Don't know if waivers account for anything here but here's some news from today.
The Flyers practiced for nearly 2 1/2 hours yesterday, their first session as one group . . .
Four players were placed on waivers:
C Ben Holmstrom
RW Kris Newbury
D Marc-Andre Bourdon
G Yann Danis
Teams have until noon today to claim them, otherwise they will be assigned to AHL Adirondack . . . Zac Rinaldo (upper-body) is fully healthy . . . Claude Giroux (right hand) participated in puck battles for the first time yesterday. He would like to play in Tuesday's exhibition game against New Jersey if cleared by a doctor.
