This is the now. The reality is, we didn't get an update or a vague approximation. We got a BS answer that he's on plan but then since then, everyone refuses to answer what is the plan. That isn't an update, that is skirting the issue and not answering.
The reality is, NHL teams are required to report certain things to the media, its part of the NHL rules. So don't claim we are spoiled, we aren't, it is what it is.
we got info on thursday, from JM himself.
He was on Sportsnet's Hockey Central and he said that Markov was in Florida to see his doctors, he was cleared to resume skating and he was expected to practice before the end of the month.
The fact is, if the team had an exact date, they'd give it to us...
But guess what? They don't have an exact date. The situation changes daily. How Markov's knee responds, how sore it is, how much swelling we see, etc... in the hours and day that follows any vigorous workout has an effect.
This is a fluid situation, and at the same time the team risks over exposure if they do a press release every time every player feels a twinge of pain, or gets a therapy massage.
