#Canucks David Booth doesn't sound like he's close to returning after MCL sprain 4 weeks ago: "Being off for 3 weeks feels like 3 months."!/JamiesonCanuck...13105120886784
It just sounds like his conditioning is off, which is to be expected after that long. I don't think it should take that long for him to be back in the swing of things. Get the legs and lungs back, then work on the timing.

Could be...couldn't they have put him on a conditioning stint if they wanted to protect him and have him in the minors?
