It's customary that when teams have a few days in between games that guys go up and down to the minors. It's not all that uncommon, and the Flyers don't care either way because the Flyers and Phantoms practice in the same building.

It's also likely not about saving cap space. The Flyers get to replace the salary of injured players, especially with all the players we have on LTIR. They're up against it, but they're not at the point where $300K is the difference in who gets called up. Keep in mind that Cote is on LTIR, so they get to replace his salary even though it's not that much. It's still per day, we're talking pennies here.
