Hope he goes. We really need to keep this momentum
An optional skate isn't the same intensity as a full practice though so I wouldn't put too much stock in that. Unless there are reports he was skating hard, he may have been out there to get a feel for whatever he hurt. It's a good sign in that he's able to skate but it also doesn't imply he'll be back right away or that it won't be a nagging issue going forward.

Personally I'm worried by how much Buff is getting hurt. He's too crucial to the team to miss significant time every year. I can't help but think they need to get him to lose some weight. Bertuzzi used to be ~250 lbs and raved about how dropping a bunch of weight helped with his nagging back/groin/knees (don't really remember which).
