VOORHEES, N.J. — The more injuries pile up, the more creative accounting the Flyers have to do. On Tuesday morning Ben Holmstrom and Harry Zolnierczyk were on the ice to practice with the Flyers as Matt Read and Danny Briere remain absent.
Matt Walker was not on the ice. While the team has yet to confirm a corresponding roster move, the only way the Flyers can make room for Holmstrom and Zolnierczyk is by either putting a player on long-term injured reserve or demoting Walker to the Adirondack Phantoms.
Walker would not have to be waived because he still has a couple of days of waiver eligibility left from when the team first waived him on Oct. 4.
In his one game with the Flyers this season, Zolnierczyk scored his first NHL goal in a 7-2 win over Ottawa in October. Holmstrom, 24, is the captain of the Phantoms and has four assists through eight games.

One of my concerns with Rinaldo has been that he would injure himself with the way he flies around running into people. Hopefully this is just a disease. I'm not exactly his biggest fan but injuries suck.
Down in the basement, I've got a Craftsman lathe. Show it to the children when they misbehave.
