I don't see why the team would rush Plekanecs return when they are in a VERY comfortable position.
I think it was a precaution and I'm pertty sure he's at near 100%. (assumption)
BTW- Bourque also taking part in the team practice.
I hope Bourque has no setbacks and the team takes its time with him. The way he was playing this season would be a huge plus for our playoff run. This team has depth that will give all opponents fits if we're healthy. Don't rush him back but hopefully he gets a few regular season games in.
But there's a good chance we'll have Diaz and Emelin for the playoffs right?
I expect Diaz to be back for the playoffs. I think he'll get a few games in beforehand too - at least I hope so.
Playoffs are only 3 weeks away now, so I don't know about Emelin. If it's badly sprained it could easily be 6-8 weeks for him. Bad timing for sure. It would be nice to go into the playoffs healthy for once, but that doesn't look like it's going to happen now.
