However, with this type of injury, you can never say he will be back to start the playoffs. I'll wait till he's cleared for contact first.
Of course you would, as would anyon, I think what Farhan and Botch are saying is that he is right on schedule and looks like if it all progresses well, he will be ready for game 1.
He could be cleared for contact on Monday. Point is Francis lives in Calgary, and if I'm Vancouver managment you bet I say he isn't close. Vancouver is extremely guarded about their team and injuries. They are going to say whatever they can to throw off the media.
Daniel could be ready to return, or he's still weeks away for all we know. No one in the Canucks org. is saying anything about Danny's status so I'm not entirely believing anyone's rumours until I hear from AV/MG.
Day to day. Everybody's day to day. So frustrating.
Carter's already said he's playing, even though he's still injured. Sucks that Kings fans get to know stuff about their team and we don't get to know the same about our team. I guess it does give us an advantage knowing exactly how Carter is injured. Hopefully the boys make him block a lot of shots.
