Sorry to bug you guys, just wondering if there is any word on when Saku will actually return. I have looked around but can't seem to find an awnser. A week ago it was the next game every day but I haven't heard anything lately, is there a new problem. If there is already an ongoing thread about this could you provide a link before you close this, again i couldn't find a current one. Thanks..
It seems Koivu might have started training too soon which could have slowed the healing process of his knee. Management want to make sure he's 100% before returning, as the Habs can't aford to lose him for a good portion of the year. He made the trip to Boston but is unlikely to play. Still, it seems that finally there's hope for a quick return. Maybe they'll insert him in the lineup next week along with Chad Kilger who's on a conditioning stint in Hamilton for 3 games. That's all we know so far.
Right now, Koivu is day to day. I don't think anybody including Koivu or the team can pinpoint an exact date. Could be tonite could be saturdya could be 2 weeks. I think once he has a practise without felling anymore twinges in the knee, he'll play the next game.
