The Philadelphia Flyers are doing what they can to get Mark Streit back into the mix without needing to demote Shayne Gostisbehere.

With the deadline to clear room being Wednesday’s game, the Flyers put Sam Gagner on waivers on Tuesday, and it’s possible that this alignment will work for Philly.

The Courier-Post’s Dave Isaac did some of the math:

That’s not to say that it would be the absolute ideal situation. Isaac also notes that the Flyers would carry eight defensemen in this alignment.

Gagner isn’t the only noteworthy player placed on waivers, as the St. Louis Blues did the same thing with Scott Gomez.

In other waiver news, David Rundblad ranked among the players who cleared waivers.
