likely that a defender ends up being a late bloomer surprise.

If it comes down to Walsh vs Pribyl, IMO they are better off going with the latter.
