Maybe on HockeyBuzz?
According to information obtained by Tim Panaccio, it is unlikely that defenseman Matt Walker will get medical clearance to play. The defenseman has been dealing with groin, hip and abdominal issues throughout the lockout and is not going to be able to play anytime soon. Even if he were healthy, the new CBA would prohibit the Flyers from burying Walker's full $1.7 million cap hit in the AHL. If medically cleared and assigned to the AHL, the Flyers would still be on the hook for $800,000 of his cap hit. But teams cannot demote injured players. So he is a candidate for long-term injured reserve instead.
