This is from yesterday:

Under the NHL's Collective Bargaining Agreement, teams can carry no more than 23 players on their active rosters and if Leighton is deemed medically cleared to play, the Flyers must remove a player from their roster to make room for him.

"In order to activate Michael something has to happen," Holmgren told reporters in Boston on Saturday. "Who the heck knows? Lots of thing can happen between now and then."

Under the CBA a team can send each player to the minors for a conditioning assignment twice a season, if the player agrees. The Flyers are likely to ask seventh defenseman Oskars Bartulis, who has not played since Nov. 1, a span of 19 games,to return to the Phantoms for his second conditioning stint of the season. Bartulis,who has played just three games for the Flyers this season, was sent to the Phantoms for a conditioning assignment from Oct. 23 through Oct. 31.

"It's not an ideal situation, but we talked to Oskars about it," Holmgren said. "What are you gonna do? There's depth there. At some point if this continues I would probably want to see if he wants to go down just to get some games played. It is what it is."
BATTLE ROYAL: "What are you gonna do" vs. ""Who the heck knows" vs. "It is what it is"
