I'm sure they've always
had a timetable; at least within days of his first, major surgery. With a broken bone, how can you not?
Not releasing a timetable has PR written all over it. We all know how terrible it looked when the Pens said Sid would be out a week with a concussion. No timetable = no expectations & you cover your own ass if he got an infection (something that apparently could've delayed a return by weeks). Regardless, from the beginning, it was easy to see the rough timetable was at about 4 weeks. We're just past that 4 week mark now, so a return can't be far off--regardless of what happens with the doctor tomorrow.
