Matt Walker's fate to be announced at 12 noon. Does He Clear or Doesn't He?

In about 30 minutes we should now whether Flyers D Matt Walker was claimed on re-entries or not. If he is not claimed he may play a game or two before Pronger returns.

Walker hasn't played since FEB. 19th. If he is claimed the Flyers will be stuck with his half cap hit of 850k for 2 more years. With them already up against the cap for next year it would be a brutal burden. 

My guess is he clears. But in my opinion, why even bother on a D that is oft-injured and maybe your 8th or 9th best D. Not worth the risk in other words.

Update: Walker clears.
