For all we know, Bucky got into a heated debate with a Flyers' beat reporter on which team would get an injured defenseman back first and just wanted to add salt on the Pronger hype by predicting a Leopold recovery.
And if Leopold doesn't play, it will be Larry Quinn's fault because he let Briere/Drury go

They may have rushed Sekera back and now they're having to rush Leopold back because Sekera re-aggravated his injury. Reg only played 11:15 and averaged 30 seconds per shift. Even if not in game condition, I'd expect more ice time from a guy who can skate like Sekera. I'm not concerned about Leopold taking a slappers. I'd rather see our D take quick wristers and get them to the net.
