Do anybody here thinks he will be cleared in a month?
Do McPhee knows that for sure?

I think it's a possible scenario.

And McPhee discussing it (can't put him on LTIR blablabla) seems to be just for price negotiation purposes.
Given that he's not even skating yet seeing him before the postseason is extremely unlikely. I'm guessing they're either worried about the off chance that he's ready to go in late march and they're 3-4 points out and would be dying for his return to make it. That or there's no one within reach worth getting.
