All very true. Hopefully, it doesn't take a bad injury to get him up. I look at a guy like Cleary and think that he could easily clear waivers and be sent down. And if he gets claimed off of waivers, great!
I'd be shocked if he didn't. Remember Ericsson? Babcock said that he was the best player he had sent down. They had to because he could still clear waivers. It took Smith forever to get up here too.
Once the waiver thingie is gone, Nyquist will be up with us. If not then, he most certainly will be for the playoffs. If someone sustains a season-ending injury before that (hopefully not, just throwing out the thought since it is possible), he will be up before that.
